How Do Ductless Mini Split AC Systems Work?
Ductless heating and cooling systems are a viable alternative to traditional central heating and air. One of the main advantages of a mini-split system is that it allows you to control temperatures in individual rooms, making it easier for everyone to be comfortable no matter where in the house they are.
Mini-split systems are typically made up of two components: an outdoor condenser or compressor, and an indoor evaporator or air handler. Another advantage the mini-split system has over central AC systems is that they’re perfect for homes without ductwork, which means they’re easier and quicker to install.
Because mini-split systems don’t use ductwork to move air through the house, they’re more efficient than central air systems, which lose airflow through ducts. According to some experts, energy losses through ducts can increase your power consumption by up to 30%. Because mini-split systems are more efficient, you get all the cooling of a central air system, while saving money on your energy bills.
