How Does Ductless AC Work?
Ductless heat pumps provide heating as well as cooling. A ductless air conditioner is a one-way ductless heat pump. These systems generate cool air just like central cooling systems. However, centralized use a system of ductwork to distribute cool air throughout your home. Mini-split air conditioners transfer cool air from the outdoor condenser directly to the individual indoor air handlers. Each air handler is situated in a different room or zone and has its own thermostat. One outdoor unit can power one or more indoor units. Ductless AC can provide cool air for just one room or for an entire house.
What Makes Ductless Air Conditioners so Energy-Efficient?
Ductless AC lets you cool a room only when you're using it. You don’t have to cool the whole house just to feel cool in the kitchen. Cool air can be reduced in rooms that aren't being used. This customized design can significantly slash your electric bills.
These systems have inverter-driven compressors that reduce energy costs even more. These compressors calculate exactly how much cool air is needed at any given time and adjust output to precisely match the need. This technology cuts costs. It also delivers consistent indoor comfort without the uncomfortable blasts of cold air and uneven cooling experienced with central AC.
Advantages of Mini-Split AC Over Central Air Conditioners
In the average home, up to 30% of conditioned air exits your ductwork through leaks and cracks. Leaky ducts can inflate your energy costs significantly. Ductless systems deliver cool air directly from the outdoor unit to the air handlers in each room. No cool air is lost in transit.
Ductwork can harbor a variety of airborne toxins. These particles range from pet dander and dust mites to bacteria and viruses. As cool air passes through the ducts, it absorbs these toxins and blows them into your home all day long. Indoor air pollution can cause headaches, breathing difficulties, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, and other unwanted symptoms.
