How Does Ductless Air Conditioning Work?
The summer humidity is back in Nashville, Tennessee, and that has many homeowners in the area rethinking how they air condition their homes. We often hear questions like, “How can I better control indoor humidity?” and “How can I keep that notoriously hot room cool and comfortable?”
For the ultimate indoor comfort this summer, now’s the time to consider ductless air conditioning. Ductless air conditioning uses indoor mini-splits (also known as mini-split heat pumps) to provide energy efficient cooling to specific rooms or areas inside your home. Here’s a brief look at how ductless air conditioning works — and what it can do for your home.
How Ductless Air Conditioning Works
A ductless air conditioning system uses an outdoor unit and one or more connected indoor units to provide your home with energy efficient cooling (and heating). Each indoor unit cools your home by pulling warm air out of the room and converting it to cool air via a ductless evaporator coil and refrigerant. It uses a similar, but reverse process to keep your home warm in the winter. Because each indoor unit connected directly to the outdoor unit via refrigerant lines, no ductwork is involved.
With a ductless AC system, you’ll experience instant comfort anywhere you choose to have an indoor mini-split unit installed — whether that’s in your main living area or a bedroom. Install one indoor unit in your home to support your existing HVAC system, or install multiple indoor units for a whole-home air conditioning solution.
The Benefits of Ductless Air Conditioning
When you install one or more ductless mini-splits in your home, you can expect a wide range of benefits.
Impressive Energy Savings
Perhaps most remarkable about ductless air conditioning is their energy efficiency. Ductless systems avoid the inefficiencies associated with leaky ductwork, meaning they can help conserve as much 30% more energy. Ductless systems also provide heating in the winter, so you can enjoy the energy savings year-round!
Improved Indoor Air Quality
Many ductless air conditioning systems come with advanced multi-stage filtration and deodorizing filters to eliminate airborne contaminants and odors.
Ductless air conditioning systems are also remarkably quiet, operating at a noise level comparable to a whisper.
Because there is no ductwork to retrofit, installing a ductless air conditioning system is fast and simple for an HVAC expert.
