Ductless systems are becoming increasingly popular HVAC alternatives for residences. If you’re interested in a ductless AC system, Allied Air Conditioning and Heating are here to help. Check out some of the benefits of ductless mini-split air conditioners and how these systems work.

How Does a Ductless Air Conditioner Work?

Ductless air conditioning is a system of one or more indoor wall mounted fan coil modules connected by refrigerant lines to a single outdoor compressor unit. During the summer, the outdoor compressor unit removes indoor heat and humidity by circulating it across a cold indoor coil then rejecting it through the outside compressor unit. This results in hot air discharging from the outdoor unit and cold air blowing from the indoor fan coil module that keeps you cool and comfortable.

Most ductless systems can provide heat as well by reversing this cycle where warm air blows from inside the module and cold air blows from the outside compressor unit. This is commonly referred to as a “heat pump”. These systems cool your home with amazing targeted efficiency and without a duct system in place that can also supplement heating your home.

Advantages of Ductless HVAC

Compared to traditional cooling systems, there are many advantages of using a ductless AC system, such as

  • Energy Efficiency: Duct systems lose about 20 to 30% of energy, especially in older homes. Ductless systems conserve more power, and there’s no risk of air leaks. Additionally, the variable speed inverter compressor adjusts to the cooling demands of the home instead of turning on and off. That way, you use less energy to cool your home without facing unexpectedly high energy bills later.
  • Integrated Zoning: With multiple indoor units you control the temperature for each room. Everyone can stay comfortable based on everyone’s desired temperatures without overworking the air conditioner.
  • Durability: Since there are no air ducts, there’s no risk of clogs, breaks, or leaks. Your ductless AC unit lasts longer, avoiding costly repairs or upkeep.
  • Peace of Mind: Rather than face excessive energy or maintenance costs with traditional air conditioners, you can expect hassle-free performance all year. Ductless HVAC systems are quiet, so you can unwind at home while staying cool and comfortable.
