With a Mini Split System
A ductless air conditioner, also known as a ductless mini split system, offers an array of possibilities and solutions, which many Northern Californians are tapping into. A ductless AC unit is different than a traditional split system because it comes in various shapes and sizes and doesn’t use ducts inside your walls. A mini split system fits in almost any space, and the configurations are almost endless.
A mini split system installation is a perfect way to cool an older home that wasn’t built to include ductwork in the walls. You might be downsizing a larger home and you only want to focus your cooling energy in one or two rooms. A mini split system can do that, too, with minimal visual impact. The same goes for a room addition or adding a boost to a room that’s too hot or too cold.
The Inner Workings of Mini Split Systems
Mini split systems are configured with either one or more indoor units powered by a single-inverter-controlled, variable-speed outdoor compressor unit. The inverter compressor delivers maximum comfort by speeding up or slowing down to adjust the cooling capacities to meet specific needs. By continuously working, the mini split system doesn’t waste energy starting up like traditional HVAC systems. Moreover, a ductless AC system is efficient since there is no energy loss in the ducts.
Installing a mini split system is relatively quick because there is no ductwork involved. The only requirement is a small hole in the wall for refrigerant tubing and electrical wiring. The indoor unit usually is mounted on a wall.
One indoor unit connected to the outdoor compressor is called a single-zone system. This installation takes anywhere from three to seven hours. A multi-zone mini split system installation combines the outdoor unit powering up to five indoor units. This allows you to set separate temperature zones in different rooms.
