Air Conditioning FAQ: What is a Ductless Mini Split?

Sometimes, during the hottest days of the cooling season, keeping your home comfortable can seem like a big challenge. Of course, if you are in the market for a new air conditioning system, the process of choosing an air conditioning system for installation in your home can seem like an even bigger challenge. While there are a number of different air conditioning systems on the market, there is always one that is best suited for your home and personal cooling habits. Working with a Riverside, CA air conditioning installation technician from Avis Air can help ensure you choose the right AC for your home.

One option that has grown in popularity over the years is a ductless mini split air conditioning system. Ductless mini splits feature an outdoor compressor unit, much like traditional central air conditioning systems. However, the way in which they deliver cooled air throughout your home is starkly different.

The outdoor components of a ductless mini split air conditioning system are connected directly to individual, wall mounted blowers within the home. A simple conduit containing refrigerant and power lines is all that is necessary to connect the indoor and outdoor components. These individual blowers cool rooms in your home directly, which eliminates the need for a forced air distribution system and the air ducts one would require.

There are many reasons that you may choose a ductless mini split installation in your home. If your home cannot accommodate the installation of bulky ductwork, then a ductless mini split system may be just the solution you’ve been looking for. You may simply want to avoid the installation costs of ductwork, or the energy loss commonly associated with them. Because the wall mounted blowers cool rooms directly, no energy can be wasted en route to the destination. Plus, this style of conditioned air distribution makes zone controlled cooling simple, helping you to boost efficiency further.
