How Ductless Split AC Systems Work
Ductless split AC systems are a unique home heating and cooling option popular for their energy efficiency. They also allow room-specific temperatures since each zone covered by a ductless AC unit is individually adjustable.
Ductless AC systems consist of two parts, an air handler inside your home and a condenser or heat pump outside. The component inside is usually wall-mounted or ceiling-mounted, pulling in the hot air from an individual room. The hot air passes over an evaporator that contains refrigerant, which pulls the heat energy out of the air and carries it in the tubing to the outside unit.
Refrigerant tubing runs alongside a power cable, and a drain line handles the condensation resulting from the air handler’s process. Finally, the refrigerant cools down in the condenser or heat pump outside, and the process can start again. In short, the heat inside your home dispenses outside. This procedure can also be reversed in order to provide heating to your home.
Benefits of Ductless AC
If you are considering installing a ductless AC in your home, there are many benefits to help you decide if this type of split AC works for you.
- Efficiency - Air processed by a ductless AC system does not spend time traveling through ducts and changing temperature, meaning the air stays warmer or cooler while using less energy. They also have internal thermostats to auto-monitor and adjust your home’s temperature.
- Zone Heating and Cooling - Up to 4 different rooms can have units connected to the outdoor condenser, and each one can be adjusted individually with a remote. Individual units mean every room with a unit can have a unique temperature.
- Aesthetic - Ductless AC units take up less interior space than large closet units and are quieter than other systems. As the name implies, ductless AC systems do not have ductwork, so you do not need as much interior space to house them.
- Expense - Since they are energy-efficient, the cost of heating or cooling your home will decrease the longer you use a ductless AC system. You also eliminate the need for ductwork maintenance, such as duct cleaning.
- Eco-Friendly - You can easily shut off heating or cooling to certain rooms in your home, thus using less energy. These systems also use a refrigerant that is safe for the ozone.
Since ductless split AC units do not pull air from outside, they do not introduce pollutants into your house, meaning your indoor air quality will be better. Ductless AC systems are a popular option while renovating since they do not require the timely and costly aspect of ductwork installation. A professional at Aire Serv of the Shenandoah Valley can help determine if a ductless system is a good fit for your home. We’ll even recommend additional services that work well alongside a ductless AC system, such as whole-house fans and air purification.
