Ductless air conditioning, also known as mini splits, is a great way to get all of the benefits of a central air conditioner but without having to get ductwork installed in your home. But how does this innovative type of air conditioning work? Here is a brief overview, and if you are interested in ductless air conditioning for your Woodbury home, give us a call!
A ductless air conditioning system is energy efficient and a great way to keep your home cool and comfortable during the summer months. These systems do not take up a lot of room in your home, and you don’t have to worry about removing them when the cold weather hits like you do with window units. Ductless air conditioning has two main components: the compressor unit and the indoor unit.
The compressor unit is installed outside of your home on a concrete slab, and the indoor unit is installed on an exterior wall in the room that it is meant to cool. This is the part that contains the fan that blows the cold air into your home. Copper refrigerant lines connect these two parts through small holes that are drilled and run through the wall that the indoor unit is installed on. The indoor unit gets its electricity through the compressor unit, so there isn’t a need for any additional wiring.
After you turn on your ductless air conditioning, it works just about the same way as a central air conditioning system but without the ductwork and other equipment that would have to be added if you had central air conditioning installed instead of ductless air conditioning.
The compressor unit pumps and cools the system’s refrigerant through those copper lines and into the indoor unit. The fan that is inside the indoor unit distributes the cold air into the room. The indoor unit is also what takes in the warm air from the room, and then it removes that warm air along with any condensation that has been collected. The air is then moved back to the compressor unit through the copper lines.
The beauty of ductless air conditioning is in its simplicity. You get all of the perks of central air in a budget-friendly and easy to install system. All you need to do is call in professionals like the ones at Aabbott Ferraro to install the system because it is definitely not a do it yourself job.
