What is a Ductless Mini Spit Air Conditioner?

A ductless air conditioner or mini split is of course, an air conditioner without  ductwork. The deletion of ductwork is a huge savings in labor and material. A mini split is a split system. A split air conditioning system means that the condenser is split away from the evaporator coil. The condenser is the unit that is located outside of the home. The evaporator coil is the unit that is located inside the home. The condenser contains the compressor and fan motor. Whereas the inside unit also contains blower motor.

Why Choose a Mini Split?

Many people choose a mini split if they have made an addition their home. If their air conditioner was sized properly for their home, adding ductwork to the new addition from their current air conditioner is not usually an option. That’s where a mini split comes in. Instead of installing another central air conditioner, mini split is the perfect choice. Home additions, basements, attic rooms, and areas that need more cooling or heating are excellent areas to choose a mini split.

Central Air Conditioner vs. Mini Split

A mini split is much more efficient than a central air conditioner. A big disadvantage of a central air conditioner is that it is cooling or heating rooms that may not be in use. Another disadvantage is central air conditioners have ductwork. Think of a hot 140 degree attic baking that ductwork. When the air comes on that ductwork can be warm, making the unit less efficient. A ductless mini split system will not lose this efficiency.

Window Unit vs. Ductless Mini Split.

Why not just get a window unit? The main advantage of a mini split is noise reduction. A window unit has all components in one place. That includes the noisy compressor. The mini split greatly reduces noise because the noisy compressor is split away from the evaporator coil.

Another advantage of the mini split is that it is usually installed high up on a wall which does not block the view from a window. The room looks nicer as does the view. Additionally, if there is a fire, the window unit blocks escape.

Mini Split Heating

Mini Split heating is also an important consideration. The systems are offered with or without heating. Choosing units without heating would depend on personal decisions such as where you live, when you would be using the room or rooms that the mini split would be servicing and other such considerations.

When choosing the heating option, which is recommended, mini splits have excellent heat pumps. A heat pump is actually air conditioning in reverse. Air conditioners do not cool the air, they remove heat from the air. The heat that is removed from the air is then moved outside via the outside condensing unit.

A heat pump in heating mode removes heat from the air outside air and puts it in your home. There is actually heat in the cold air outside. It’s much more cost effective to move heat than it is to create heat which is why a heat pump is so efficient. Additionally, as was pointed out earlier, there is no ductwork involved that will lose efficiency.
