Ductless Air Conditioning
"Let us Help You Decide on the Optimal Ductless A/C Unit for Your Home with a Free In-Home Quote"
During the summer, temperatures rise and so do costs of residential and commercial cooling systems. Obviously, one of the easiest ways to maintain a cool level indoors during warmer climates is to use an air conditioner (AC). Historically, North Americans typically have their ACs running at full blast around the spring and summer seasons, but since energy rates are on the rise, as well as economic concerns and shrinking budgets, this is making many people more frugal than ever. Central air conditioning is typically done with either single window units or outdoor units that are attached to a series of ductwork inlets.
Ductless air conditioning systems (sometimes called "split-air conditioning") have adapted to modern living, utilized current technology and have made the job of cooling indoors much easier, convenient and efficient. Ductless air conditioners allow the cooling systems to extend cool air to other parts of the residence in a very efficient and affordable way, even when the residence is not equipped with a central duct system. These systems are becoming the top choice for people who are replacing their old expensive, bulky, often unsafe and noisy window air conditioning units.

Ductless air conditioners are also a very good choice for those building additions to their existing residence or individuals living in apartment complexes, where installing ductwork is not feasible or affordable. A ductless air conditioner can be installed very quickly without having to open up walls to retrofit extra ductwork distribution or compromise structure integrity. Ductless AC systems are also a lot more attractive, sophisticated looking and affordable, as well as many other benefits attached, such as:
- Less complicated ductless AC installation.
- More affordable than traditional systems.
- Quiet operation/noise pollution reduction.
- Energy efficient.
- Secure and safe -- only a two to three inch-sized hole is drilled for the conduit from the outside, as opposed to window units, which makes the residence vulnerable to intrusion.
- Potential governmental rebate
- Individual cool air distribution.
- Less bulk and unsightliness.
Ductless Air Conditioners Installation

Though ductless air conditioner installation doesn't require ductwork retrofitting, they have two main components that are similar to central air conditioning systems; the indoor air handler and the outdoor compressor or condenser. Refrigerant is pumped from the outdoor condenser through a coil encased in special tubing and into the indoor air handler unit that is typically mounted above the room on the interior wall. The indoor unit houses the cooling coil, a fan (or fans), and evaporator blower control components. Systems can sometimes have multiple air handlers connected to one condenser.
A remote-control thermostat controls and regulates the amount of cool air that enters into the residence. If multiple zones, or split-system handlers are being used in each room, the cool air of each handler can be controlled based on the separate temperature needs within each room. Though installation is a lot cheaper and simpler than installing a central duct air conditioning system, ductless air conditioning units require more advance installation than a portable AC window unit.

Ductless air conditioner maintenance is also an important preventive measure in order to reduce breakdowns and increase the life of the ductless air conditioner system. There are a variety of things that the owner can do themselves on an annual basis, but other maintenance factors might require a professional, such as:
- Overall ductless AC inspection.
- Air filter, belts, condensate pumps, supply air temperature and coil inspection and replacement if necessary.
- Check and recalibrate thermostat.
- Check condensate pan.
- Reapply lubricant to fans and bearings if necessary.
- Clean blower assembly.
- Calibrate temperature and safety controls.
- Check for gas and refrigerant leaks.
- Inspect ampere readings.
- Check electrical connections and tighten if necessary.
- Flush out drain with co2.
Ductless air conditioner maintenance is important and you must inure that it's done properly.
