What Is A Ductless, Mini-Split Air Conditioner?

With special applications for residential, commercial and other building types, ductless mini-split air conditioners are especially useful as an add-on for homes or small apartments where ductwork is difficult to install or not an option. Energy Saver explains that mini split units are similar to central systems in that they have both an outdoor compressor and indoor handling unit. To link the outdoor and indoor units, mini splits have a conduit that holds the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing and the condensate drain. With easy installation, when compared to other space heating alternatives, ductless mini split units can be a simple solution for the right space.

When it comes to heating and cooling specific rooms, mini split units provide a great advantage due to their small size and flexibility. As an example, imagine that a particular model has four indoor handling units that are connected to one outdoor unit. Each indoor unit can be stationed in different zones or rooms (up to 4, in this case). Each space contains its own thermostat, allowing for the air to be adjusted according to when a person is home or occupying a space. What’s more is that with no ductwork, mini splits help occupants dodge the energy losses that are associated with central forced air systems. Thus, mini split units cut down on energy usage and help occupants save money.

Finally, for those concerned about aesthetics, mini split units provide multiple options that work with any interior design. As mentioned, the units are relatively small with a profile of about seven inches deep and a sleek appearance. With several options for placement, the indoor air handlers may be mounted flush against a drop ceiling or even hung on a wall. For those that are suspended from the ceiling or mounted in high places, a remote control can be used to turn the unit on or off.

Without question, mini split air conditioning units serve a special purpose for those that need quality space heating with a new-age technology and appearance.

Chris Aber

I have recommended this company to everyone. They have a very professional staff, that are timely as well as respectful of your time and your home. Prices are very reasonable and the quality and service are amazing.

Robert Brant

They came out right away and properly fixed my AC problem a month after the original AC company came out. Very professional and honest. They could have charged me double (which is what the original company did) and I would not have questioned it and would have gladly paid it. THANKS!

I generally don't post but will make an exception. ClimateSmith is the best HVAC contractor I've used in the 20+ years I've been in Atlanta. They installed a complete heat pump system and ductwork for a very challenging room to cool. Dependable, fair, honest, knowledgeable..highly recommended!
