What is a Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner?

When it comes to an older home that has no ducts for its heating and cooling systems, often homeowners will opt for the ductless mini-split unit. This serves as a standalone way to heat or cool a room. It has two components to it, an outdoor unit that acts as a compressor and an indoor hanging unit that expels the air into a room. In this post, let's cover how exactly this type of unit works and what it can do for your home.

The Function of a Ductless Mini-Split

Like we mentioned above, a ductless mini-split functions to heat or cool an area within a home that doesn't have any ductwork. The mini-split may be used in older homes, which do not often the option of having centralized heating and cooling options. This mini-split has a component outside that works as your condenser and the indoor unit serves to handle the air delivery. There is a conduit within the unit that serves to heat or cool the air before then pushing it inward from the outdoor element.

Why This Works For Your Home

This type of system really excels when your home has zoning issues with heating and cooling. Zoning issues are often caused by the extreme variety in room size in your home - like a living room that's huge and a parlor that's tiny - or if your pre-existing heating and cooling system cannot handle the complete size of your home. Additionally, this works for homes that are divided into multiple living areas. This can include an older home that's been separated into individual apartments and such. With the history of Georgia, some older homes are bound to have this division or have zoning issues. Consider a ductless mini-split if you have one of the situations we mentioned above; it's an efficient way to heat and cool a room without breaking the bank.
