What Is A Ductless Air Conditioner System?
A ductless air conditioner, also called a mini-split system, is an ideal heating and air conditioning solution for a space that isn’t connected to a central heating or cooling system. The mini-split ductless system provides heating and cooling for a single zone with reliable comfort using one indoor unit, an outdoor unit and a remote control.
A ductless mini split air conditioner takes up very little room inside your Land O’ Lakes home. It is referred to as mini split or a ductless split system because of its two main components:
• A compressor unit that is installed outside your home on a concrete slab
• An indoor unit that contains a fan, which is installed near the ceiling on an exterior wall in the area to be cooledduct
Copper refrigerant lines connect the two units through holes that are drilled and run through the wall. Electricity is supplied to the indoor unit from the outdoor unit, so no additional wiring is need in that room.
There are several advantages of having a ductless air conditioner.
1. Save Money
One of the biggest reasons why Lutz homeowners switch to ductless cooling and heating is overall cost savings. Multi-split systems allow homeowners to create “zones” in their Lutz home, which means they no longer have to cool or heat rooms that aren’t occupied. They can target the rooms most occupied and focus the energy usage into the main rooms, rather than cool the entire home.
2. Flexible Solutions
Ductless cooling and heating, also referred to as split systems, multi-split systems, or split ductless systems, offer Trinity home and business owners a cost-effective way to replace inefficient window units, space heaters and electric baseboard heaters. They can be installed in home additions, new construction, condominiums and apartments, or to improve temperature control in specific rooms.
3. Improved Indoor Air Quality
With traditional HVAC systems in Trinity, fl, air ducts must be professionally cleaned on a regular basis, and even after cleaning, dust and allergens are left behind. Ductless systems, on the other hand, offer multi-stage filtration that can drastically reduce dust, bacteria, pollen, allergens and other particulates in the air.

4. Lower Carbon Footprint
Because ductless cooling and heating systems follow Energy Star guidelines, they are far more energy efficient than the minimum standards set forth by the U.S. federal government. Improved efficiency saves money, of course, but it also helps reduce your total carbon output. In addition, ductless systems use a refrigerant called R410A, which is known for its zero ozone depletion potential. This means the system will have less impact on the environment throughout its lifecycle.
5. Quick and Easy to Install
Installing a traditional, ducted system can take several days. Ductless systems are less invasive to install, and can typically be up and running in as little as one day. Multi-split systems run on small pipes that require a mere three-inch hole so homeowners don’t need to worry about rebuilding walls or ceilings around ductwork.
Ductless cooling and heating systems are energy efficient, environmentally friendly and completely customizable. They offer homeowners the ability to cool and heat specific zones of their home to the exact temperature they desire and provide consistent year-round comfort.
