What is a Ductless AC System? How Does it Work?

Ductless air conditioning systems are simple systems that connect individual room devices to an outside compressor. Evaporator coils chilled by refrigerant are found in the interior unit.

Hot air from the room flows over the coils and thus is captured. The refrigerant then transports all of the heat from within to the outside unit.

A ductless air conditioning system is better in comparison to conventional conditioners because they need less invasive setups, fit in better with the space, are quieter, and are more eco-friendly.

But how is this possible without ducts?

The interior units are all linked to a single outside compressor, which extracts the hot air from the home. After the main unit is in place, you may select from a variety of interior unit choices to match the personality and requirements of each space.

The Benefits of Ductless Systems

The simplicity of installation is the greatest benefit of these setups over conventional air conditioning systems.

A house without existing ductwork necessitates the installation of new ducting, which is a costly and time-consuming process. There are many additional benefits as well, such as:

  • You have complete control over the temperature across each room.
  • Heat pumps are used in mini-splits, which can both warm and chill a room.
  • Energy-efficient mini-split units do not lose air due to duct seepage. In fact, ductwork is responsible for over 15% of energy loss in a typical home.
  • Instead of closing down the whole system, inverter compressors adapt to the room’s requirements.
  • Silent and unobtrusive existence in a room.

Cons of Ductless Systems

Of course, ductless systems aren’t without their flaws. Split System AC’s, like any other alternative, can have their drawbacks. Ductless units are much more costly than window or floor units.

Split Systems are bulky and are often only generally white or beige. Ductless systems need filter maintenance regularly to remove debris.
