Your home has no ducts, and you don’t want to go through the hassle of installing them. Or maybe the age of your home prevents you from installing any. In that case, you can still stay cool during the summer with a ductless AC unit called a mini-split.
Cool One Room or Several
The air handler for a mini-split cools only one room, but since you can connect up to eight air handlers to one compressor, you could still achieve whole-home cooling. You could also cool the spaces central AC can’t reach, such as your garage or work shed.
The way a mini-split works is simple. Refrigerant runs from the compressor to the air handlers, absorbing heat from each space and returning to the compressor to release that heat to the outdoors. Now, let’s look at the benefits:
- Energy-efficient performance
- Long life span (30 years if well-maintained)
- Variable-speed operation
- Multi-zone cooling
- Features like directional airflow
Save Money in the Long Run
Ducted ACs will often lose cool air through cracks and holes in the vents, but you can sidestep this issue with a mini-split. Though mini-splits are costly, they more than pay for themselves. By keeping the AC running and minimizing the number of hard start-ups, variable-speed technology can contribute to the system’s durability.
Then there’s the fact that each air handler has a thermostat. Cool only those occupied rooms, and you’ll definitely see a reduction in your monthly bill. Also, use the directional airflow feature so that the air doesn’t blow onto the walls, where it will seep out of your home more quickly.
