Do you wish to install a ductless mini-split system in your Riverside, CA, home? Read on to understand how this type of HVAC system functions and the benefits it provides.
What’s a Ductless Mini-Split?
These HVAC systems are ideal for providing convenient and efficient heating and air conditioning. A ductless mini-split has an indoor air handler and an outdoor compressor/condenser. It also contains the conduit, which holds the suction tubing, power cable and refrigerant tubing.
The indoor and outdoor units work together to provide effective and efficient heating and air conditioning. They’re easy to install and offer flexibility in various residential and commercial applications.
Installing ductless mini-split systems in commercial and residential areas is easy in comparison to other HVAC systems. For example, your service technician will only need to connect the indoor and outdoor units using a conduit, which they insert in a 3-inch hole drilled in the wall. Since ductless mini-splits are less invasive to install, the service technician will only spend a few hours in your home, depending on the number of indoor air handlers you want.
Ductless mini-split systems don’t have ducts, so there’s no loss of energy through leaky ductwork. The mini-splits are smaller than conventional heating and cooling systems and consume less power. Ductless mini-splits allow you to create zones in your home, meaning you’ll only heat and cool occupied rooms. As a result, you cut your energy costs even more.
Interior Design Options
Thanks to a ductless mini-split system, you’ll have plenty of interior design options. You can choose to suspend the indoor air distribution units from the ceiling or your wall. Also, you can consult your service technician’s advice if you opt for ductless systems that stand on the floor.
Finally, modern ductless units are quiet, which makes your living environment more relaxing. The fans of the mini-split systems operate at lower speeds than traditional HVAC designs while at the same time offering excellent temperature control in your living space.
