Ductless Air Conditioners

Mitsubishi Ductless Air ConditioningAt the most basic level, ductless AC is one outdoor unit (a compressor, condenser coil, and fan) and one indoor unit (evaporator coil and fan) connected with copper tubing and electrical wiring.

With one outdoor unit you can also install multiple indoor units in rooms throughout your home. There are several styles of indoor units available, and installation only requires a hole in the wall for the wiring and refrigerant line, making ductless AC systems among the easiest and most versatile systems to install.

  • High wall units mount directly to an interior wall quickly
  • Console units work for rooms where wall mounting isn’t possible or desirable
  • In-ceiling units are an example of a ducted unit which is hidden from view if ceiling space allows
  • Cassette units can be mounted directly to the ceiling surface

Outdoor units can be strategically placed to minimize noise heard in living spaces or from patios or outdoor gathering spaces. Narrow cabinets make installation possible in small outdoor spaces or on small lots.

Reasons to Choose Ductless AC

  • Cool a room added to an existing home
  • Cool a space converted into living space, like a basement, attic, or garage
  • Preserve integrity of an older home without space for ductwork or vents
  • Preserve décor of indoor spaces with low-profile unit
  • Add cooling power to a room with existing air conditioner and/or uneven temperatures

Conventional Air Conditioners 13 to 21 SEER

Carrier Infinity 19In a split-system central air conditioner, an outdoor metal cabinet contains the condenser and compressor, and an indoor cabinet contains the evaporator. In many split-system air conditioners, this indoor cabinet also contains a furnace or the indoor part of a heat pump. The air conditioner’s evaporator coil is installed in the cabinet or main supply duct of this furnace or heat pump. If your home already has a furnace but no air conditioner, a split-system is the most economical central air conditioner to install.

A higher SEER rating means greater energy efficiency. The minimum standard SEER rating is 13 for air conditioners. Most modern air conditioners have a SEER that ranges from 13 to 21. ENERGY STAR® qualified central air conditioners must have a SEER rating of 14.5 to qualify.
