Advantages of Ductless Mini Splits

Why you should consider getting ductless mini splits for your home


Columbus Mini SplitsMost homeowners enjoy the cool and comfortable environment that air conditioning provides, especially during summers with unbearable and sometimes dangerous heat. Many homes have heating systems with duct work systems that allow central air conditioning units to be easily piggybacked onto the existing work. Other homes that are heated by other sources such as hot water and other radiant devices lack the duct work that needs to exist to install a traditional central air system. Ductless mini split air conditioning systems are a great choice for homeowners that own heating systems without centralized ducts.

Mini split air conditioning systems consist of two units. One unit is installed on an interior wall of the house and delivers cold air into the room. Another unit is placed on the outer wall of the home and contains the compressor and condenser units. The two units are joined by a conduit that houses the power cable, drain, refrigerant tubing and suction tubing. Air temperature is controlled by a thermostat.

Unless a homeowner wishes to have extensive duct work installed in order to obtain central air conditioning, the mini split air conditioning system is a wise choice. The mini split allows for better home security than a window unit. Window units are easily removed by potential intruders and are practically an invitation to home invasion. In addition, the mini split unit is a permanent fixture and there is no need to remove and replace the units in the winter and summer. Window units provide intermittent blasts of cold air, making room temperature difficult to control. Mini split systems are controlled by a thermostat that helps regulate room temperature at a comfortable level. Mini split air conditioning systems are an ideal choice for cooling home additions that lack duct work and other portions of the house, like the attic, that are not usually used as living space.
