Ductless air conditioning is one of the least expensive HVAC system options used to provide a permanent air conditioning system for homeowners. If you do not have ductwork installed, or you have a room without air conditioning, ductless air conditioners are one of the best options on the market. Older homes have baseboard heaters or radiators, which can lead to inconsistent heat and also leads to expensive utility bills.
How Ductless Air Conditioners Work
Using a ductless air conditioner is a great way to avoid installing air conditioners in each window, or to pay for expensive central air conditioning costs. Ductless HVAC systems are designed to take up a small amount of room in your home. A ductless air conditioning system consists of two components:
- A compressor unit installed outside the home on a concrete slab
- An indoor unit that contains a fan, which is installed on the ceiling on an exterior wall of the home
Copper refrigerant lines connect the units through holes that are drilled and go through the wall. Electricity is used to power the indoor unit from the outdoor unit, which means there will not be a need for additional electrical wiring.
Keeping The Room Cool
A ductless HVAC system is quiet when it is turned on, in fact, most people don’t even hear the unit circulating air. The ductless system is similar to how a central air conditioning system works, but it doesn’t require ductwork to move air throughout the home.
The outdoor compressor unit will pump and cool the system’s refrigerant through the copper lines and into the indoor unit where it can be distributed throughout the home through the fan inside the interior unit. Cold air is heavier than warm air, which allows the cold air to drop in a room, keeping it consistently cool through the hot Utah summers. Warm air is retrieved through the indoor unit and removed along with condensation to the compressor of the exterior unit.
