You Don’t Need Ductwork to Cool Your Home

We’ve told you about how a high velocity air conditioning system allows you to cool your home using very small, flexible air ducts. What we haven’t talked about in a while, though, is the fact that you actually don’t need to use air ducts of any kind to enjoy a whole-house cooling performance. When you use a ductless mini split system in Georgetown, you can enjoy a number of great benefits that even the best split central air conditioning system cannot compete with. Just remember that these benefits will only be available to you when you schedule your ductless mini split services with skilled, trained professionals.

How It Works, And How It Benefits You

Ductless air conditioning does not use ductwork, obviously. So how is cooled air distributed throughout a house? Via individual blower units.

These units are installed throughout the home, and connect to an outdoor unit much like that in a more traditional system. The blower/air handler units contain the evaporator coils needed to remove heat from the air. This heat is absorbed by evaporating refrigerant in the coil.

This refrigerant makes its way outdoors via the refrigerant lines connecting the indoor and outdoor units, where it dissipates into the air. A simple conduit connects the indoor and outdoor components, containing power, refrigerant, and drainage lines. Typically, an outdoor unit will support up to 4 blowers.

The benefits of this type of operation are many. You can protect indoor air quality and efficiency by eliminating the risk of faulty, leaking ductwork. Plus, you can maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home, and heat pump technology allows these systems to both heat and cool your home. This means that you can live more comfortably while actually cutting back on your heating and cooling costs.
