Ductless mini split air conditioning units are now creating waves in the U.S. marketplace, although the technology has been in existence for some time. Despite the technological advances in the quality and cost associated with equipment utilized in the heating and cooling industries, in both residences and commercial organizations, these mini split units are still in demand.
Mini splits have been available for more than 60 years, and have gained popularity globally, especially in Asia. The units have been making a significant impact in North America, especially with the introduction of inverter technology.
Ductless mini split air conditioning units are especially designed heating and cooling equipment, which are simple to install as they do not require any ductwork. The units are also quite efficient, compact and quiet.
Consisting of two major components, the mini split system is simple to install. The first component is a compressor or condenser, which is installed outside of the home, and the second is an air handler, which should be installed on the inside, in the area that requires conditioning. A conduit containing electrical wires, refrigerant tubing and drain line, connects the two components, through a small hole in either the wall or ceiling.
The standard compressor, which had been used up until recently, was a rotary type. The thermostat dictates when the compressor should commence operation and run at full speed, until the temperature level required has been reached. The compressor then automatically shuts down, until initiated by the thermostat to begin operating again.
An inverter compressor however, operates differently. It runs at a gradual rate, and at various speeds, as it seeks to attain an efficient level of operation. It maintains a constant temperature by making incremental changes, and for the most part, runs on standby idle mode. By achieving extreme efficiency in heating and cooling, it is possible that they may qualify for government efficiency rebates.
