Ductless AC systems (mini-split) are smaller units operating on less power that have the potential to save money. They may be an option if you have a smaller home with no pre-existing ducts. Mini-split units are primarily used in multifamily housing or as retrofit add-ons to houses with non-ducted systems.

Ductless systems have been used since the 1970s and comprise 80 to 80% of residential HVAC, making them a popular option. A typical household’s energy bill is around $1,900 annually, half of which goes to heating or cooling. So, installing mini-split systems will drastically reduce your expenses.

As a Florida homeowner or renter looking to minimize costs, you may consider ductless mini-split units to improve your cooling efficiency. Fairway Heating & Cooling HVAC experts have provided additional knowledge regarding ductless AC systems to help you decide whether they’re suitable for your home.

What Are Ductless AC Systems?

Ductless AC systems are ductless heating and cooling units containing an indoor air-handling unit and an outdoor compressor. The air handlers can be mounted to either the wall or the ceiling. A conduit housing the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and condensate drain links the outdoor and indoor units. Specifically, the indoor unit provides temperature control in a one-room area. 

Furthermore, these units reduce cycling losses, improve part-load control, and enhance humidity control by utilizing variable-speed compressors

There are two types of systems: single-zone and multi-zone. Single-zone units are efficient and cost-effective ways to control the temperature in one room, such as a bedroom or office space. In comparison, multi-zone systems consist of two more air handler units connected to a single outdoor compressor. Multi-zone units provide additional cooling control for homes with more space.
