It may not seem like it, but spring is right around the corner in Springdale, AR. A ductless mini-split AC system is far more economical than window AC units and will save you money throughout the hot seasons. Deciding which ductless system to buy depends on your home setup and your preferences.
What Is a Ductless Mini-Split AC System?
Ductless mini-split systems consist of two main sections. There is an outdoor condenser unit that sends refrigeration lines into your walls to indoor air handlers. The air handlers move cool air into your home and can exist in multiple zone setups to allow individual control.
What Is a Zone?
Unlike standard AC units that treat your home as a single entity, ductless mini-split AC systems use as many air handlers as you need to cool various areas of your home. A zone defines the space covered by an individual air handler. Each zone is set to the most comfortable temperature by those in the space or shut off when it is not in use.
Who Can Use These Systems?
These systems came about to cover homes that are difficult or impossible to set up with standard AC. The unique two-stage design can install into any home but are best suited to homes with no ducting or have new additions where ducting is impractical. They are fully customizable to be as efficient as possible.
What System Do You Pick?
Trane has many choices with several zoning options. For each zone, you must determine square footage, the normal level of occupancy, type of use and its exposure to sunlight. The best method for designing your ductless system is to have a professional come out and do a load test to determine exactly what you will need for maximum comfort and lowest monthly cost.
