You’re thinking of buying a ductless air conditioner in Williamsville, NY, which means you’re probably aware of how versatile and efficient these systems are. A mini-split, as it’s often called, is basically a heat pump but without the ductwork. With a smaller cooling capacity, it’s ideal for a single room; many homeowners have one installed in their room addition or in an outbuilding like a tool shed or garage.
Others, knowing that one compressor can hook up eight air handlers at the most, use ductless AC to cool virtually their entire home. There are many possible arrangements you can make with mini-splits. And it won’t be difficult to install them.
Williamsville Ductless Air Conditioner Basics
Let’s briefly go over the installation process. Mini-splits include an outdoor compressor, an indoor air handler, and a refrigerant line that can extend as far as 50 feet to connect them. This already gives you some flexibility as to where you should place the bulky compressor. The air handler is a sleek, compact device that can go on the wall of any room. You also have the option of hanging it from the ceiling. The piping requires only a 3-inch hole in the wall to enter.
Besides ease of installation, there are myriad benefits in choosing a ductless air conditioner in Williamsville, NY:
- Energy-efficient performance
- Quiet, smooth operation for decades
- Features like directional airflow
- The possibility of multi-zone cooling
Mini-splits do their job with a minimum of energy waste since there are no ducts for the cool air to seep out from. This can significantly cut down your monthly bill. Besides that, ductless systems last a long time — sometimes 30 years.
The main draw, though, is the system’s ability to provide you with multiple temperature zones in the same home, each one determined by the occupant’s comfort level and by whether or not the room is occupied. After all, each air handler comes with its own thermostat. Mini-splits also offer remote access to the temperature controls so that you can adjust the temperature in preparation for waking up or for returning from work.
