Though Ductless split HVAC systems have been popular in other parts of the world for many years, U.S. consumers are just starting to appreciate their many benefits. These units provide targeted cooling and heating. They’re often used where conventional HVAC systems would be impractical or too expensive to use. How the Units Work Conventional HVAC systems are often inflexible, complicated and unwieldy. Most buildings need redesigning to accommodate the complex air distribution network. The ductwork usually degrades the equipment’s performance due to inaccurate sizing, leakage and accumulation of debris. Ductless units eliminate the need for registers and ductwork. Each unit has all the components needed to heat or cool a specific room. A ceiling/wall mounted cabinet houses the indoor fan coil with a separate condensing unit set outdoors. Removing the ductwork gives the engineers a chance to expand the building’s design. Ductless air handlers placed in strategic locations also reduces the noise caused by moving air, reduces energy consumption and increases comfort. The equipment can be installed in a short time. Such units are suitable for garage and basement conversions, media rooms and recording studios. In whole-house applications, a single condenser can be connected to multiple air handlers with compatible...
