One of the easiest ways to add a cooling system to an existing home is by installing a ductless mini split air conditioning system. Unlike central air conditioners, these systems do not require a duct system and they use only a small conduit to connect the indoor and outdoor portions. Today’s ductless mini split systems are extremely efficient and offer many great innovations and features.
In many conventional air conditioners, the compressor runs at a single speed, and can only switch on when the temperature becomes too high, and switch off when the desired temperature is met. This can be inefficient and cause excess wear on the system’s compressor and other components, while creating unnecessary temperature swings between cycles. Variable-speed inverter compressors can run at any speed, allowing the system to adjust the cooling capacity precisely to the current conditions, which increases the system’s efficiency and keeps your home comfortable regardless of the temperature outside.
Variable-Speed System Fans
Like the variable speed-compressor, variable speed fans on the condenser and evaporator coils allow the system to better adjust the cooling capacity to current conditions, and they reduce the energy usage of the system. In addition, when the evaporator fan is allowed to run at slower speeds, it makes the system much quieter and reduces noise levels in the room where the indoor unit is installed.
Efficient Coil Designs
Specially designed coils maximize the heat-transfer surface and increase the efficiency of the transfer process. Improved R-410 refrigerant also helps increase the efficiency of the coils, while protecting the environment.
Improved Control Systems
Efficient control systems use multiple sensors to detect current conditions and adjust the output accordingly. Advanced remote controls allow you to control your ductless mini split air conditioning system from a distance, and some systems can even be controlled remotely from the Internet.
With all these advances, today’s ductless mini split air conditioning systems are about twice as efficient as older models. To learn more about mini split systems, contact our team at Conditioned Air today. We serve Southwest Florida, including the Sarasota, Ft. Myers and Naples areas.
