             Are you trying to figure out what ductless mini-splits are?  Would you like to know if they are a viable option for your home in Albuquerque, NM?  You are in the right place.  The easiest way to understand ductless mini-split air conditioning systems is to compare them with a traditional central air conditioning system. To do this effectively, we should briefly review the essential details of how a typical central air conditioning system works.

             A conventional central air conditioning system relies on ductwork. Whenever your thermostat detects that your home is warmer than desired, it causes your air conditioning system to activate a fan that pulls the warm air into your home’s ductwork. Once inside the air ducts, the warm air is directed to pass across an evaporator coil.  The evaporator coil draws the heat out of the warm air and stores it in refrigerant which is being continuously circulated through a series of lines.  These lines run back and forth between the evaporator unit and a condenser (usually located on the side of the building or on the roof).  The condenser causes the stored heat to be released outside of your home.  Once the heat is released, the refrigerant is then sent back to the evaporator unit so that it can continue to absorb heat from the air via the evaporator coil.   After air passes over the evaporator coil, it has been cooled, so it is then redirected through the ductwork in your home and back into its rooms.

             Now that we understand the basics of how a conventional AC system operates, it will be much easier to understand the benefits of a ductless mini-split system in comparison.  Check out the article in the next section, just below, to learn more about the characteristics and key benefits of ductless mini-split air conditioning systems to help yourself determine whether they are a good choice for your home in Albuquerque, NM.

Key Features & Benefits of Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Systems

Mini-Splits don’t rely on ductwork.

A Ductless Mini-Split is a small, self-contained unit that combines the functionality of ductwork, blower fans, and evaporator units into a very compact space.  It draws the warm air in, removes the heat, and then sends the cooled air back out into the room where it is located.

Mini-Splits can target specific areas of your home

Because Mini-Splits are compact units, they can be used to control the level of comfort in a specified area.  You can use a Ductless Mini-Split to manage temperatures from one room to the next rather than only being able to set single temperature for the entire home.

Mini-Splits are versatile

Ductless Mini-Splits can be used as a standalone air conditioning solution, or they can be integrated as part of a hybrid system to supplement the existing air conditioning system that you already have at your home in Albuquerque, NM.

Mini-Splits can be installed quickly and easily

Although it is recommended that a qualified professional perform installation of a mini-split AC unit in your Albuquerque, NM home, the installation itself is relatively simple and can be completed quickly.  Mini-splits air conditioners only require a single hole to be drilled in order to connect them to your home’s outside systems (condenser unit and refrigerant lines).

Mini-Splits are quiet

The power required to move air through an entire system of ducts is considerable.  Mini-splits contain all of the necessary mechanisms to process warm air internally.  But, they aren’t loud.  Because ductless mini-splits are self-contained and duct-free, and only need to process air within a given area,  passing the air through the unit doesn’t require the same large, noisy equipment that would be necessary to push the air through all of the ductwork in your Albuquerque home.

Mini-Splits are user-friendly and highly customizable

It’s hot in Albuquerque, NM.  So, we certainly hope that you know how to operate a thermostat!  If you can, then you can expect to easily operate any ductless mini-split air conditioning system.  Most units are programmable for a wide variety of functions, but they are no more difficult to use than a traditional air conditioning systems thermostat.

Mini-Splits incorporate powerful filtration technology

In addition to containing the conventional air filtration systems used in traditional central air conditioners, ductless mini-splits AC unites may also be equipped with advanced ionic filtration systems.  These electrically charged filtration systems enable the mini-split to remove additional contaminants from the air more effectively (such as dander, pollen, pet hairs, etc.) before returning the cooled air in the rooms of your home in Albuquerque, NM.

Mini-Splits are energy-efficient

Because mini-splits are used to target specific areas, you don’t have to worry about air leaking out of the system before it reaches the places its supposed to be going.  Furthermore, in a home equipped with multiple units, you can configure ductless mini-split units to manage the temperature in areas that you are currently using, while deactivating them in areas where no one is present.  This means that ductless mini-splits are a great way to control energy usage and reduce electricity costs.

Mini-Splits are long-lasting and easy to maintain and service

Mini-splits may last for up to 5 years longer than a traditional air conditioning system.  They are compact, and because the systems required for them to operate are all self-contained, they can be easily accessed for maintenance and service purposes.
