Split System Air Conditioners

If you already have a furnace and are looking to add air conditioning to your home, or are looking for a ductless solution for individual rooms,  a split air conditioner may be your best bet.  A split air conditioner usually contains two different units—one that’s located outside of your home (which is usually the compressor and condenser), and one that’s located inside your home (which usually consists of an evaporator and a blower) to push cool air throughout your home.

There are two different types of split system air conditioners that are readily available—the traditional system that connects to your existing ducts, and a ductless mini split system for homes that don’t have existing ductwork, or are looking for a stylish, more economical option than installing a centralized air conditioner.

Traditional Split a/c Systems

 A traditional split a/c unit is usually utilized when there’s an existing furnace and ductwork in a home.

By splitting the condenser and compressor off and placing it outside your home, you reduce the noise inside the house significantly.

In addition, a split air conditioning installation tends to be less expensive than installing a packaged system. This can also be beneficial because finding a place to put the equipment when it’s all together can be difficult.

There are also a multitude of options for split air conditioning units, allowing for more customization and it helps to ensure your home is sized properly.

 Split systems are very common, and one of the most cost-effective ways to install centralized air in your home.

 

Ductless Mini Split Systems

Ductless Mini-Split Air ConditionerThis system is a good option if you don’t want to install ductwork because the units are mounted high on the wall in individual rooms you want to cool, and are connected with an external unit that cools the air.

A mini split system is a more efficient way to cool a room than installing a window air conditioner.  These systems give you the ability to control which rooms you want to cool, and each individual room can be adjusted independently or even shut off.

Keep in mind that using multiple mini split systems to cool a whole home could be much more expensive than centralized air.
