Why Choose A Ductless AC System?

Ductless air conditioning refers to a system in which a quiet air conditioner wall unit and an efficient outdoor unit are connected through a small hole in the wall. There’s no ductwork necessary, allowing for a cool, comfortable home without an expensive installation.

Ductless systems also have the option to act as heaters in the winter. Supplement the existing heat in your home with a ductless heat pump or count on the system exclusively for a warm, cozy home all winter long.

Ductless wall-mounted air conditioners are known for being quiet and efficient. The small design is unobtrusive and a fast installation gets the equipment up and running within a day or two. Depending on the size and number you choose, expect the almost silent unit to act as a small office air conditioner, inaudible air conditioner for a bedroom, or a comfort solution for your entire home.

Here’s an in-depth look at the many advantages of a ductless wall-mounted air conditioner and heater combination.

Energy Efficiency

Ductwork is an enemy to energy efficiency. Being the wrong size, having a poor layout or being leaky all contribute to poor energy efficiency. Fortunately, a Mitsubishi Electric ductless wall unit doesn’t rely on ductwork to bring conditioned air into your home or business. Since ductwork can cause up to a 40 percent drop in efficiency, this is good news.

Mitsubishi Electric ductless air conditioners boast some of the highest SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings in the industry. Choose a small office air conditioner with up to 27.2 SEER for exceptional comfort without the high monthly bills you might expect. Excellent heating efficiency also can save you up to 40 percent on your bills compared to an electric baseboard heating or a standard electric furnace.

Equipment with a high enough SEER rating may qualify for an energy efficient air conditioner tax credit. This helps lessen the purchase price, making the investment more feasible.

Effective at Lower Temperatures

Traditional heat pumps that send air through ductwork suffer from decreased efficiency when the temperature drops below 32 degrees. Ductless systems provide consistent heat, even when the outside temperature drops to or below 14 degrees.

Quiet Control

Ductless heat pumps are known for delivering quiet home comfort thanks to the compact indoor unit and noisy outdoor compressor being separated. There’s simply no comparison in noise level between a window AC and a quiet air conditioner wall unit.

Zoning Options

Having more than one wall-mounted, ultra-quiet air conditioner gives you the flexibility to condition multiple rooms in your home using separate thermostats. This solution, known as zoning, puts comfort and efficiency in the palm of your hand. For example, run the air conditioner in the kitchen and living room during the day and operate only the bedroom air conditioners at night for comfort in each room at the time you need it.

Improved Air Quality

With the system’s built-in filter, you can rest assured that air traveling through the ductless AC and heat pump is being cleaned before it circulates back into the room. This helps assure cleaner indoor air in homes without ductwork.

Easy Installation

If your home or add-on doesn’t have ductwork, you could be looking at several days of disruptive, expensive air duct installation for a traditional furnace or central air conditioner. This frustrating situation doesn’t exist with a wall-mounted air conditioner, which can be installed and ready to go in a fraction of the time.
The installation consists of running a small copper tube through a 3 inch hole in the wall or ceiling where the indoor unit is mounted. This connects to the outdoor unit, which is often located just on the other side of the wall. However, the outdoor unit can be situated up to 50 feet from the indoor unit, providing the flexibility you need for an inconspicuous installation, thus preventing the necessity to spoil your home’s curb appeal. Refrigerant cycles through the two components and the compressor is kept outside where it can’t disturb you.

Comfort Solution for Older Homes

Whether your home has very thick walls or simply has no convenient place to install ductwork, you can still enjoy quiet, ductless AC with a Mitsubishi Electric wall unit. It’s safer than installing a window air conditioner, which leaves your home vulnerable to troublemakers, and it doesn’t obstruct your use of the windows on mild days.
