A room addition or remodeled space improves your home’s value, but keeping it comfortable during a Pace, Florida summer poses challenges. It’s not always easy or even possible to extend your AC system to cool the space. Fortunately, blocking a view with a bulky window air conditioner isn’t your only option. A ductless mini-split AC system installed by the pros at Lunsford Air Conditioning & Heating offers an ideal solution.
Split the Difference
Most central air conditioners are split systems, with the outdoor unit “split” or separated from the indoor unit. Ductwork connects to a blower in the indoor unit to circulate air through multiple rooms. Ductless mini-split systems feature an energy-saving difference. Instead of difficult-to-install air ducts, a self-contained unit delivers conditioned air directly into your living space. Conduits positioned behind the air handler link to the outdoor unit.
Popular Applications for Ductless Mini-Split AC
When equipped with multiple air handlers, ductless air conditioning can cool an entire building. Because there’s no intrusive ductwork installation to worry about, it’s the most popular choice for single-space cooling. Ductless AC offers the perfect solution for the following situations.
- Outbuildings like sheds, pool houses and mother-in-law units
- Converted garages, remodeled attics and enclosed porches
- Guest rooms or other living spaces that aren’t regularly occupied
Benefits of Targeted Cooling
Financial savings are some of the greatest benefits you’ll enjoy with a ductless mini-split AC system. Ductless avoids the energy losses associated with leaky ductwork, which can account for 30 percent of the system’s energy consumption. Compared to window air conditioners, they can also cut your cooling costs by 30 percent. By providing you with cooling right where you need it, ductless systems enhance your comfort too.
