When it comes to installing a new air condition system in your home, you want to make sure that you install the right type of system. Split air conditioning systems consist of an outdoor unit as well as an indoor unit.
One of the biggest differences between a split or ductless air conditioning unit and a traditional air conditioning unit is that a split unit doesn't require the use of ductwork. This unique configuration can provide a variety of benefits.
Benefit #1: Easy to Install
One of the biggest benefits of installing a split air conditioning system is that it is easy to install and takes a lot less labor to install as a series of ductwork doesn't need to be installed under your home, so there is no work to be done in your crawlspace or basement. It does require cutting of an exterior wall though in order to place the inside unit and connect it to the outside unit. A concrete pad will need to be poured outside of your home for the outside part of the unit.
Benefit #2: Allow for Zone Cooling & Climate Control
Second, with a split-air conditioning system, you can use zone control and heating. You can use different internal units for the different areas of your home, allowing you to set-up and establish true zone heating in your home. This is great if you only want to cool part of your house.
Benefit #3: Reduce Energy Output
With a split-level AC system, you are able to reduce your energy output. You will not lose any energy via the duct system. You are not going to get drafts coming up through your vents. Split AC systems are really energy efficient and present very few opportunities for lost energy. Installing a split-level AC system can help you reduce your overall energy bill and save you energy over time. A split-level system does not only cost less to install, but it also costs less to operate as well.
Benefit #4: Very Quiet Operations
Finally, split-level ductless air systems are considerably quieter than central heating systems. All you hear is the fan blowing out air, you don't hear the compressor working. If the loud sound of the AC gets to you, a split-level ductless system can solve that annoyance.
If you are looking for a quiet air conditioning system that has a reduced energy output and will allow you to use zone-heating in your home, a split-level ductless air conditioning system may be the right choice for you.
