Ductless mini split air conditioning

Improve Any Space With a Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner

Staying comfortable year-round requires effective heating and cooling systems. In most new homes, an air conditioner or HVAC unit pushes air through ductwork and vents to provide warm or cool air as needed. But what can a homeowner do if they need heating or cooling in a space that doesn’t have any ductwork or vents? An older home may not have ductwork. In fact, depending on the age of the home, it might not have modern heating and cooling equipment at all. Even in newer homes with traditional heating and cooling systems, room additions or garages may lack ducts and vents. When you’re dealing with a space that can’t be conveniently tied into an existing HVAC system, a ductless heating and cooling system may be the answer. These highly efficient systems provide temperature regulation by connecting air handling units inside the home to an external compressor/condenser via a conduit line.

At B & J Refrigeration in Tucson, AZ, we carry the leading brands of ductless heating and cooling systems like Fujitsu, Mitsubishi, and Daikin. We can help you select a system and our team of friendly, experienced techs will install it. Contact us today for more information.

Ductless Mini-Split vs. Conventional Cooling Systems

With a traditional cooling system, each room in a home has vents connected to ductwork that carries air generated by the compressor/condenser. The home’s temperature is regulated with a thermostat, and when it’s adjusted, cool or warm air flows through the ducts and vents throughout the home to increase or decrease the temperature. All areas of the home receive air.

In a ductless heating and cooling system, air handlers are installed inside the home in the desired areas, and a conduit line connects the internal units to an exterior compressor/condenser. The air handlers inside are usually mounted on a wall to make it easier to run a conduit line from outside through the wall to the unit. Users adjust the thermostat of each handler to the desired temperature, and the system delivers air to that room. No ductwork is required and all cool/warm air is directed only to a specific area instead of the entire home.

Our team at B&J Refrigeration has extensive experience with all types of heating and cooling systems. We can answer any questions you have about ductless units, HVAC, furnaces, and other cooling and heating systems. We also offer a preventive maintenance program to ensure your equipment is working at its best all year. Contact us for details.

Benefits of Ductless Heating and Cooling

Ductless heating and cooling systems provide substantial benefits over other methods of temperature control:

  • Easy Installation – For those who want to add cooling or heating to a space that doesn’t have ductwork and vents, a ductless system offers an alternative that doesn’t require costly retrofitting. Ductless systems can provide comparable or better output over standard HVAC.
  • Superior Energy Efficiency – The energy efficiency of ductless systems is hard to beat. Even the best HVAC systems can lose heat through ductwork, but ductless systems don’t have that issue. Window units and portable systems are also far less energy efficient than ductless units.
  • Targeted Temperature Control – With a ductless mini-split air conditioner, air is delivered only to the space where it’s needed. Instead of air conditioning vacant rooms, these units provide temperature regulation only to specific areas.
