|If you struggle with installing and removing window air conditioners every summer and complain about losing the view out of your windows, or the convenience of opening them to fresh air, you are not alone in thinking there must be a better way. In fact, there is. It's called ductless air conditioning. This technology can be used to heat or cool and is especially well-suited to homes and businesses built without central air systems. It is used increasingly in home improvement projects where a porch is enclosed or an attic is converted to bedrooms.
Ductless systems use no ductwork or ducted air distribution. Because of that, there are few places where the systems cannot be installed. In addition to homes, the systems have been placed in thousands of offices, shops, motels and hotels, schools and universities, computer rooms, banks, hospitals, nursing homes and labs. Going ductless can mean changing indoor climates from variable and unpredictable to comfortable and consistent, without expensive renovation work or compromising the integrity of the structure

Ductless air conditioning systems
Ductless air conditioning systems were first introduced to US market by Sanyo Corp. of N.A. and Mitsubishi Electric in 1985. Ductless air systems are used for heating or cooling of homes or offices. By using ductless cooling systems one can air condition even the areas of the rooms that are difficult to reach. These systems are very practical for offices, homes, hospitals, banks, hotels and even the schools.
Ductless systems don't use ductwork or ducted air distribution and therefore can't be installed at some places. Ductless air conditioners are also known as mini-split air conditioners since they work in similar fashion as the ducted central air conditioners do, but on smaller scale.
Ductless mini split air conditioning systems consist of two essential components: an indoor unit and an outdoor unit. An indoor unit contains an evaporator and a blower. An outdoor unit contains a condenser and a compressor.
Installation of Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioners
The installation of ductless air conditioners is quite fast. Experienced installer can install a ductless unit in one day. The outdoor unit is installed outside of the room and placed on a solid surface so that it can remain stable, or on wall bracket mounted up to 10’ high on the outside wall. The indoor unit that delivers cool air is installed high on a wall or ceiling. A small 3-inch opening is made in the exterior wall through which pair of refrigerant lines connecting the two units pass. One of the refrigerant lines delivers electricity while the other takes away condensate.
Ductless air conditioners have many advantages over the central air conditioners. The first advantage is that the installation of ductless air conditioner is very simple, easy and fast since no ductwork is required. It doesn't use up window space or require large openings in the walls as the window or central air conditioners require. Thus it doesn't pose any security risk as the central air conditioners do.
