As a certified Fujitsu dealer, Rusk Heating & Cooling is in the business of providing home owners with the appliances and equipment they need to keep their homes comfortable all year long. One of our most popular cooling solutions, especially for two-story homes, is a ductless split air conditioning system. Ductless split air conditioning systems offer room-by-room, or “zone,” cooling. As a result, ductless systems minimize the over-cooling you can get with central air-conditioning systems.
- How Ductless Systems Work: As the name implies, ductless air conditioning systems do not rely on ductwork to deliver cool air. Instead, simple copper tubing and electrical wiring is connected to a separately installed outdoor compressor unit. Refrigerant is pumped from the compressor through the tubing where a fan then quietly distributes cool air in the room.
- Benefits of Ductless Systems: Home owners experience a number of benefits with a ductless system. For one, ductless systems are incredibly easy to install and can be installed virtually anywhere in your home. Ductless split air conditioning systems are also remarkably quiet. While they are not as energy efficient as geothermal systems, ductless systems can greatly reduce your monthly cooling costs, especially when you consider that duct losses can account for more than 30 percent of home energy consumption. Homes that don’t have existing ductwork can greatly benefit from a ductless split air conditioning system. However, ductless air conditioners are also ideal for lofts, garages, attic workspaces, and other rooms in your home that may only need occasional, concentrated cooling.
