Atlanta Ductless Mini Split Guide: Why Go Ductless?

Posted by Stephen Andrews

When most people think about air conditioning and heating systems they expect that they use large air ducts to move air throughout your home. However, ductless systems do exist and they actually offer homeowners in Atlanta very attractive benefits. Cool Air Mechanical provides complete ductless heating and air conditioning installation in Atlanta. We thought it would be helpful if we put together some of the benefits of using ductless systems.

Who Needs Ductless Systems?

Ductless systems are the only option for some homes in the Atlanta area. For old buildings or homes that don’t have the room for large ducts, ductless systems are a great option for heating and cooling.

How Ductless Systems Work

In a ductless system each room is cooled and heated by individual units. The individual units can be installed quickly and easily with a small hole in the wall. Each individual unit is connected to an outside condensing unit through that small hole by electrical and refrigerant tubes. The room units circulate the air in each room and use evaporator coils to add heat in heating mode or remove heat in cooling mode.

Benefits of Ductless Systems

  • Zone control One of the main benefits of ductless systems is that they naturally provide zone control capabilities for homeowners. Each individual unit can be adjusted independently which means that if you aren’t using a room then you don’t have to waste the energy to heat or cool it.
  • Humidity control – The evaporator coils in your ductless mini split system act as a natural dehumidifier by removing moisture from your air.
  • High efficiency – Ductless mini split systems don’t need to consume a fuel in order to provide heating for your home. Instead, they just move heat from the outside air into your home. The only energy they need is the electricity to run the individual units and the outdoor compressor unit.
