This Want Central Air But Don’t Have Ductwork? Get a Mitsubishi Mini Split! tip was posted by Sila Heating & Air Conditioning,



So you’ve decided you can’t go another summer without central air, but your house doesn’t have air ducts.  Do you need to rip up the house to install ductwork?  The mitsubishi mini split will provide you with the air conditioning you want without needing ductwork.

What is a Mini Split System?

A mini split system is made up of an outdoor compressor, similar to what you would find in a traditional air conditioning system. The compressor is connected to the indoor fan unit using a conduit that houses electrical wiring, condensate tubing, and refrigerant lines.  The fan, or evaporator, is housed in a small unit that is attached to a wall in the room needing air conditioning and doesn’t require the use of a window or floor space.

Features of the Mitsubishi Mini Split

The mini split system is controlled by a remote control, so it’s simple to adjust the system.  In addition to controlling the room temperature, you can adjust blower speeds, change louver settings to control air direction, or set the system on dehumidify only.  Some units have a heat option for cooler weather as well.  Since the compressor is outdoors, the unit is extremely quiet.

The Mitsubishi Mini Split system comes in different sizes so you can find the perfect one for your needs.  More than one indoor fan unit can be hooked up to the outdoor compressor so that you can have air conditioning wherever you need it.  If you have an open concept home with a large open space, and you’re concerned about whether this system can adequately cool it, you have nothing to worry about.  Some of the bigger units can cool up to 3,000 square feet easily.

If putting ductwork into your house isn’t an option, and you’re tired of dealing with noisy window units to cool your house, a Mitsubishi mini split system is perfect for you.  Contact us and we will be happy to answer any of your questions.
