It utilizes components in a split system like a central air conditioner. There is an outside condenser and compressor as well as an oxygen handler on the inside.
A mini-split system functions much like a typical central AC unit. This type of unit is more expensive than a portable unit, but there is no need for ducts to be installed in your home, making it a great solution for properties where installing ducts or central air conditioning will be far too expensive.
Recently, we tested a Toshiba mini split air conditioner which turned out to be an excellent product. This model comes with complete DIY installation instructions. This can certainly help you save on the cost of hiring someone for the installation.
The 9000 BTU Ductless Split Air Conditioner is an excellent option for anyone living in a home that lacks the necessary electrical work or duct system needed to install a typical central air unit.
A mini-split offers quiet operation and is far more energy efficient than portable units. Furthermore, you won’t have to worry about blocking a window or taking up a large amount of floor space.
Similar to a central AC unit, a mini split has two separate elements: a compressor/condenser which is outside and the air handler unit that is indoors. These components are connected by conduits which, depending on the length of the conduit, can allow the inside and outside units to be as much as 50 feet from each other.
The higher the SEER rating for an AC unit, the better overall performance you will experience. A 13.0 SEER rating is fairly common for a typical AC system and mini-split systems frequently rate even higher.
Toshiba mini-split systems are extremely cost-effective and offer an excellent alternative to air conditioners that are mounted in a window. Furthermore, considering that they don’t require a duct system, these air conditioners are perfect for older homes, especially when you want to avoid the high cost of installing ductwork.
Other benefits include the ability to save window space as well as the consequent light that will filter in through the window. Additionally, because the compressor is located outside, there is much less noise and many models can easily be converted to act as a heat pump providing cooling comfort in the summer while also offering warmth on cold winter days.
