When thinking of buying an AC, there are two major types to choose from; the ductless split unit AC or the ductless portable AC. This article discusses the advantages of the ductless split unit AC based on the example of the York ductless air conditioning unit as compared to the ductless portable one.
The first advantage of the York ductless air conditioning system is that it occupies minimal space. This is because it is very slim and can therefore be mounted on the wall, fixed or suspended from the ceiling. It therefore does not consume any valuable space in a room.
This is in contrast to the ductless portable AC which is heavier and has air tubes that move across part of the room. Since these tubes cannot be bent, this AC has to be placed few feet from the window and thus this system will take up the useful space in a room.
Another advantage of this ductless split unit is that it has a superior cooling efficiency. This is because this system has its cooling part separate from the heating part. The cooling part is therefore placed inside a room while the heating section placed outside hence improving energy efficiency. As for the portable unit AC, its cooling section and the heating section are all placed in the room.
Therefore as one part is trying to cool the room, the other part (hot exhaust air tube) is heating a part of the room. Therefore this system works even harder to maintain the room cool. This therefore means that this unit is not energy efficient.
Lastly, the former produces lower noise as compared to the portable ac unit. This is because its compressing part is usually placed outside. Therefore there will be lower noise in the house. But this system can be noisy when placed in the bedroom. As for the ductless portable system, it is much noisier because both its compressing and expanding sections are found in one single unit placed in the room.
