Does My Ductless System Need to Be Sized?

Monday, September 14th, 2015

Installing a ductless cooling system is typically easier and takes less time because of the way the system is laid out and operates. However, there is one critical step that needs to be taken with a ductless AC just as with any other whole home cooling system: the outdoor unit needs to be sized properly. The blowers of a ductless system won’t change very much in size, and any differences in various indoor blowers are attributable to differences between brands versus sizing of a system. How do you size a ductless system? Let’s take a look.

What Are the 3 Components of a Ductless System?

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

One of the benefits of a ductless air conditioning system is that the main components are all visible, making them easy to reach for repair, maintenance and expansion of the system. While traditional AC systems have a number of less visible components, such as ductwork, the evaporator unit which resides inside and the condensate array, a ductless system is more streamlined. What are the three main components? Let’s take a look.

How Does a Mitsubishi Ductless AC Work?

Friday, August 1st, 2014

Ductless air conditioners are a great solution for many homes or rooms in which installing central air conditioning is not a possibility. While many homeowners without ductwork choose to install window or small room air conditioning units, these may be noisy, inefficient, and unable to cool large areas. Mitsubishi ductless AC systems are the best choice for many homeowners due to their high performance and efficiency and their ability to cool multiple rooms with separate thermostats.

How Does Ductless Air Conditioning Work?

With a traditional split-system air conditioner, the outdoor condenser unit connects to a single indoor air handler. The air handler or furnace connects to the return and supply ducts in the home. The return ducts suck in the air from the home while the supply ducts distribute the now-cooled air to the home. With a ductless system, the air handler is mounted directly onto the wall, eliminating the need for ductwork. The air handler both pulls in air from the living space and pushes the air back out after it is cooled. The installation requires only a tiny hole drilled into the wall so that the refrigerant line can run between both units.

Each outdoor unit can usually accommodate up to four indoor air handlers for even cooling throughout the home. Each air handler is also controlled by its own thermostat, or you can control every unit with a master thermostat. This means you can keep the air running in certain areas of the home and save money by shutting it off in other areas.

Is a Mitsubishi Ductless AC Right for Me?

There are many benefits of Mitsubishi ductless AC systems. Ductless air conditioners tend to have a higher SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) than central air conditioners, which means you may see significant savings every month. Zone control is another appealing feature since your family members can set the temperature in different areas of the home to their own preferences.

However, ductless air conditioning may not be right for every home. The best person to speak with about ductless installation is an air conditioning professional. For Mitsubishi ductless AC installations in Orange County, CA, call Command A/C today!

Is a Mitsubishi Ductless AC System Right for My Home?

Friday, July 25th, 2014

If you need a new air conditioning system in Cypress, you may want the system that will give you the best possible performance and efficiency. Purchasing a Mitsubishi ductless AC system is a great way to cool your home and use less energy than with many central AC systems, but ductless air conditioning may not be right for every home. So when is a Mitsubishi ductless AC the right choice?

There Are No Ducts Currently Installed in Your Home

If your home does not currently use a ducted system, a Mitsubishi ductless AC may be the perfect choice for you. Ductless systems have both an indoor and outdoor unit, much like central air conditioners. However, the indoor unit of a ductless system is mounted directly onto your wall, with up to four indoor blowers per outdoor unit. This means you can get cool air supplied throughout your home without installing any bulky ductwork.

You Want Increased Efficiency

Ductless air conditioners are very efficient systems, as they often have high SEER (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) ratings. The SEER, printed on the EnergyGuide label of any AC, rates the efficiency of a unit, so a higher SEER may help you save a lot of money on your energy bills every month. Mitsubishi ductless systems often have higher SEERs than many ducted systems.

Zone Control Could Benefit Your Household

Another way you can save money is with zone control. Each air handler usually has its own thermostat, or you can control the temperature with a master thermostat that controls them all. If two rooms tend to be unoccupied throughout the day, you can save money by turning off the AC or raising the temperature for those rooms only. Zone control can benefit your family in many ways. Often, different members of your family have different temperature needs. With a ductless system, the temperature can be adjusted in each room to meet the needs of each family member.

While many homeowners can benefit from ductless systems, talk to the people at Command A/C to make sure they are an option for your home. To install your Mitsubishi Ductless AC in Cypress, call us today!
