Split ductless AC systems have a lot in common with central air systems. These units consist of two primary pieces - one indoors and one outdoors. The piece of the system that is positioned outdoors will contain such components as the compressor and condenser coil along with the requisite expansion coil or capillary tubing. There is a very good reason that these systems were designed in this way. The piece of the system located outside is noisy! By splitting the design and positioning it on the outside, the primary source of noise is removed.
The piece of the system that dispenses your cool air is located inside the room to be cooled. This is typically a somewhat long unit and, these days, come in quite an array of stylish designs. This is where you will find the the cooling coil along with a blower and, of course, the filter.
For cooling an entire home or other building, central systems are the way to go. But for single room use, split ductless options are an excellent choice. Keep in mind that while there is no need for ductwork, they do need electrical and refrigerant connections as well as a condensate drains.
These models are typically mounted high on the wall. Each of these great indoor units will cool an entire room and have its own remote control. Split ductless systems tend to be more expensive than window varieties and installation by an HVAC professional is highly recommended.
