    Construction and Repair

Mini split air conditioners are popular for many reasons.  They're easy to install, and energy efficient. They are also quiet when in operation and environmentally friendly!  Many models also come with zoning technology, which means you only cool the areas you that you are using.

Both the central air and mini split air conditioners have high-efficiency standards.  In fact, they were placed in the same split system certification.  Make sure to check SEER rating when purchasing your air conditioner, the higher the SEER the more efficient the unit.

PTAC vs. Mini-Split

PTAC (packaged terminal systems) are also known as wall-split air conditioning systems or ductless systems.  These PTAC systems which are frequently used in hotels have two separate units, the evaporative unit on the interior and the condensing unit on the exterior, with tubing passing through the wall and connecting them.  This minimizes the interior system footprint and allows each room to be adjusted independently.  PTAC system may be adapted to provide heating in cold weather, either directly by using an electric strip, gas or other heater, or by reversing the refrigerant flow to heat the interior and draw heat from the exterior air, converting the air conditioner into a heat pump.  While room air conditioning provides maximum flexibility, when used to cool many rooms at a time it is generally more expensive than central air conditioning.

 

Mini-Split systems, usually called ductless air conditioners are similar to PTAC air conditioners in that they are often designed to cool a single room or space, but ductless air conditioning allows design and installation flexibility because the inside wall space required is significantly reduced and the compressor and heat exchanger can be located further away from the inside space, rather than merely on the other side of the same unit as in a PTAC or window air conditioner.  In addition ductless systems will offer much higher efficiency.

 

Most ductless (split system) air conditioners still typically provide cooling to a single room or interior zone, just like a window air conditioner or PTAC; but more powerful outside units are becoming more and more available, supporting cooling of ever-more interior zones.  Advantages of the ductless system include smaller size and flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms.  Flexible exterior hoses lead from the outside unit to the interior one(s).
