What is Ductless Air Conditioning?



Like conventional HVAC systems ductless systems locate the condensing unit housing the noisy compressor outside the building, however, the need for an evaporator and bulky ductwork inside the building is eliminated by using thin copper tubing carrying refrigerant to discreet units in each room.


The thin cooper tubing can pass through a small hole (3-4 inches in some situations) in either wall or ceilings to connect each indoor unit to the unit outside. Refrigerant is cycled through the tubing from the outdoor unit to the indoor unit, where the air is quietly and evenly distributed to the interior space where it is needed. Remarkably, the same system can work in reverse providing heat to the interior space.
