Ductless mini-split systems are the future of cooling your home, and continue to grow in popularity throughout Fallbrook, CA! They give you control of the temperatures in a single room or living space without using inefficient ducts. These units are very popular in urban centers where people live in apartments that don’t have HVAC ductwork.
Ductless mini-split systems are the go-to AC system for people living in the dry, hot climate of the Mediterranean region and Asian countries which share a latitude with California. These systems are ideal for use in energy-conscious cultures and with strained electrical infrastructures. Energy.gov touts the advantages of these energy-saving heat pumps that can control up to four separate units in the home or apartment.
"Our AC went out and they were able to come same day and fix it. Very nice/professional. We have used them before and will use them again if needed."
Conserving energy is vitally important. If a room doesn’t need to be heated or cooled because no one is in it, it’s only logical to save the electricity that’s used to control its climate. Environmentally-conscious customers in Fallbrook can contact us to discuss mini-split AC and heating units.
Mini-split AC systems are great for many reasons, including:
Uses less energy to operate
Loses less energy than ducted systems
Might not require added circuits
Independently controlled AC
Wondering how a ductless AC system works? A mini-split AC system uses less electricity than central AC. Central air conditioners require 220 to 240 volts of electricity coming from a dedicated circuit. When they start, they draw 5000 watts of electricity and nearly 30% of energy is lost when air is pushed through ducts. Additionally, most homes don’t have spare 220 or 240V dedicated circuits, so electricians often have to be hired at an added expense.
Mini-split ACs with the smallest BTU ratings can require as few as 15 amps or 1000 watts to run. Ducted systems require 220-240V or more electricity to run. Using a ductless mini-split system could mean avoiding the added expense of hiring an electrician.
According to Statista.com, the average American home is 2301 square ft. The average apartment size according to Thrillist is 852 square feet. The smallest ductless mini-split system will cool or heat an open floor plan apartment of up to 650 square feet, or they can be placed in each room. mini-splits that pull more energy can be installed in large commercial spaces of up to 3100 square feet.
Mini-splits have an outdoor condenser that can power up to four evaporator units in the home, and each unit can be controlled independently. By turning rooms off when they’re not in use, it saves energy, the environment, and money while boosting comfort.
Fallbrook Ductless Mini-Split Systems Installation
Mini-splits are two-part units. The indoor portion is an evaporator, and the outdoor portion is a compressor or condenser. Between the two units, 4 lines need to run, including a drain line where water can drain outside, an electrical wire, and two refrigerant lines. Installation is comparatively fast.
The popularity of mini-split ACs is growing in the US thanks to their energy savings and increased control of room-to-room climates. Even five-star hotels use mini-splits all around the Mediterranean region, Asia, and their hotels in other warm climates. These systems are a great solution for California property owners.
