Ductless air conditioners have two main components:
- an outdoor unit which contains a compressor and condenser,
- and an indoor unit, containing an evaporator and a blower.
Conduit, which houses the power line, refrigerant tubing, and condensate drain, connects the outdoor and indoor units. The conduit is linked through about a 3 1/2″ opening in the wall. No ductwork is required so there is no need to cut large openings in existing walls making installation fast and simple. There is also no need to utilize window space, allowing an unobstructed view that might otherwise be blocked by a window air conditioner.
Since the compressor is located in the outdoor unit, operating noise is all but eliminated indoors.
The Indoor unit is mounted inside the room, enclosed in an attractive space saving cabinet and is designed to provide quiet operation.
Ductless split air-conditioners have numerous potential applications and advantages. They are perfect for those homes or businesses that have a boiler or radiant heating system or those that do not have central air conditioning
