How Does Ductless Work?
Ductless systems can replace the traditional central ducted system and work in much the same way as the traditional air conditioner or heat pump.
Ductless systems consist of three simple components:
- Outdoor condensing unit
- Indoor air handler/evaporator (fancoil)
- An approximate 2.5-3” conduit that accommodates the power (wiring), refrigerant line sets and a PVC condensate drain
The condenser is installed outside the home or business typically on top of a hurricane rated concrete pad or a code approved surface. The conduit is then run from the outdoor unit to the individual room within the structure that you choose, even an attic or garage. Depending upon the system design the use of wall-mounted interior units, ceiling mounted units, recessed fan coils, floor mounted are then installed and secured in the appropriately desired spaces to control cooling, heating and humidity as needed.
