Ductless Mini-split in Madera, CA

Ductless air conditioners are becoming more common, and for a good reason. They can actually function as both heaters and air conditioners. Plus, they’re versatile and efficient. They can be used to cool an entire house, so you might consider one of these systems if you’d like to get some relief from the summer heat.

The Basics of Ductless AC Systems

A ductless AC, also known as a ductless mini split, doesn’t rely on ducts and vents in the home, so it can work for those who don’t already have central air. The system consists of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units. An indoor unit doesn’t necessarily need to be close to the outdoor unit, so there’s a lot of flexibility in terms of placement. You can put an indoor unit in a living room, kitchen, bedroom, or anywhere else that you’d like to cool. Several units can connect with the same outdoor unit. We recommend that the indoor units be placed on walls in locations that are about six feet high. That being said, there are many factors to consider, including proximity to heat sources, exposure to direct sun, and the layout of your home.

Each indoor unit can potentially cool a large area and can work independently. Therefore, you can set your living room to a certain temperature while keeping it cooler or warmer in the bedroom or kitchen, for example. Taking advantage of different zones can keep everyone comfortable and could help you save money on utility bills. At Brian’s Heating & Cooling, we offer services related to ductless AC installation in Madera, and we can help you figure out some ideas regarding placement.
