Ductless Mini Split Systems

There is a solution for your add-on to help solve those “trouble areas of your home concerning heating and cooling with AC Companies in Fort Worth TX. For years, people who converted their garage into an extra room or enclosed their patio for more space were forced to install a window air conditioner to condition the new space. And they didn’t like the looks of that box sticking out their window after all the hard work and expense.

​The same applies to folks who had a room added on by a building contractor, who might have done a great job adding on but missed the mark when it was thought the existing air conditioning system could “handle one more room”. After all, enclosing a 400 square foot two-car garage can take almost a full ton of cooling capacity with AC Companies in Fort Worth TX!

​Enter the Ductless Mini Split

This solution is both attractive, cuts down on installation time, cost, and is visually appealing along with a much smaller footprint than conventional HVAC systems with AC Companies in Fort Worth TX. They are remote controlled so you don’t even have to get out of the easy chair to adjust the temperature! And ductless mini-splits are the ideal application and solution for installations where adding ductwork is impractical or too expensive or there is just no way possible to squeeze it in. The matched combination of an indoor air handler and the outdoor condenser is efficient and easy to install. Single zone home and office ductless units come in sizes of 9,000 to 36,000 BTUH total capacity and from 13 SEER (seasonal energy efficiency ratio) all the way to 26 SEER! The indoor units can be mounted on any outside wall – a small diameter hole is all that is needed for connecting the two units. A mini-split opens the view from a window that might otherwise be blocked by a window air conditioner. The units are operated by wireless remote controls and are packed with convenience and comfort features. See the video below about the ultimate in mini-split systems.

​Advantages of the Mini-split

As AC Companies in Fort Worth TX, the main advantages of mini splits are their small size and flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. The number depends on how much heating or cooling is required for the building or each zone. This in turn is affected by how well the building is insulated. Since each of the zones will have its own thermostat, you only need to condition that place when someone is there. This will not only save energy but money as well. Very efficient! And the ease of installation is far simpler than other types of space conditioning systems. For example, the hook-up between the outdoor and indoor units generally requires only a small hole through a wall for the piping. If necessary, you can locate the outdoor unit as far away as 50 feet from the indoor evaporator or “fan coil”. This makes it possible to cool rooms on the front side of a building house with the compressor in a more hidden location around the side or back of the building.

​Attractive Appearance and Multi-Zone Systems

Some brands of mini-split systems even have the indoor unit (fan coil) that doubles as a picture frame complete with several different “art” pictures – or even a more modern mirrored finish.

Multi-zone ductless systems are becoming popular these days instead of using conventional HVAC systems for AC Companies in Fort Worth TX. Multi-zone systems consist of one outdoor unit (or condenser) and one to four indoor fan coils that can be located anywhere in the house. Each unit has its own individual remote control thermostat mounted on the wall or in a strategic location somewhere in that “zone”. These systems can solve a variety of issues for many older homes with little or no attic space in which to mount a conventional system. For example, an old post World War Two home with one car garage – approximately 800 to 1000 square feet with no attic space can utilize multiple zones set up to heat and cool the entire home with just one outdoor unit. You can have one room at 74 degrees, another room set at 70 degrees, and so forth for the ultimate in a tight zone controlled comfort. These units have all the copper tubing running from each fan coil to a manifold distribution box located somewhere within equal distance to the outdoor unit. This manifold is just a series of thermostatic expansion valves located within the box that measures the flow of refrigerant to each of the fan coils. And yes, they can all run at the same time.

Ductless mini-split systems are nothing new to AC Companies in Fort Worth TX. They have been in use overseas in Japan and Asia for decades. As a matter of fact, many homes in Japan are so tightly tucked next to one another they rarely have a backyard. But they often have a very small stone-walled courtyard for outdoor recreational use. And with homes this tightly packed together everything must be smaller. That is why most ductless condensers are mounted on a high wall out of the way. But here in America, you see some outdoor units mounted to walls but we boast more square footage per home and with huge yards, they are usually sitting on the ground, tucked neatly out of the way.
