Mitsubishi Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioner Review

Mitsubishi Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioner Review

If you have a traditional air conditioning system at home, then there’s a big chance that you experience having areas with an insufficient airflow and spaces where there’s too much conditioned air being distributed. This problem pertains to the typical hot spot and cold spot issues that are common to houses where a centralized air conditioning unit for instance, has a lot of spaces to cover. Yes, you can dial the thermostat and set a specific degree of temperature, but the truth is, you don’t really have control over the amount of airflow that comes out of the vents in each room in the house. As a result, there are rooms that are often too cold and rooms that are often too hot.

Adding to your predicament is the lack of option when you want to cool/heat a specific room—like a basement or detached garage, for example—which is out of the path of your home’s existing ductwork. Even if you’ll find a workaround, the work needed is complicated and it would cost you serious amount of dollars. Obviously, concerns about comfort, control, convenience, and cost are at the center of the cooling/heating challenges that we typically encounter with respect to the traditional air conditioning systems. But where traditional cooling and heating systems fail, ductless mini split systems excel. A reversible system, a ductless mini split system consists of an outdoor compressor/condenser unit and an indoor air handler which are both connected by refrigerant lines and electric cabling system that are passed through a small conduit in the wall. Ductless mini split system is relatively new in the United States, but it has long been widely used in Europe and Asia and best known as an efficient, cost-effective alternative to traditional systems.
