Mini split a/c’s have to be professionally installed because of the lines which run from the room to an outside compressor. There are three main components to a split a/c: the compressor, the condensing coil, and the fan. The way they work are impressively simple and are great options for remodels and renovations or a more cost effective choice than replacing an entire home’s air conditioning unit.
Just like a conventional air conditioning unit, hot air is taken in from the room it is in, and then taken to the condenser which is located outside. When the hot, humid air comes Into contact with the coils, located within the condenser, it is turned into a gas and then taken to the compressor and turned back into a liquid. Then the cold air can pass through the handler, located in the room unit, and pumped into the room and the process repeats.
That's where the similarities end. Mini splits can be installed in multiple rooms without ducting, installed in an outside wall, and are independently controlled. And, mini split a/c units are incredibly efficient. They can be installed in multiple rooms throughout a house. They offer better temperature control and don’t experience some of the temperature loss that a traditional duct dependent air conditioning unit does.
