Mitsubishi Ductless Air Conditioning
Mitsubishi Electric combines advanced technology, reliability and energy efficiency in its ductless air conditioners, providing an ideal solution for homeowners who want to improve the comfort level in their home. With their precise comfort control, quiet operation and zoned heating and cooling capabilities, Mitsubishi Electric’s ductless air conditioners are an optimum choice for homeowners looking for an efficient system at a competitive price.
Ductless Air Conditioners or Mini-Split Systems
Ductless air conditioners, also called mini-split systems, are comprised of an outdoor unit and an indoor unit. The indoor unit is the condenser, which delivers the cool air to the room. The indoor unit can be mounted on the ceiling, placed inside a dropped ceiling, mounted on a wall or set on the floor. The outdoor unit holds the compressor. The noise associated with air conditioners is generated by the compressor unit. Because the compressor unit is located outside the home, the noise stays outside, too. The fan in the interior unit makes no more noise than a ceiling fan; however, if noise is of specific concern, Mitsubishi offers “quiet” fans that provide an enhanced level of stillness. This quiet operation is one of the advantages of Mitsubishi Electric’s mini-split system.
How A Split System Works
The indoor and outdoor units are connected by lines that carry condensate, refrigerant and electricity. Indoor temperature is regulated either by remote control, which also allows you to control fan speed and other mechanical functions, or by a thermostat mounted on the wall. A timer function enhances energy efficiency by allowing you to program when you want the room heated or cooled. You will save money on fuel bills because you are not heating or cooling your home when it is not needed.
Zone Specific Areas
Mitsubishi ductless mini-split systems allow you to target the specific areas in your home that you want to heat or cool. Instead of cooled or heated air circulating throughout the home, it is directed to the zone where it is needed. This ability to target specific areas also allows you to combat hot spots, areas that do not get cool enough, and cold spots, areas that do not get warm enough. This zoned heating and cooling gives you ultimate comfort control and increases energy efficiency.
Energy Star Designation
Because energy efficiency is a high priority of homeowners, Mitsubishi Electric’s heating and cooling products include products that carry the Energy Star designation. Mitsubishi’s Energy Star products are not only energy efficient, they also help reduce air pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions, have fewer mechanical problems because they are of higher quality and perform better because they use advanced technology.
In addition to being more efficient than traditional window-unit air conditioners, Mitsubishi’s ductless air conditioners are easier to maintain. They eliminate the security risk of a window-mounted unit, are more aesthetically pleasing and improve the indoor air quality in your home. Mitsubishi’s air filtration systems use filters designed to catch minute air particles such as dust mites and pet dander that can contaminate your indoor air. Each unit has its own washable filter, thus eliminating cross-contamination of the air between rooms. When run in dry mode, ductless air conditioners can act as dehumidifiers and help maintain the proper moisture level in the room without changing the desired temperature.
Mini-Split Systems for Commercial Use
Mitsubishi’s mini-split systems are also good options for commercial facilities. Their virtually silent operation and air filtration capabilities make them an attractive solution for
- Nursing or assisted living facilities
- Computer rooms
- Exercise facilities
Other instances where Mitsubishi Electric’s split systems offer an attractive solution include:
- When the cost of whole-house or business central air conditioning is not affordable
- When certain areas of your home or business are not heated or cooled efficiently with a central heating and cooling system
- When your home or commercial facility does not already have ductwork installed or when there is not enough room to install ductwork
Whether it is new construction or an existing structure, a ductless air conditioner from Mitsubishi Electric provides the ultimate in energy efficiency and comfort when it comes to heating and cooling your home or business. To learn more about Mitsubishi Electric’s mini-split systems, call us today.
