Recently, if you have opted for mini-split ductless air conditioning installation in Staten Island, then you should also be aware of what are the components of the ac unit as well as the working mechanism of the same.
The refrigeration cycle in every ac unit is important. During the refrigeration cycle, the low pressure gas gets transformed into high-pressure gas by the compressor. The heat is driven outwards with the help of a forced air fan. The refrigerant turns into a high-pressure liquid which is again changed into a low-pressure liquid by metering the device at the evaporator coil. Refrigerant absorbs the heat from the indoor air, and the cooler air is passed into the indoor area with the help of the internal blower. The low pressure gas is moved through the suction line back to the compressor. This cycle gets repeated again.
What are the various components of the ductless air conditioning system?
A ductless mini-split system has two units- the outdoor unit and the indoor unit.
The Outdoor unit consists of three primary components that includes the compressor, the condensing coil and the fan.
The Compressor is one of the major components and it is also known as the heart of the ac unit. The function of this part is to condense low pressure gas into high-pressure gas.
The Condensing coil is a lattice like structure that includes multiple aluminum fins, condensing coil cycles hot refrigerant and is involved in transforming a high pressure gas into a high-pressure liquid.
The Fans draw the air through the condensing coil and is responsible for dissipating the stored heat energy outdoors.
The indoor unit comprises of various components. Any conventional central ac has a blower, evaporator coil and a single air handler. All these are installed in a garage or equipment closet. If the air distribution network is a complex one, then it provides a pathway for delivering conditioned air into every room of the property. This happens from a single point of origin. These ducts can often leak and get dirty and noisy and needs to be repaired.
Ductless indoor units also includes a fan and evaporator coil in the same enclosure. Each unit has a point of use. Each unit provides point of use air conditioning wherever it is installed. Stylish cabinets are available in wall mount, duct mount and ceiling cassette varieties.
Whether used in single or multiple zone configurations, the indoor units can be strategically positioned to heat and cool one room or an entire building. The versatility and convenience of ductless technology completely eliminates the need for inefficient ductwork.
When comparing ductless air conditioning system vs. central air conditioning system vs. window unit, ductless split systems are quieter, more efficient and offer greater levels of comfort.
