High Efficiency Air Conditioners

As great as it is to have a cool home all summer long, no St. Louis homeowner wants to pay more than necessary for that luxury. If you don't want to sacrifice comfort or cooling power, the only way to bring your energy costs down is with a more efficient air conditioner. Fortunately, Mitsubishi Electric high efficiency air conditioners fit the bill for many homeowners.

A ductless air conditioner, all in all, is still an air conditioner. Even the most efficient systems on the market today run on the same cooling cycle developed nearly a century ago. However, ductless air conditioners improve on that basic design in three major ways.

What Makes Ductless Systems So Efficient?

  • Variable-Speed Compressors: Located in the outdoor unit, the compressor drives your air conditioner by forcing gaseous refrigerant to become liquid and expel heat outside your home. Standard air conditioners have compressors that run at only one or two speeds, which means they have to constantly cycle on and off to cool your home. Mitsubishi Electric systems use special variable-speed technology to match your home's cooling needs in real time, eliminating that wasted energy.
  • Direct Cooling: Central air conditioners lose about 20 to 30 percent of their cooling power to leaks in the duct system. Ductless air conditioners neatly bypass those leaks by delivering their cooling power directly to your living space.
  • Zoned Control: A ductless air conditioner consists of a single outdoor unit and several indoor units placed in your home's living spaces. Because each unit can be controlled individually, it's possible to cut off air conditioning in unused spaces and save energy.

Efficiency Has its Rewards

With all these means of saving energy, it's no wonder that Mitsubishi Electric ductless air conditioners qualify as Energy Star air conditioners. That means that in addition to saving money throughout the cooling season, you'll be able to save even more by claiming a high efficiency air conditioner tax credit or rebate. The improved energy efficiency also helps the environment by reducing your home's carbon footprint.

While many homeowners opt for ductless systems because they're so efficient, these high-efficiency air conditioners bring other benefits, as well. Ductless systems are much smaller than central air conditioners and sit high and out of sight on interior walls, making them ideal for condominiums, apartments and other small homes. Because there's no need to extend the duct system, they're often the most cost-effective choice for new additions.
