In order to understand how mini split air conditioners work, you first need to understand the basic cooling cycle. At the indoor coil, refrigerant chemicals absorb heat and become a gas; the chemicals then travel to the outdoor coil, where a special pump called a compressor forces them to condense and release that heat. By repeating this cycle many times, the air conditioner literally pumps heat outside, cooling the home and everything in it.
Central air conditioners use duct systems to carry cool air throughout the home. Ductless mini split air conditioners bypass the need for a duct system, cooling the interior space directly. They also incorporate a number of high-tech features to improve cooling efficiency and effectiveness.
Because every home's cooling needs are unique, there is no one answer to this question. Your Mitsubishi Electric contractor will assess your home's cooling needs and recommend a properly sized system. Your contractor will also provide you with an estimate on purchase and installation costs while informing you about any potential rebates or savings available to offset the purchase price.
