Been looking on the internet and found ductless air conditioner
topics. This sounds interesting. First, does anyone have one? Second,
can it be used for mulitple rooms? For example, a unit in the living
room, perhaps two bedrooms and attic bedroom. This seems to be better
than window air conditioners. Thanks for any info that you can give.
These units are window units with the compressor and condenser
packaged in a remote unit just like a split system. The fan is
quieter than a window unit. The only way several interior units
could work on a single outdoor unit would be to have a variable
frequency drive. It would be more common for each unit to have
its own exterior unit.
We just added two 3 ton units to overcome heat load in a computer
situation - separate electric, separate splits, etc.
Keep the whole world singing. . . .
Being that I have never seen one, let me ask you some questions:
First off, is a single outdoor unit similiar to a central air
conditioner unit? Also, give me an idea of what a variable frequency
drive is and operates. The reason why I am asking about this is..I
live in Cleveland, Ohio. In the house that we live, we have what they
call Cleveland Drops for vents. So if I decided for central air for
the furnance I would need new duct work and unfortunately the way the
basement is designed, it would cost a good amount of money just for
that. So I am looking for alternatives..not including window air
conditioners. Also, just for a ballpark figure, what is the price of a
ductless air conditioner, including install. Thanks
