Answer: "Easy Installation - Copper tubing running through a small 3 to 4-inch opening in the wall or ceiling easily connects the indoor and outdoor units. Refrigerant is cycled through the lines from the outdoor condensing unit to the indoor unit, where the air is quietly distributed to the interior space. Aesthetically Pleasing - Conventional air duct systems tend to be bulky and can require special structural attention while ductless, mini-split system piping can often be routed through walls and joists to maintain aesthetics. Flexible, Remote Control Cooling - Because each room has its own handler, you can create up to four zones with a timer and optional wired remote that puts you in temperature control and allows you to meet the varying comfort needs of different spaces. Quiet Operation - Ductless air conditioners are comprised of an indoor and outdoor unit, which allows for a peaceful inside environment by enabling the contractor to install louder components like compressors and motors outdoors. Energy Efficiency - Because there are no ducts, systems lose less than 5% cooling vs. up to 40% for traditional forced-air systems. Increased efficiencies up to 27.2-SEER mean lower utility bills. Several models are even EnergyStar® Qualified, meaning they save you on your utility bill. Individual Zoning - Why pay to heat or cool areas that no-one is occupying? Individual zoning allows you to heat or cool the areas you want, and not the areas that are unoccupied. Environmentally Friendly - Most systems use R410A refrigerant designed to prevent the depletion of the ozone layer. Safe and Secure - Using window AC units make it very easy for intruders to enter your home. Ductless, mini-split units mount high on a wall, away from the window, providing you with improved security and a pleasant view."
