  • A very quiet indoor air-distribution unit.
  • Some hidden refrigeration lines (that are used to link the units).
  • An outdoor compressor or condenser. (To which the units are linked).

Ductless air conditioners are also known as split system air conditioners or mini –split systems. As mentioned earlier the larger unit is places outside the building or home. It is the smaller unit that provides cooling air throughout the home or office. This is possible because a pair of refrigerated coils is situated between these two parts. One of them takes away the warmer air from the inside. The other provides cooler and refrigerated air. The system is designed in such a way that it has a thermostat control and also a very quiet blower fan that helps to move the air around the unit and the home in a very efficient manner.
