Ductless Mini-splits cool air without ductwork. Since hot air rises and cold air falls by mounting the cooling section compactly on the wall, near the ceiling allows the unit to remove heat more efficiently and deliver cooling directly to the space where you need it. Automatic swing louvers and multiple fan speeds allow you to control the amount and direction of the airflow to maximize comfort.

Inverter Mini-split Benefits
Compared to the common on/off controlled compressor, the inverter controlled compressor runs at the proper revolution to provide the best efficiency and reduce losses. When the maximum capacity is not required, the compressor revolution is decreased. This means the input power decreases too, which results in increased system efficiency. Another advantage of the inverter is ‘soft start’. The compressor starts at minimum speed, avoiding high inrush current [4 to 6 times compressor full load amps] associated with conventional on-off type compressors. ‘Soft start’ reduces the instantaneous peak demand associated with AC equipment starts.
What is an Inverter?
An inverter air conditioner is both a converter of AC [alternating current] to DC [direct current] and an inverter changing DC to simulated frequency adaptable AC. The active filter and bridge rectifier rectifies AC by flattening output to create DC power supply. The IPM [Inverter Power Module] uses electrical components such as transistors and diodes to switch and chop created DC to make simulated AC at required frequency and voltage.
