There are also additional features that you might like to be included with your mini split air conditioning. Many manufacturers offer models that have additional air filtration systems which are included or can be supplemented into your mini split air handler. Carbon filters, ionizing dust and particle filters, and more can further improve the air quality in the area your minisplit ductless air conditioner will service. This may be an important feature for you to consider, if you have children or others in your home who tend to suffer from allergies, or are sensitive to dust and particles. Some manufactures even offer replaceable filters which freshen up the space. There are even filters in development that supplement the air with Vitamin C, to help the condition of your skin!
Now that you can narrow down what your requirements are for your ductless air conditioner and ductless heat pump, you should start considering the various designs manufactures are making in their current models of ductless air handlers. You will probably be pleasantly surprised at the sleek and hi-tech-looking designs of modern minisplit units. They are generally compact,with a low profile (around 7”) and come in a variety of inconspicuous designs that will blend easily into your interior décor. They also come with a variety of installation options. The bulk of some ductless acs can actually be concealed within a drop ceiling. Others, such as the Lenox mini split can be mounted on the higher part of a wall, becoming almost undetectable. Still, there are standing mini split units that can be tucked away in an inconspicuous area on the floor. Try to find a design that appeals to your aesthetic, and won't interfere with other elements you have added to your homeor space. Compact and streamline is best, as the best thing about ductless air conditioning, and air conditioning in general, is the illusion that it isn't there! You or your guests will walk into your home,and feel at ease immediately. A silent,invisible, good vibe of comfort and healthy breathing!
