Home air conditioning was first invented in 1902 by Willis Carrier. Carrier’s invention revolutionized home comfort, and to this day Carrier systems are some of the best central air systems that money can buy.
It wouldn’t be until 1968 that the next revolution in air conditioning would occur. However, it wouldn’t be in America this time, but all the way across the Pacific Ocean in Japan.
AC Problems Require Industry-Shifting Solutions
American air conditioning manufacturers did everything they could to sell their early units to Japan. The problem was that Japanese homes were not like those in America. The walls were thinner, and the buildings closer together. That meant that traditional air conditioning duct systems weren’t going to work.
Seeing that American central air systems weren’t compatible with Japanese construction and housing, the engineers at Mitsubishi got to work. Mitsubishi had already been producing electric fans for over thirty years by the time they started on their first AC unit. There was no shortage of aerodynamic or home comfort experience among their staff.
That’s how in 1968 Mitsubishi released a wall-mounted split-system room air conditioner featuring a line flow fan. The new system removed ducts entirely! Its design let homeowners pick and choose rooms that would need temperature control home comfort options. This also lowered energy consumption costs, and noise pollution.
Once again, home-comfort had been changed forever.
How Ductless Split-System ACs Work
As bulky, noisy and inefficient units, traditional window box and central air conditioning units do a great job of keeping us cool during a hot Pennsylvania summer, but they’re hardly ideal technologies.
Compact and quiet, a Mitsubishi AC system works by pumping refrigerant to a series of wall-mounted units located throughout the home.
These ductless units can be individually adjusted to set the ideal temperature in each room. With a Mitsubishi ductless air conditioning unit, home cooling is finally ready to enter the 21st century.
The Benefits of Ductless AC Systems
The idea behind a Mitsubishi ductless AC is simple, but the system’s sophisticated engineering provides a number of benefits traditional units can’t offer. Some of these include:
- Energy efficiency: A Mitsubishi ductless AC lets you program temperatures in each room. This allows you to save money and conserve energy by only cooling areas of the home in use. Mitsubishi ductless ACs deliver up to 30% higher efficiency than traditional products. They also feature proprietary VCSI technology that reduces the amount of energy wasted in startup and shutdown.
- Easy installation: Installing a central AC system is a huge job in homes that aren’t already set up for one. All that’s required to install a Mitsubishi Ductless AC is to run a small refrigerant line from the outdoor compressor to each wall-mounted unit. Therefore, no costly or time-consuming renovations are needed in most cases.
- Style: It’s no secret: homeowners have little love for loud and obtrusive windowbox AC units. With a ductless system, the only intrusion is a small wall unit that is quiet and stylish enough to blend into almost any décor.
