Air Conditioning Mini Split Options | Home or Business

A commercial customer was looking for the comfort of central air with the duct less option for a newly renovated office. The best of both worlds is a Mini Split Air Conditioning System.

A mini split system is much like central air as there is an outdoor and indoor unit. The difference is the indoor unit is in the room you would like it to cool.

Our customer chose to go with the Fujitsu Mini Split System. This particular unit includes this outdoor unit, which was safely mounted to the roof and indoor ceiling cassette’s. The difference between the Fujitsu units and the Lennox units is with the cassette’s Fujisu offer’s. Businesses or homes with t-bar ceiling can simply “drop” these cassette’s in where a ceiling tile would have been.

Some of the features of this Fujitsu System are:

  • Inverter Technology – now more economical to operate and quieter to run, handle greater extremes in temperature, are smoother and more stable in operation and can reach the desired temperature faster than conventional air conditioners.
  • Swing Louvers – the air flow direction is set automatically to match the operating mode.
  • Slender Fit – this design allows for the cassette’s to be installed with very limited ceiling space.
  • 4 Way Air Flow – Airflow in all directions maintains an even temperature throughout a space – perfect for in a corner or long hallways.
  • Simple Maintenance – There is a detachable and washable air intake grille and filter.
  • Humidity Control – this system features Dry Mode, which helps to control humidity levels even when cooling may not be needed.

The Lennox Mini Split System is an excellent addition for a home or business without forced air heating (and cooling) and offers a more affordable cost than ceiling cassette’s. If your home, business or shop has infloor heating this would be a great cooling option if you didn’t want to run ducts throughout the house. Also keeping in mind if you do have infloor heating and go with a mini split system for your cooling, we do still recommend having an HRV in your home (which is less ducts than forced air) to ensure you are able to bring fresh air in and remove stale air from the home.
