What is a Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioner?

Ductless air conditioners are called “mini-split” systems because they are similar to a regular ducted split central air conditioner, only on a smaller scale. A split system means that the compressor/condenser unit is located outdoors and “split” from the indoor cooling coils/blower. Just a small three-inch diameter hole is cut in the wall to run the tiny refrigerant lines and electric wires to the indoor cooling units.

With the compressor outdoors and an indoor cooling unit mounted high on a wall or ceiling, they are super-quiet (sounds like a “whoosh”). These units are typically even quieter than many ducted central air conditioners. In a central unit, huge amounts of air must wind through complex ducts with many bends and shape changes, all of which contribute to noise.

Mini-split ductless air-conditioners are a preferred option to trying to use several room air conditioners to cool an entire house. Window units may block the window.

Nowadays the efficiency ratings of ductless systems (SEER from 10 to 19) are as high or higher as the top-of-the-line central air conditioner (SEER up to 16), and they can still be more efficient than window, wall and even central units. Since mini splits have no ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with ductwork of central forced air systems. Duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning, especially if the ducts are in a unconditioned space such as an attic.

Heat pump models are also available for keeping warm. If you hate that first shot of chilly air in the winter each time the furnace or heat pump blower starts, select a ductless model with a soft, slow start and a pre-heater for the air. For colder climates, some of the heat pump models also have backup electric resistance heat.

Ductless, mini split-system air-conditioners and heat pumps (mini splits) have numerous potential applications in residential, commercial, and institutional buildings. The most common applications are in multifamily housing or as retrofit add-ons to houses with “non-ducted” heating systems, such as hydronic (hot water heat), radiant panels, and space heaters (wood, kerosene, propane).

They can also be a good choice for room additions and small apartments, where extending or installing distribution ductwork (for a central air-conditioner or heating systems) is not feasible. Applications in other types of buildings include: recording studios, school classrooms; perimeter cooling for office buildings; additional cooling for restaurant kitchens; and cooling for small offices within larger spaces, such as arenas, warehouses, and auditoriums.

The primary disadvantage of mini splits is their cost. Although, costs have decreased dramatically during the past few years, such systems can cost about $600-$2,000 per ton (12,000 Btu per hour) of cooling capacity. This is about 10% more than central systems (not including ductwork) and may cost twice as much as window units of similar capacity.

The installer must also correctly size each indoor unit and judge the best location for its installation. Oversized or incorrectly located air-handlers often result in short-cycling, which wastes energy and does not provide proper temperature or humidity control. Too large a system is also more expensive to buy and operate.

Purchase from a wide variety of ductless mini-split air conditioner heat pumps on our website here

Small Window *OR WALL* Air Conditioners Available

We have almost a thousand 8,000 BTU and 10,000 BTU Goldstar air conditioners in stock!

These are hard-to-find window *or wall* air conditioners that come with a slide-out chassis for easy installation. Pricing on these units is amazing as you can see on our website. Just look for the Goldstar models WG8005R (8,000 BTU) or WG1005R (10,000 BTU) that mention the slide-out chassis in the description. You may not be aware that Goldstar is manufactured by LG (Lucky Goldstar sometimes referred to Life’s Good)!

Usually, you can find 8,000 or 10,000 BTU air conditioners for a lower price, but they do not come with a wall sleeve. If you plan to install a small air conditioner through your wall, make sure it comes with a sleeve and a slide-out chassis in case you need to service it or replace it in the future. You won’t want to break your wall to get it out!

By the way, if you’d like to install an air conditioner in a window (whether it be a double-hung window or a slider or casement window), we sell those cheaper than anyone else in the country too.

Please call us toll-free anytime during our normal business hours: 866-333-3770 or check our website.

If you do, in fact, see one for less, we will ALWAYS beat any competitors’ sale prices, so please contact us before you purchase from somewhere other than Feder’s Distributors!

Summer Supply Of Room Air Conditioners Available

Feder’s Distributors just placed a recent order of Fedders Room air conditioners.

Truckload Purchase
As one of the main West Coast distributors of Airwell-Fedders products, we’re very excited to inform you that another truckload of air conditioners should be arriving within the week!

Builder Model Replacement Air Conditioners and Air Conditioners with Heat
Most of the units we’re getting next week are perfect replacements for existing wall air conditioners. Like the Frigidaire “FAH” series (086, 08E, 096, 09E, 105, 106, 10E, 126, 12E, etc. models), LG “LT” series (LT126, LT12E, LT1230, LT1430, etc.), the GE “J” series, Gibson “GAH” series, Fedders “A” or “B” series (A1A10, A1B12), etc., and the few others manufacturers (Friedrich, Sunbeam), these units are rear discharge (a vent in the back) units and have solid sides.

No Need To Cut or Fill The Wall
Avoiding the burden and expense of cutting or filling the wall when removing an existing wall air conditioner, these units do not come with sleeves. They slide into the sleeve already built into the wall. If the sleeve is larger than 24″ wide and 14 1/2″ tall, these new Fedders models will slide right in. They come with a trim-kit to slide over the front of the unit and cover any gap between the sleeve and unit up to 27 1/2″ wide and 17″ tall.

Best Prices In The Country
These Fedders models A7T12 (Energy Star) and AET12 (Heat & Cool) are perfect for an apartment unit air conditioner and can be purchased by the building owner, manager, or contractor directly from us at incredible quantity prices or can be purchased by the tenant on our website, over the phone, or in our North Hollywood showroom for the best prices anywhere in the country. Guaranteed. If a similar rear-vented, solid-sided model is found for less, please let us know before purchasing and we’ll beat the price. We ship anywhere within the Continental United States.

15,000 BTU Energy Star Room Air Conditioner
In addition to these Fedders “T-Chassis” “builder” replacement models coming in soon, Fedders Distributors is also receiving a truck of 15,000 BTU Energy Star models. These are perfect for 2nd floor living rooms or large bedrooms or offices. They use 115V outlets and utilize very little energy. They are also eligible for $50 or more in utility company rebates!

How? Starting Monday, July 6 and ending on Sunday, July 12, everyone who sends a message on Twitter and places a #aafeders hashtag anywhere in their tweet has a chance to win.

Come again? We’ll be tracking your tweets for the next 7 days, and choose a winner each night at 9PM PST.  Based on what we feel is the best tweet of the bunch.  The winner’s air conditioner will ship out to you the next day (or on Monday for the weekend winners). Free!  You can tweet about anything and use the #aafeders hashtag, but you can also say something about keeping cool in the Summer.

What if I don’t use Twitter? Well, you can join our page on Facebook too.  If you’re on Facebook, go to this page and become our fan.  Once a fan, post a quick note on our wall about keeping cool during the Summertime and your note will be added to our list of contributions.

What if I don’t use Facebook? That’s fine too, shoot us an email with a note 140 characters or less  (don’t forget to include the #aafeders hashtag!) and you’ll be entered to win a free air conditioner too!

Why would you do this? Well, Summer is here and it’s getting hot.  Why else?

No really, why? No really, we’ve been providing comfort to Southern California families for more than 43 years and want to let the online community know that if you’re hot, we can cool you off!  We’re the experts. We’ve been shipping air conditioners across the country for the past 10 years, and can usually get you a brand new one within only a few days.

What’s the catch? Okay, we really want to build-up our new Twitter and Facebook accounts with great new customers and and potential clients and want to create a lot of buzz about our great company!

What kind of air conditioner are you giving away? Well it’s a 10.7 EER, 5,350 BTU, 110V, Energystar window-banger with remote and digital controls.  You can see a picture of it below.

Huh? Okay, you can see it on our website right here. An air conditioner unit this size can typically keep a room that’s under 200 square feet nice and cozy during a blazing-hot Summer. Yes, it’d be perfect the double-hung (up/down) window in your hot bedroom.

Will you provide installation? Well, although we provide installation within the immediate Southern California area, we can not install your new air conditioner for free.  But this should be a piece of cake for anyone who can read basic instructions and can lift about 70 pounds onto their window.

What’s it worth? Okay, regular big-box retailers usually sell it for almost $175.00 (if they have any air conditioners in-stock at all), but we carry it for $119.00.  In addition, since it qualifies for an Energystar rebate when purchased, most utility companies will send you a check for $50.00 bringing the net price down to $69.00!

Who are we? Again, we’ve been selling air conditioners out of our showroom and 30,000 square foot warehouse in North Hollywood, California for more than 43 years.  Although we just set up new accounts on Twitter and Facebook, Feder’s Distributors has been selling online since 2000.  We’re the air conditioning experts.  We keep you cool in the Summer!
