One of the main reasons we selected Daikin as our partner for container work (initially) is the Ductless Mini-Split or Multi-Split systems they build. Unlike other similar systems, these units are full of technology to make them easier to use and trouble-free to operate. The best part, however, is the presence of the new 93-acre Goodman facility nearby in Northwest Houston so the company is accessible to us if there are any parts needs or information our customers might require.
What is a “Ductless” System?
For those not aware, the “ductless” system places one outside unit which is connected to inside “head units” by a metal pipe which carries freon rather than air through ducts from a central location. The result is that up to eight spaces can be set to whatever temperature you like individually. The “head” units sit up high out of the way and blow air at whatever temperature you wish to cool or heat the room. Each unit can be controlled manually, with a supplied remote control, or by an app on your phone or tablet, for maximum flexibility and energy savings.
Why Go Ductless?
The main reason is cost savings. Ductless systems can be less expensive to purchase than regular central air systems. However, their real advantage is in operating costs. It takes very little energy to run these devices since all you move is the liquid freon and quietly blow air over a room. Since each room is controlled individually, you can save money NOT heating or cooling spaces where no one is. Though every situation is a little different depending on space insulation and overall use, we believe you will notice the difference right away and the system can pay for itself quickly in electricity savings.
Where Can I Install These Systems?
We started our relationship with Daikin to install these in finished containers, and we have several installs to our credit. What we found though is they can be installed almost anywhere there are individual spaces to be cooled or heated. We have found one mini-split system can heat or cool 200 square feet depending on insulation and outside climate conditions. This means one unit per room, or two units per 40-foot container with one base unit powering both. However, we have also installed these in public restrooms, our Livingston Office, and shop offices just to name a few sites. Installing a multi-split system in a home is possible, but working around a central air system isn’t really ideal.
