SPLIT DUCTLESS SYSTEM

DUCTLESS SPLIT SYSTEM

Called a split system because there are two components, the evaporator, which hangs on the wall in the wine cellar and the condenser (line set connects the two), usually located outside.  The condenser can go in a mechanical room, crawl space or garage, but if the condenser is going to be located in an indoor location, that space has to be at least twice the size of the wine cellar, or the heat that the compressor is throwing off cannot dissipate and will cause premature failure of the unit.  Installation requires a qualified, licensed HVAC technician.
