There are four types of mini-split models.
Each type of mini-split is defined by the INDOOR segment or evaporator.
- Wall mount
Wall mounted evaporators are the most commonly used. These are usually mounted on an outside wall.
- Ceiling mounted
Ceiling mounted evaporators are usually installed in commercial applications. They can be hung from the ceiling structure and most will fit a dropped ceiling format.
- Floor mounted
Floor mounted evaporators are exactly that, they can be positioned on the floor.
- Ducted evaporators
Most mini-splits are ductless, where wall space is unavailable, models which require duct work may be used.
Keep in mind that all air conditioners produce water, condensate, as a by-product, and this water must be collected and exhausted.
