Through the Wall Air Conditioner – A New Way of Looking at That Concept

When I was growing up very few people had central air conditioning, let alone a through the wall air conditioner.

Some had a window unit in their window, and still others would install a window unit right in the wall.

That is what I would call a “through the wall” air conditioner, until recently.

There is now a much newer and better heating and cooling system that really makes a whole lot of sense. First, though, why would a person put a window unit in the wall of their house?

This New Heating and Cooling System Doesn’t Need Ductwork

Sometimes because it was less expensive than putting in central air.

Sometimes because they didn’t have duct work for central air.

This modern heating and cooling solution addresses all of those reasons in a much more tasteful way though.

Fuel Efficiency and Lower Energy Costs

What the modern through the wall air conditioner does is combine a window unit in the wall with an outdoor central unit.  This gives the benefits of both, plus some additional benefits.

One additional benefit is that this heating and cooling system is very quiet. Another additional benefit is that it is even easier to install than putting a window unit in the wall.

Easy to Install

Instead of having to cut a gaping hole in the wall, usually a 3 inch hole (or smaller) will do with a modern through the wall air conditioner.

Along with that, though, ease of installation and the ability to zone cool is still possible, just like with the old fashioned wall unit.

This heating and air conditioning system, also known as mini ductless ac or mini split unit air conditioning, is much more energy efficient and cost effective.

You only heat (or cool) the rooms of the home that you want to, which means you’ll spend less money on heating and cooling bills.  Also, your through the wall system design includes a heat pump.  The heat pump basically removes the “warm” from the outside air and releases it inside to heat your home.
