The Benefits of a Mini-Split System07/25/2016 Many people have never heard of utilizing a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Common in Europe and Asia, mini-split systems are increasing popularity in the United States. Mini-split systems have outdoor and indoor units like a forced central air conditioner, but they don’t need all the ductwork. Sometimes, they even have several indoor units. Choosing a mini-split system for air conditioning helps you establish individual areas in your home, each controlled by its own thermostat. These zones will allow you to cool only the rooms that are occupied. It’s typical for mini-split systems to have the ability of connecting four separate spaces. You will choose how many zones you want in your home based on how much cooling you need and how well-insulated each room is. Using a mini-split system for your heating needs as well as your cooling needs is totally doable because they are quiet, compact and make your home comfortable. What’s even better is mini-split systems are incredibly energy-efficient and can help you lower your energy costs while keeping your home comfortable. When you’ve attached a new room to your home, like a sun room, a mini-split is a great option. Not only do they function more quietly than a window unit, but they look more suitable in the room because the condensing unit is outside, just like that of a central air conditioner system. They also don’t deter natural light like a window unit will. Actually, you may not notice it at all with many different installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling. What you choose to meet your air conditioning needs depends on your unique needs and what will work best in your home. We can help you find the best solution.
