A lot of people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Popular in Europe and Asia, mini-split systems are gaining 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. Occasionally, they even have several indoor units.
Using a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to create individual zones in your home, each operated by its own thermostat. These zones will allow you to regulate only the rooms that are occupied. It’s common for mini-split systems to have the ability of connecting four specific spaces. You will determine how many zones you want in your living space relying 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 absolutely achievable because they are silent, condensed and make your home pleasant. What’s even better is mini-split systems are extra energy-efficient and can help you manage your energy costs while keeping your home comfortable.
When you’ve added a new room to your home, like a sun room, a mini-split is a great decision. Not only do they run more quietly than a window unit, but they look more streamlined in the room because the condensing unit is outside, just like that of a central air conditioner system. They also don’t block natural light like a window unit will. Truthfully, you may not notice it at all with many unique installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
What you select 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. Call us at 800-COOLING to determine if a mini-split system will work for you.
