The Benefits of a Mini-Split System07/25/2016 A lot of people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Often found 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 demand all the ductwork. Sometimes, they even have multiple indoor units. Choosing a mini-split system for air conditioning helps you establish separate areas in your home, each regulated by its own thermostat. These zones will allow you to air condition only the rooms that are occupied. It’s common for mini-split systems to have the power of linking four specific zones. You will decide how many zones you need in your home 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 completely doable because they are discreet, small and make your home comfortable. What’s even better is mini-split systems are incredibly energy-efficient and can help you control your energy costs while keeping your home comfortable. When you’ve built on a new room to your home, like a sun room, a mini-split is a great option. Not only do they run more quietly than a window unit, but they look more fitting 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 different installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling. What you pick 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.
