The Benefits of a Mini-Split System07/25/2016 A lot of people have never heard of utilizing a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Common 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 require all the ductwork. Occasionally, they even have multiple indoor units. Picking a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to create separate zones in your home, each operated by its own thermostat. These sections will allow you to regulate only the rooms that are occupied. It’s typical 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 completely achievable because they are silent, small and make your home pleasant. What’s even better is mini-split systems are very energy-efficient and can help you control 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 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 several 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.
