An air conditioning option you may not have looked into, or even heard of, is a mini-split system. Mini-split systems have been popular in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Similar to a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and occasionally with many indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are capable to organize individual zones in your home, with each zone having its own thermostat. This grants you to only cool the areas of your home that are not empty. Many models are able to have four single zones attached to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will depend on how much cooling is required and how successfully the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a great fix to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, quiet and help you thrive in a more relaxed home environment. Not to mention, the economical levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have better control of your home’s comfort while also being respectful of your monthly energy spending.
Mini-splits are smart options for new home additions especially sun rooms. They aren’t noisy like a window unit because, just like a central air conditioner system, the condensing unit is outside. They also have sleek, contemporary designs and don’t block out light from windows like a window unit. There are many diverse installation options as well, including the ability to have the indoor unit installed in a ceiling.
Your air conditioning really comes down to what is the best fit for you and your home. If you’d like to discuss if a mini-split system will work for you give our professionals a call at 724-425-5852.
