The Benefits of a Mini-Split System07/25/2016 Most people have never heard of choosing 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 demand all the ductwork. Occasionally, they even have several indoor units. Using a mini-split system for air conditioning lets you create separate 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 normal for mini-split systems to have the capability of connecting four separate zones. You will decide how many zones you require in your living space depending 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 achievable because they are silent, small and make your home snug. What’s even better is mini-split systems are extra energy-efficient and can help you lower 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 choice. 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 block natural light like a window unit will. In fact, 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 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.
