The Benefits of a Mini-Split System07/25/2016 Most 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. At times, they even have several indoor units. Using a mini-split system for air conditioning helps you create separate areas in your home, each regulated by its own thermostat. These areas will allow you to air condition only the rooms that are occupied. It’s normal for mini-split systems to have the power of joining four specific regions. You will determine how many zones you require in your house 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 possible because they are silent, condensed and make your home snug. What’s even better is mini-split systems are extra 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 choice. Not only do they operate 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 deter natural light like a window unit will. In fact, 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.
