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 increasing 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 numerous indoor units. Using a mini-split system for air conditioning helps you design individual zones in your home, each regulated by its own thermostat. These zones will allow you to cool only the rooms that are occupied. It’s typical for mini-split systems to have the power of joining four individual spaces. You will determine how many zones you want 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 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 manage 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 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 obstruct natural light like a window unit will. Actually, you may not notice it at all with plenty of unique 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.
