The Benefits of a Mini-Split System07/25/2016An air conditioning option you may not have contemplated, or even heard of, is a mini-split system. Mini-split systems have been prominent in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Identical to a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and sometimes with various indoor units. With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are capable to create individual zones in your home, with each zone having its own thermostat. This allows you to only cool the areas of your home that are in use. Many models are able to have four individualized zones connected to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will change on how much cooling is required and how tightly the room is insulated. Mini-split systems are a great answer to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, quiet and help you build a more tolerant home environment. Not to mention that the economical levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have more control of your home’s comfort while also being cautious of your monthly energy bills. Mini-splits are smart options for new home additions especially sun rooms. They make less noise than a window unit because, just like a central air conditioner system, the condensing unit is outdoors. They also have sleek, contemporary designs and don’t block out light from windows like a window unit. There are many various installation options as well, including the ability to have the indoor unit put in a ceiling. Your air conditioning really comes down to what is the best fit for you and your house.
