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. Common 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 require all the ductwork. Occasionally, they even have numerous indoor units. Choosing a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to create individual zones in your home, each regulated 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 ability of joining four separate zones. You will choose how many zones you want in your home 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 totally doable because they are quiet, condensed and make your home pleasant. What’s even better is mini-split systems are incredibly energy-efficient and can help you control your energy costs while keeping your home comfortable. When you’ve added a new room to your home, like a sun room, a mini-split is a great decision. Not only do they function 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 block natural light like a window unit will. Actually, you may not notice it at all with several distinct 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.
