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. Popular 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 need all the ductwork. Occasionally, they even have multiple indoor units. Picking a mini-split system for air conditioning helps you create individual areas in your home, each regulated by its own thermostat. These sections will allow you to regulate only the rooms that are occupied. It’s common for mini-split systems to have the ability of connecting four individual regions. You will decide how many zones you need in your home 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 absolutely achievable because they are discreet, condensed and make your home pleasant. What’s even better is mini-split systems are incredibly 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 decision. Not only do they run more quietly than a window unit, but they look more streamlined 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 several 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.
