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 popular in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming continuously popular in the United States. Just like a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and periodically with various indoor units. With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are able to create individual zones in your home, with each zone having its own thermostat. This grants you to only cool the areas of your home that are in use. Many models are able to have four single zones attached to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will depend on how much cooling is necessary and how well the room is insulated. Mini-split systems are a great fix to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, not noisy and help you create a more relaxed home environment. Not to mention that the economical levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have better control of your home’s comfort while also being respectful of your monthly energy spending.
