The Benefits of a Mini-Split System07/25/2016 Many people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Popular in Europe and Asia, mini-split systems are growing 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 several indoor units. Using a mini-split system for air conditioning helps you establish individual areas in your home, each controlled by its own thermostat. These sections will allow you to cool only the rooms that are occupied. It’s common for mini-split systems to have the power of linking four specific spaces. You will decide how many zones you require in your living space 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 completely possible because they are quiet, small and make your home comfortable. What’s even better is mini-split systems are extra energy-efficient and can help you lower 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 choice. Not only do they operate 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 obstruct natural light like a window unit will. Actually, you may not notice it at all with plenty of different installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling. What you pick 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.
