Easily control a mini split system

Is a Mini Split Right for You?

If you’re in the market for a new heating and cooling system, you probably have a lot of questions. Is there a ductless solution that will work for my home? What if I want to incorporate zoning to my home? Can I make my system more flexible? If you’re contemplating any of these questions, a mini-split system may be a good solution for your home.

Mini-splits can offer more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t require ductwork, they are usually easier to install. All you’ll need is an interior unit on an exterior wall and an outdoor condensing unit. For additional flexibility, one outdoor unit can support up to five indoor units, depending upon the specific model. That means you can create different comfort zones within your space. Mini-splits are a wonderful solution when installing new ductwork just doesn’t make sense all while giving you the chance to create a heating and cooling system unique to your home.

Mini-splits also offer benefits for your home’s energy efficiency and security. According to Energy.gov, more than 30 percent of the energy you use heating and cooling your home comes from the temperature lost through your ducts. Because mini-split systems don’t use ducts, less energy is wasted during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can also positively affect your energy costs. With enhanced control over the temperature in your space, you won’t waste energy heating or cooling spaces that don’t need it. Mini-splits can also help protect your home. Traditional wall and window units can leave your home more prone to break-ins or intruders. Mini-splits only require a three-inch hole through your wall to get started on the path to home comfort.

Several of the more common reasons that people think about mini-split systems is if there is a room that is typically warmer or colder than the rest of the house; there has been an addition to the home, or there are rooms that are frequently unoccupied.
