A lot of people have never heard of choosing a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Often found 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 numerous indoor units.
Using a mini-split system for air conditioning lets you establish separate areas in your home, each regulated by its own thermostat. These areas will allow you to cool only the rooms that are occupied. It’s common for mini-split systems to have the power of joining four separate zones. You will decide how many zones you require in your living space 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 silent, small and make your home comfortable. What’s even better is mini-split systems are very energy-efficient and can help you manage your energy costs while keeping your home comfortable.
When you’ve attached 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 deter 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.
