Many people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Common 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 require all the ductwork. Sometimes, they even have numerous indoor units.
Choosing a mini-split system for air conditioning lets you design unique areas in your home, each controlled 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 ability of connecting four separate zones. You will determine how many zones you require in your house 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 completely achievable because they are silent, condensed and make your home snug. What’s even better is mini-split systems are incredibly energy-efficient and can help you manage 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 option. Not only do they operate more quietly than a window unit, but they look more suitable 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. In fact, you may not notice it at all with plenty of unique installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
