Most people have never heard of choosing 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 several indoor units.
Choosing a mini-split system for air conditioning helps you create unique sections in your home, each operated by its own thermostat. These areas will allow you to air condition only the rooms that are occupied. It’s normal for mini-split systems to have the capability of joining four specific zones. You will determine how many zones you require in your house 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 totally possible because they are quiet, condensed and make your home snug. What’s even better is mini-split systems are extra energy-efficient and can help you control 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 function 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. In fact, you may not notice it at all with many different installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
