Most people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Popular in Europe and Asia, mini-split systems are gaining 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. Occasionally, they even have multiple indoor units.
Picking a mini-split system for air conditioning lets you design unique zones in your home, each controlled by its own thermostat. These sections will allow you to cool only the rooms that are occupied. It’s typical for mini-split systems to have the capability of connecting four specific zones. You will decide how many zones you require in your home based 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 possible because they are quiet, compact and make your home snug. What’s even better is mini-split systems are very 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 option. Not only do they run 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 block natural light like a window unit will. Truthfully, you may not notice it at all with plenty of unique installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
