Many people have never heard of utilizing a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Often found 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 demand all the ductwork. Occasionally, they even have several indoor units.
Choosing a mini-split system for air conditioning lets you establish individual sections in your home, each controlled by its own thermostat. These sections will allow you to cool only the rooms that are occupied. It’s common for mini-split systems to have the power of linking four separate zones. You will decide how many zones you want in your living space 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 totally achievable because they are discreet, 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 added 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 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. In fact, you may not notice it at all with several unique installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
