A lot of people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Often found 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 demand all the ductwork. Occasionally, they even have several indoor units.
Picking a mini-split system for air conditioning lets you design separate zones in your home, each controlled by its own thermostat. These areas will allow you to regulate only the rooms that are occupied. It’s normal for mini-split systems to have the capability of joining four individual spaces. You will determine how many zones you want in your home 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 absolutely achievable because they are discreet, small and make your home snug. 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 built on 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 obstruct natural light like a window unit will. Actually, you may not notice it at all with many distinct installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
