An air conditioning option you may not have considered, or even heard of, is a mini-split system. Mini-split systems have been prominent in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming even more popular in the United States. Comparable to a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and periodically with multiple indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are able to organize individual zones in your home, with each zone having its own thermostat. This allows you to only cool the areas of your home that are in use. Many models are able to have four individualized zones linked to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will depend on how much cooling is required and how well the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a successful answer to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, not noisy and help you build a more comfortable home environment. Not to mention, the economical levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have greater control of your home’s comfort while also being respectful of your monthly energy costs.
Mini-splits are top options for new home additions like sun rooms. They make less noise than a window unit because, just like a central air conditioner system, the condensing unit is outside. They also have sleek, contemporary designs and don’t block out light from windows like a window unit. There are many diverse installation options as well, including the ability to have the indoor unit equipped in a ceiling.
Your air conditioning really comes down to what is right for you and your home. If you’d like to discuss if a mini-split system will work for you give our professionals a call at 515-207-6569.
