Many people have never heard of utilizing 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.
Using a mini-split system for air conditioning helps you design individual sections in your home, each operated by its own thermostat. These areas will allow you to cool only the rooms that are occupied. It’s normal for mini-split systems to have the power of joining four individual zones. You will determine 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 absolutely possible because they are silent, compact and make your home pleasant. What’s even better is mini-split systems are extra energy-efficient and can help you lower 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 function more quietly than a window unit, but they look more suitable 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 many different installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
