Many people have never heard of choosing a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Common in Europe and Asia, mini-split systems are increasing 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 helps you create individual areas in your home, each regulated by its own thermostat. These zones will allow you to cool only the rooms that are occupied. It’s common for mini-split systems to have the capability of linking four specific spaces. You will decide how many zones you require in your house 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 doable because they are quiet, compact and make your home pleasant. What’s even better is mini-split systems are incredibly energy-efficient and can help you lower your energy costs while keeping your home comfortable.
When you’ve attached a new room to your home, like a sun room, a mini-split is a great choice. 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 deter natural light like a window unit will. Truthfully, you may not notice it at all with many distinct installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
