Most people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Popular 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 require all the ductwork. At times, they even have multiple indoor units.
Using a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to establish individual zones in your home, each operated by its own thermostat. These zones will allow you to air condition only the rooms that are occupied. It’s normal for mini-split systems to have the power of connecting four separate spaces. You will decide how many zones you require in your home 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 incredibly energy-efficient and can help you control 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. Actually, you may not notice it at all with many distinct installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
