Most people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Common 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. At times, they even have numerous indoor units.
Using a mini-split system for air conditioning lets you design unique areas in your home, each operated by its own thermostat. These areas will allow you to regulate only the rooms that are occupied. It’s typical for mini-split systems to have the capability of connecting four separate spaces. You will decide how many zones you want in your house depending 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 totally doable because they are silent, compact and make your home pleasant. What’s even better is mini-split systems are very 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 option. Not only do they operate 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 obstruct natural light like a window unit will. Truthfully, you may not notice it at all with plenty of unique installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
