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 need all the ductwork. Sometimes, they even have numerous indoor units.
Picking a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to create individual zones in your home, each operated by its 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 capability of joining four separate spaces. You will decide 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 possible because they are quiet, small and make your home snug. What’s even better is that mini-split systems are very energy-efficient and can help you lower your energy costs while keeping your home comfortable.
When you’ve added a new room to your home, like a sunroom, a mini-split is a great decision. 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 block natural light as a window unit will. You may not notice it at all with many distinct installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
