Many 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 need all the ductwork. Occasionally, they even have several indoor units.
Using a mini-split system for air conditioning helps you design unique zones in your home, each controlled by its own thermostat. These areas will allow you to regulate only the rooms that are occupied. It’s normal for mini-split systems to have the ability of joining four specific spaces. You will determine how many zones you need 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 completely doable because they are quiet, small and make your home snug. What’s even better is mini-split systems are incredibly energy-efficient and can help you manage 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 option. Not only do they function 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. In fact, you may not notice it at all with many distinct installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
