A lot of people have never heard of utilizing 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 need all the ductwork. Sometimes, they even have several indoor units.
Choosing a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to establish separate areas in your home, each controlled by its own thermostat. These zones will allow you to regulate only the rooms that are occupied. It’s normal for mini-split systems to have the ability of connecting four individual zones. You will choose how many zones you require in your living space 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 achievable because they are quiet, small and make your home comfortable. What’s even better is mini-split systems are extra 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 sun room, a mini-split is a great option. Not only do they function more quietly than a window unit, but they look more streamlined 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. Actually, you may not notice it at all with many unique installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
