An air conditioning option you may not have contemplated, or even heard of, is a mini-split system. Mini-split systems have been favored in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Comparable to a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and periodically with many indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are able to organize individual zones in your home, with each zone having its own thermostat. This grants you to only cool the areas of your home that are not empty. Many models are able to have four single zones connected to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will change subject to how much cooling is needed and how tightly the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a successful answer to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, quiet and help you create a more tolerant home environment. Not to mention, the economical levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have greater control of your home’s comfort while also being respectful of your monthly energy bills.
Mini-splits are great options for new home additions especially sun rooms. They aren’t noisy like a window unit because, just like a central air conditioner system, the condensing unit is outside. They also have sleek, modern designs and don’t block out light from windows like a window unit. There are many various installation options as well, including the ability to have the indoor unit equipped in a ceiling.
Your air conditioning really comes down to what is correct for you and your house. If you’d like to discuss if a mini-split system will work for you give our professionals a call at 203-772-8319.
