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. Occasionally, they even have multiple indoor units.
Choosing a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to establish separate sections in your home, each regulated by its own thermostat. These sections will allow you to air condition only the rooms that are occupied. It’s normal for mini-split systems to have the ability of linking four separate regions. You will determine how many zones you require 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 absolutely doable because they are quiet, compact and make your home pleasant. What’s even better is mini-split systems are very 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 operate more quietly than a window unit, but they look more suitable 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 different installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
