Most people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Often found in Europe and Asia, mini-split systems are growing 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.
Using a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to design separate sections in your home, each operated by its own thermostat. These zones will allow you to regulate only the rooms that are occupied. It’s common for mini-split systems to have the power of joining four individual regions. You will decide 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 totally doable because they are quiet, compact and make your home comfortable. What’s even better is mini-split systems are incredibly energy-efficient and can help you control 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 deter natural light like a window unit will. In fact, you may not notice it at all with several different installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
