Easily control a mini split system

Is a Mini Split Right for You?

If you’re in the market for a new heating and cooling system, you probably have a lot of questions. Is there a ductless solution that will work for my home? What if I want to incorporate zoning to my home? Is there a flexible system? If you’re wondering about any of these questions, a mini-split system may be the ideal product for your home comfort needs.

Mini-splits can deliver more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t require ductwork, they are generally easier to install. All it requires is an interior unit on an exterior wall and an outdoor condensing unit. For additional flexibility, one outdoor unit can support up to five indoor units, depending upon the specific model. That means you can make different comfort zones throughout the house. Mini-splits are a great solution when installing new ductwork just doesn’t make sense all while allowing you to create a heating and cooling system customized to your home.

Mini-splits also offer positive returns for your home’s energy efficiency and security. According to Energy.gov, more than 30 percent of the energy you use heating and cooling your home comes from the temperature lost through your ducts. Because mini-split systems don’t require ducts, less energy is wasted during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can help your utility bill too. With increased control over the temperature in your home, you won’t spend extra money heating or cooling areas that aren’t used. Mini-splits can also help guard your home. Traditional wall and window units can leave your home more vulnerable to break-ins or intruders. Mini-splits only require a three-inch hole through your wall to start making your home comfortable.

Several of the more common reasons that people think about mini-split systems is if there is a room that is typically warmer or colder than the rest of the house; there has been an addition to the space, or there are rooms that are normally unoccupied.
