The Benefits of a Mini-Split System07/25/2016An air conditioning option you may not have contemplated, or even heard of, is a mini-split system. Mini-split systems have been prominent in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Identical to a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and occasionally with many indoor units. With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are capable to establish 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 occupied. Many models are able to have four individualized zones linked to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will change on how much cooling is required and how tightly the room is insulated. Mini-split systems are a great solution 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 that the productive levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have better control of your home’s comfort while also being mindful of your monthly energy bills. Mini-splits are great options for new home additions like sun rooms. They make less noise than a window unit because, just like a central air conditioner system, the condensing unit is isn’t inside. 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 right 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 828-775-5176.
