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 popular in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming even more popular in the United States. Identical to a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and occasionally with various indoor units. With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are capable to create 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 connected to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will be determined on how much cooling is required and how tightly the room is insulated. Mini-split systems are a reliable solution to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, quiet and help you create a more relaxed home environment. Not to mention that the productive levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have more control of your home’s comfort while also being mindful of your monthly energy costs. Mini-splits are great options for new home additions like sun rooms. They are quieter than a window unit because, just like a central air conditioner system, the condensing unit is outdoors. They also have sleek, contemporary designs and don’t block out light from windows like a window unit. There are many different installation options as well, including the ability to have the indoor unit installed in a ceiling. Your air conditioning really comes down to what is correct for you and your home. If you’d like to discuss if a mini-split system will work for you give our professionals a call at 530-885-8081.
