Many people have never heard of utilizing a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Often found 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 several indoor units.
Using a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to establish individual areas in your home, each regulated by its own thermostat. These areas will allow you to regulate only the rooms that are occupied. It’s normal for mini-split systems to have the power of joining four separate zones. You will determine how many zones you need in your home based 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 achievable because they are discreet, small and make your home pleasant. 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 choice. Not only do they operate more quietly than a window unit, but they look more streamlined 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 unique installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.
What you pick to meet your air conditioning needs depends on your unique needs and what will work best in your home. We can help you find the best solution. Call us at 254-355-3833 to determine if a mini-split system will work for you.
