A lot of 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 increasing popularity in the United States. Mini-split systems have outdoor and indoor units like a forced central air conditioner, but they don’t need all the ductwork. Sometimes, they even have numerous indoor units.
Using a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to create individual zones in your home, each regulated by its own thermostat. These sections will allow you to air condition only the rooms that are occupied. It’s typical for mini-split systems to have the ability of joining four separate regions. 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 totally doable because they are quiet, compact and make your home snug. What’s even better is mini-split systems are incredibly energy-efficient and can help you lower your energy costs while keeping your home comfortable.
When you’ve built on a new room to your home, like a sun room, a mini-split is a great choice. Not only do they run 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. Truthfully, you may not notice it at all with many different 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 512-355-1482 to determine if a mini-split system will work for you.
