Many people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Often found in Europe and Asia, mini-split systems are growing 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. Sometimes, they even have several indoor units.
Picking a mini-split system for air conditioning allows you to design separate areas in your home, each controlled by its own thermostat. These areas will allow you to air condition only the rooms that are occupied. It’s typical for mini-split systems to have the ability of linking four separate zones. You will determine how many zones you want in your house relying 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 possible because they are discreet, compact and make your home snug. What’s even better is mini-split systems are extra energy-efficient and can help you lower your energy costs while keeping your home comfortable.
When you’ve added a new room to your home, like a sun room, a mini-split is a great decision. Not only do they operate more quietly than a window unit, but they look more suitable in the room because the condensing unit is outside, just like that of a central air conditioner system. They also don’t block natural light like a window unit will. In fact, you may not notice it at all with several distinct 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 763-276-0617 to determine if a mini-split system will work for you.
