An air conditioning option you may not have looked into, 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. Just like a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and periodically with various indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are capable to organize individual zones in your home, with each zone having its own thermostat. This permits you to only cool the areas of your home that are in use. Many models are able to have four simplified zones connected to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will depend 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, not noisy and help you create a more relaxed home environment. Not to mention, the economical levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have greater control of your home’s comfort while also being mindful of your monthly energy bills.
Mini-splits are top 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 outdoors. They also have sleek, modern designs and don’t block out light from windows like a window unit. There are many diverse 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 the best fit 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 956-630-3522.
