An air conditioning option you may not have contemplated, or even heard of, is a mini-split system. Mini-split systems have been favored in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming increasingly popular in the United States. Similar to 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 able to establish 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 not empty. Many models are able to have four single zones connected to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will change on how much cooling is necessary and how well the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a great solution to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, quiet and help you create a more tolerant home environment. Not to mention that the productive levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have better control of your home’s comfort while also being respectful of your monthly energy costs.
Mini-splits are top 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 put in a ceiling.
Your air conditioning really comes down to what is right 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 715-504-0533.
