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 even more popular in the United States. Similar to a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and sometimes with multiple indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are able 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 not empty. Many models are able to have four single zones attached to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will be determined on how much cooling is necessary and how successfully the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a reliable solution to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, quiet and help you build a more relaxed home environment. Not to mention that the economical levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have more control of your home’s comfort while also being cautious of your monthly energy bills.
Mini-splits are smart options for new home additions especially 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 various 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 the best fit for you and your humble abode. If you’d like to discuss if a mini-split system will work for you give our professionals a call at 540-369-3790.
