An air conditioning option you may not have considered, or even heard of, is a mini-split system. Mini-split systems have been popular in Europe and Asia for quite some time and are becoming continuously popular in the United States. Just like 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 easily able to organize individual zones in your home, with each zone having its own thermostat. This allows you to only cool the areas of your home that are occupied. Many models are able to have four individualized zones attached to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will depend on how much cooling is required and how successfully the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a great fix to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, quiet and help you thrive in a more comfortable home environment. Not to mention, the efficiency levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have greater control of your home’s comfort while also being cautious of your monthly energy costs.
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 isn’t inside. 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.
