An air conditioning option you may not have considered, 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 even more popular in the United States. Just like a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and sometimes 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 simplified zones attached to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will change subject to how much cooling is needed and how well the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a successful answer to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, not loud and help you build a more relaxed home environment. Not to mention, the efficiency levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have better control of your home’s comfort while also being cautious of your monthly energy costs.
Mini-splits are smart options for new home additions especially sun rooms. They aren’t noisy like 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 various installation options as well, including the ability to have the indoor unit equipped 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 509-284-4265.
