The Benefits of a Mini-Split System

July 25, 2016

A lot of people have never heard of using a mini-split system as an air conditioning option. Popular in Europe and Asia, mini-split systems are gaining popularity in the United States. Mini-split systems have outdoor and indoor units like a forced central air conditioner, but they don’t require all the ductwork. At times, they even have numerous indoor units.

Picking a mini-split system for air conditioning helps you establish separate areas in your home, each controlled by its own thermostat. These sections will allow you to cool only the rooms that are occupied. It’s normal for mini-split systems to have the capability of connecting four individual regions. You will choose how many zones you require in your home based on how much cooling you need and how well-insulated each room is.

Using a mini-split system for your heating needs as well as your cooling needs is absolutely doable because they are silent, compact and make your home pleasant. What’s even better is mini-split systems are incredibly energy-efficient and can help you manage your energy costs while keeping your home comfortable.

When you’ve attached a new room to your home, like a sun room, a mini-split is a great decision. Not only do they operate more quietly than a window unit, but they look more streamlined in the room because the condensing unit is outside, just like that of a central air conditioner system. They also don’t obstruct natural light like a window unit will. Actually, you may not notice it at all with plenty of unique installation options as well, including having your indoor unit installed in the ceiling.

What you pick to meet your air conditioning needs depends on your unique needs and what will work best in your home. We can help you find the best solution. Call us at 503-374-1934 to determine if a mini-split system will work for you.
