An air conditioning option you may not have looked into, 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. Just like a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and occasionally with many indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are capable to organize 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 occupied. Many models are able to have four individualized zones connected to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will be determined by how much cooling is required and how successfully 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 thrive in a more tolerant 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 respectful of your monthly energy costs.
Mini-splits are great 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 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 installed in a ceiling.
Your air conditioning really comes down to what is the best fit for you and your house. If you’d like to discuss if a mini-split system will work for you give our professionals a call at 208-603-2210.
