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 increasingly 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 establish 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 simplified zones attached to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will change on how much cooling is required and how tightly the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a successful answer to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, not noisy and help you build a more comfortable home environment. Not to mention that the productive 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 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 outside. They also have sleek, current 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.
