An air conditioning option you may not have looked into, 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 increasingly popular in the United States. Identical to a forced central air conditioner they have an outdoor and indoor unit, and occasionally with multiple indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are capable to establish 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 linked to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will be determined on how much cooling is required and how successfully the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a great answer to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, quiet and help you thrive in a more relaxed home environment. Not to mention that 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 spending.
Mini-splits are top options for new home additions especially sun rooms. They are quieter 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 installed in a ceiling.
Your air conditioning really comes down to what is correct for you and your humble abode. If you’d like to discuss if a mini-split system will work for you give our professionals a call at 815-410-1128.
