An air conditioning option you may not have looked into, or even heard of, is a mini-split system. Mini-split systems have been popular 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 many indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning you are capable to create 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 attached to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will depend on how much cooling is needed and how successfully the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a great solution to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, swift and help you build a more tolerant home environment. Not to mention that the efficiency levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have more control of your home’s comfort while also being respectful of your monthly energy bills.
Mini-splits are smart 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 isn’t inside. 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.
