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. Identical to 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 capable to create 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 linked to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will change on how much cooling is needed and how well the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a great 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 more control of your home’s comfort while also being cautious of your monthly energy spending.
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 isn’t inside. They also have sleek, contemporary designs and don’t block out light from windows like a window unit. There are many diverse installation options as well, including the ability to have the indoor unit put in a ceiling.
