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 continuously 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 able to organize 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 not empty. Many models are able to have four simplified zones attached to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will be determined on how much cooling is required and how tightly the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a successful solution to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, not noisy and help you create a more relaxed home environment. Not to mention that the productive levels of mini-split systems mean that you’re able to have better control of your home’s comfort while also being mindful of your monthly energy spending.
Mini-splits are great options for new home additions such as 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, contemporary designs and don’t block out light from windows like a window unit. There are many different installation options as well, including the ability to have the indoor unit put in a ceiling.
