An air conditioning option you may not have considered, 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 sometimes with multiple indoor units.
With the mini-split model of air conditioning, you can establish individual zones in your home, with each zone having its thermostat. This allows you to only cool the areas of your home that are occupied. Many models can have four single zones attached to one outdoor unit. The number of zones will change on how much cooling is needed and how successfully the room is insulated.
Mini-split systems are a reliable fix to both your air conditioning and heating needs because they are compact, and quiet and help you create a more relaxed 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 mindful of your monthly energy bills.
Mini-splits are top options for new home additions like sunrooms. They aren’t noisier than a window unit because, just like a central air conditioner system, the condensing unit is outdoors. They also have sleek, contemporary 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.
