Mini-split or split air conditioning systems, otherwise known as ductless HVAC systems, offer numerous installation options in residential and commercial buildings. Because of their size and capabilities, they are ideal for:
- Individualized rooms
- Efficiency apartments
- Music studios
- Older homes and cottages
Mini-split systems have two main components: an indoor air-handling unit and an outdoor compressor. The indoor and outdoor units are linked together by a conduit.
When selecting a heating or cooling system for your home, a mini-split ductless air conditioning system could be a very suitable option. Because of their various benefits, they’ve become increasingly popular in homes throughout the country.
Some of the many benefits include:
- Small Size
Because of their size, mini-splits can be installed almost anywhere on a wall, including high up in typically hard-to-reach areas. Stylish designs allow them to seamlessly blend into a room.
For older homes or small spaces with limited area for duct work, you can hook up multiple rooms to the same system. If your home currently has a traditional system with ducts, it’s also very simple to change to a mini split system.
- Energy Efficient
Instead of conditioning the entire house all the time, mini-split systems allow you to control the temperature in each room. They only use as much energy as they need to when people are in each room, whereas systems with ducts can consume 30% or more energy.
- Cost Efficient
Because of their energy efficiency, mini-split AC systems can save you on your energy bills. And because for certain applications and with available financing programs, they may be more affordable than other types of systems.
- Easy to Install
Mini-split systems are very simple to install, so a home can get back to being comfortable in just a few short hours.
- Flexible Applications
Mini-splits can be suspended from a ceiling, hung on a wall, or mounted flush into a drop ceiling. One outdoor equipment can heat and cool 1 to 6 rooms for maximum flexibility. Additional rooms can even be added at a later date.
Since you can control each mini-split system separately, you can reach the temperature you want in each room as they are occupied.
Unlike some systems that use air ducts or make loud noise on, mini-splits are extremely quiet. You may not even realize they’re on.
You control the temperature, style, and application. When you have a mini-split system, you have the freedom to decide.
