Easily control a mini split system

Is a Mini Split Right for You?

If your home’s heating and cooling system needs upgrading, you undoubtedly have a lot of questions. Is there a less invasive system than installing new ducts? What if I want to add zoning to my home? Can I make my system more flexible? If you’re wondering about any of these questions, a mini-split system may be a good solution for your home.

Mini-splits can deliver more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t involve ductwork, they are usually easier to install. All it takes is an interior unit on an exterior wall and an outdoor condensing unit. For extra flexibility, one outdoor unit can support up to five indoor units, depending upon the specific model. That means you can make different comfort zones in your home. Mini-splits are an ideal solution when installing new ductwork just doesn’t make sense all while allowing you to create a heating and cooling system unique to your home.

Mini-splits also offer advantages for your home’s energy efficiency and security. According to Energy.gov, more than 30 percent of the energy you use heating and cooling your home comes from the temperature lost through your ducts. Because mini-split systems don’t require ducts, less energy is lost during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can reduce your utility costs. With enhanced control over the temperature in your home, you won’t unnecessarily heat or cool space that is empty or unused. Mini-splits can also help shelter your home. Traditional wall and window units can leave your home more prone to break-ins or intruders. Mini-splits only require a three-inch hole through your wall to begin heating and cooling your home.

A few of the more common reasons that people consider mini-split systems is if there is a room that is typically warmer or colder than the rest of the house; there has been an addition to the home, or there are rooms that are normally unoccupied.
