Easily control a mini split system

Is a Mini Split Right for You?

If you’re in the market for a new heating and cooling system, you likely have a lot of questions. Is there a way to get around installing additional ductwork? What if I want to incorporate zoning to my home? Are there more flexible options? If you’re wondering about any of these questions, a mini-split system may be a good solution for your home.

Mini-splits can provide more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t need ductwork, they are typically easier to install. All it requires 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 tailored to your home.

Mini-splits also deliver benefits 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 utilize 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 spend extra money heating or cooling areas that aren’t used. Mini-splits can also help shelter your home. Traditional wall and window units can leave your home more susceptible to break-ins or intruders. Mini-splits only require a three-inch hole through your wall to start making your home comfortable.

Some of the most common reasons that people think about mini-split systems is if there is a room that is habitually warmer or colder than the rest of the house; there has been an addition to the house, or there are rooms that are normally unoccupied.
