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 integrate zoning to my home? Can I make my system more flexible? If you’re contemplating 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 require ductwork, they are typically easier to install. All you’ll need is an interior unit on an exterior wall and an outdoor condensing unit. For added flexibility, one outdoor unit can support up to five indoor units, depending upon the specific model. That means you can create different comfort zones throughout the house. Mini-splits are an ideal solution when installing new ductwork just doesn’t make sense all while letting you create a heating and cooling system customized to your home.

Mini-splits also deliver 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 utilize ducts, less energy escapes during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can also positively affect your energy 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 guard 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 start making your home comfortable.

Several of the more 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 space, or there are rooms that are typically unoccupied.
