Is a Mini Split Right for You?

Technology

If are taking the steps to get a new heating and cooling system, you undoubtedly have a lot of questions. Is there a ductless solution that will work for my home? 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 the ideal product for your home comfort needs.

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 within your space. Mini-splits are a wonderful 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 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 require ducts, less energy is wasted during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can help your utility bill too. With more control over the temperature in your house, you won’t unnecessarily heat or cool space that is empty or unused. Mini-splits can also help protect your home. Traditional wall and window units can leave your home more vulnerable to break-ins or intruders. Mini-splits only require a three-inch hole through your wall to begin heating and cooling your home.

Several of the more common reasons that people consider mini-split systems is if there is a room that is usually 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.
