Easily control a mini split system

Is a Mini Split Right for You?

If are taking the steps to get a new heating and cooling system, you undoubtedly have a lot of questions. Is there a less invasive system than installing new ducts? What if I want to incorporate zoning to my home? Can I make my system more flexible? If you’re struggling with any of these questions, a mini-split system may be the ideal product for your home comfort needs.

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

Mini-splits also provide 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 use 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 waste energy heating or cooling spaces that don’t need it. Mini-splits can also help protect 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 get started on the path to home comfort.

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 home, or there are rooms that are frequently unoccupied.
