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 probably 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? Are there more flexible options? If you’re struggling with any of these questions, a mini-split system may be right for you.

Mini-splits can provide more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t need ductwork, they are usually 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 generate different comfort zones in your home. Mini-splits are an ideal 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 offer 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 require ducts, less energy is lost during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can also positively affect your energy costs. With increased 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 begin heating and cooling your home.

Some of the most common reasons that people contemplate 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 typically unoccupied.
