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 probably 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 struggling with 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 create different comfort zones throughout the house. 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 unique to your home.

Mini-splits also offer 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 is wasted 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 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 susceptible 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 think about 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 home, or there are rooms that are frequently unoccupied.
