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 ductless solution that will work for my home? What if I want to integrate zoning to my home? Is there a flexible system? If you’re contemplating any of these questions, a mini-split system may be a good solution for your home.

Mini-splits can offer more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t require ductwork, they are usually easier to install. All you’ll need 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 make different comfort zones throughout the house. Mini-splits are a great solution when installing new ductwork just doesn’t make sense all while allowing you to create a heating and cooling system tailored to your home.

Mini-splits also deliver positive returns 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 wasted during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can reduce your utility costs. With more control over the temperature in your home, you won’t spend extra money heating or cooling areas that aren’t used. 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 contemplate 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 normally unoccupied.
