Easily control a mini split system

Is a Mini Split Right for You?

If your home’s heating and cooling system needs upgrading, you probably 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? Are there more flexible options? If you’re contemplating any of these questions, a mini-split system may be right for you.

Mini-splits can deliver more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t involve ductwork, they are usually easier to install. All it takes 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 in your home. 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 customized to your home.

Mini-splits also deliver 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 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 guard 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.

A few 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 home, or there are rooms that are normally unoccupied.
