Is a Mini Split Right for You?

Technology

If you’re in the market for a new heating and cooling system, you undoubtedly have a lot of questions. Is there a way to get around installing additional ductwork? What if I want to integrate zoning to my home? Are there more flexible options? If you’re contemplating 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 need ductwork, they are generally easier to install. All you’ll need 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 make different comfort zones throughout the house. Mini-splits are an ideal 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 utilize ducts, less energy escapes during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can help your utility bill too. With more 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 vulnerable 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 typically warmer or colder than the rest of the house; there has been an addition to the house, or there are rooms that are frequently unoccupied.
