Is a Mini Split Right for You?

Technology

If you’re in the market for a new heating and cooling system, you probably 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? Can I make my system more flexible? If you’re struggling with 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 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 create different comfort zones in your home. 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 provide 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 use ducts, less energy escapes 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 house, you won’t spend extra money heating or cooling areas that aren’t used. Mini-splits can also help shelter 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 get started on the path to home comfort.

Some of the most common reasons that people consider 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 space, or there are rooms that are frequently unoccupied.
