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 struggling with any of these questions, a mini-split system may be the ideal product for your home comfort needs.

Mini-splits can provide more flexibility than traditional systems. Because they don’t require 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 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 an ideal solution when installing new ductwork just doesn’t make sense all while letting you create a heating and cooling system customized 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 require ducts, less energy escapes during heating and cooling than using traditional ducts. The flexibility they provide through zoning can also positively affect your energy 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 guard 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 get started on the path to home comfort.

Some of the most common reasons that people think about mini-split systems is if there is a room that is habitually warmer or colder than the rest of the house; there has been an addition to the house, or there are rooms that are normally unoccupied.
