Ductless Mini Split Systems Are The Best Choice For Room Cooling & Heating
Many homeowners crank up their central air conditioning system or turn to multiple noisy window units to keep cool in the summer. Then come fall, they crank up the heat. Unfortunately, neither option is ideal: central air, though convenient, wastes energy by its all-or-nothing nature. Window units, in addition to being cumbersome, diminish a room's attractiveness and obscure its views.
Luckily, there is a third option that avoids these pitfalls. They are called mini-split systems.Compared to window units, mini-split systems are more attractive, quieter and more energy efficient. Plus, they're set higher on the wall or ceiling, freeing up living space.
Central air systems require expensive, intrusive ductwork and they're not scalable, meaning it cannot be easily extended to previously unfinished living spaces like attics, basements or three-season rooms. Mini-splits don't require complex, expensive ductwork and can be installed to cool and heat newly converted spaces.
Mini-splits also allow for temperature control by individual room for maximum comfort and energy efficiency. You can keep different rooms at different temperatures—a solution to the thermostat wars waged by so many families, especially those with young children or senior parents. And while central air systems and window units can be noisy, mini-splits are whisper quiet indoors and out.
Maximum Flexibility. Minimum Space
Mini Split AC systems position compressors outside the house, but there's no need for a basement- or attic-located evaporator unit, thanks to thin copper tubing that pumps refrigerant directly to discreet evaporators inside. In cold weather, the same unit works in reverse by absorbing heat from the outside air and moving it indoors. The result is efficient cooling and heating for year-round, whole-house comfort.
Finally, mini-split systems come in all shapes and sizes for a refreshing amount of choice. Wall-mounted systems mount well above eye-level, while floor-mounted systems, with their compact size, are ideal for residential radiator replacements or any room with limited upper wall space, such as a kitchen or sunroom. Slim duct systems are ideal for homeowners who want units completely out of sight, since they're concealed in a ceiling or framed enclosure below a ceiling.
