It’s normal for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when researching replacement systems or trying to enhance indoor comfort, but it’s important not to forget about different options such as a mini-split system.
Mini-split systems are a ductless form of heating and cooling. Instead of concentrating on the entire house, it works to heat or cool certain spaces or rooms within the home. It provides more targeted cooling or heating and saves on energy costs by focusing on the areas that need it. The indoor unit is attached to the ceiling or wall and the cooled refrigerant is pumped in via refrigerant lines that run to the outdoor unit.
You may notice that specific areas of your home are more difficult to cool or perhaps you have built additions or enclosed rooms to your house that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the experts at Service Experts come in. We can help you identify the issue(s) and provide the best solution. These are some of the typical reasons homeowners consider mini-split systems for maintaining comfort in Charlotte:
- Hot and Cold Rooms
- Unoccupied Rooms
- Enclosed Patios
- Homes Without Space for Ductwork
- Larger, Multi-Zone Living Spaces
Many mini-split systems come with multiple indoor air-handling units, providing you with flexibility for zoning or cooling individual rooms. If you install more than one indoor unit, they are able to connect to the single outdoor unit.
Not only can mini-split systems aide in efficiency and keep you comfortable at home, but there are cost benefits as well. According to ENERGY STAR, mini-split systems can cut cooling costs by 30 percent compared to conventional room air conditioners.
Just like traditional air conditoners, there are a variety of options and sizes within the mini-split family, and Service Experts can help you determine what’s the best solution for your house. They will consider factors such as room size, age of home, insulation levels, weather patterns and the number of windows.
