It’s normal for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when researching replacement systems or wanting to increase indoor comfort, but it’s important not to forget about alternative 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 particular spaces or rooms within the home. It allows for more targeted cooling or heating and saves on energy costs by focusing on the areas that need it. The indoor unit is affixed to the ceiling or wall and the cooled refrigerant is pumped in via refrigerant lines that connect to the outdoor unit.
You may notice that specific areas of your home are harder to cool or perhaps you have built additions or enclosed rooms to your home that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the professionals at Service Experts come in. We can help you find the issue(s) and recommend the best solution. These are some of the more common reasons homeowners consider mini-split systems for maintaining comfort in Roanoke:
- 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 additional solutions for zoning or cooling individual rooms. If you install more than one indoor unit, they are able to connect to the one outdoor unit.
Not only can mini-split systems support efficiency and keep you comfortable within your home, but there are cost benefits as well. According to ENERGY STAR, mini-split systems can reduce cooling costs by 30 percent compared to conventional room air conditioners.
Just like traditional air conditoners, there are many options and sizes when looking at mini-split systems, and Service Experts can help you decide what’s best for your house.
