It’s normal for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when researching replacement systems or seeking to enhance indoor comfort, but it’s important not to forget about other 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 locations that need it. The indoor unit is attached 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 more difficult to cool or perhaps you have built additions or enclosed rooms to your space that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the experts at Donelson Air Service Experts come in. We can help you identify the issue(s) and advise the best solution. These are some of the more common reasons homeowners consider mini-split systems for maintaining comfort in Nashville:
- 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 will all be able to connect to the sole outdoor unit.
Not only can mini-split systems support efficiency and keep you comfortable in your living space, 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.
