It’s common for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when researching replacement systems or trying to improve 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 specific spaces or rooms within the home. It provides more targeted cooling or heating and saves on energy costs by focusing on the rooms and space 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 certain areas of your home are more difficult to cool or perhaps you have built additions or enclosed rooms to your home that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the team at Church Services come in. We can help you recognize the issue(s) and advise the best solution. These are some of the most popular reasons homeowners consider mini-split systems for maintaining comfort in Houston:
- 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 will all be able to connect to the sole outdoor unit.
Not only can mini-split systems help with efficiency and keep you comfortable within your home, but there are cost benefits as well. According to ENERGY STAR, mini-split systems can lower cooling costs by 30 percent compared to conventional room air conditioners.
