It’s normal for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when looking for replacement systems or wanting to increase 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 focusing on the entire house, it works to heat or cool certain spaces or rooms within the home. It offers more targeted cooling or heating and saves on energy costs by focusing on the areas that need it. The indoor unit is mounted 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 particular areas of your home are harder to cool or perhaps you have built additions or enclosed rooms to your house that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the team at Strogen's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning come in. We can help you find 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 Rochester:
- 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 use more than one indoor unit, they will all be able to connect to the sole outdoor unit.
Not only can mini-split systems aide in efficiency and keep you comfortable in your living space, 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.
