When Are Ductless Mini-Split Systems The Right Choice?

Have you recently made home additions for extra living space? Do you have a bonus room that stays too hot or cold? Maybe you just turned your garage into an apartment or built a cabin in the mountains. All these scenarios have one thing in common: they’re great instances for investing in ductless mini-split systems. If you’re looking to install a new, highly efficient, low maintenance comfort system, a ductless mini-split system might be the perfect thing for you. mini-split systems

What are ductless mini-split systems?

Ductless mini-split systems are ductless heat pumps or air conditioners that combine a wall-mounted indoor unit with an outdoor compressor. They’re often used in place of a window unit for better comfort, efficiency, and noise level while heating or cooling relatively small spaces. While they are small in size, making them easy to install virtually anywhere you want, they make a big impact on your comfort. They also work especially well in our hot, humid climate of Madison County.

Where can I use ductless mini-split systems? 

Depending on your specific situation, as well as the construction of the space, mini-split systems can be a great option for a variety of different uses such as:

  • Garage Apartments
  • Studio Apartments
  • Bonus Rooms
  • Sun Rooms
  • Home Additions
  • Basements
  • Cabins
  • Tiny Homes
  • Homes Without Ductwork
  • Small Offices
  • Event Spaces
  • Home Renovations

What are the advantages of ductless mini-split systems?

Mini-splits have some really great advantages over other comfort systems in certain situations such as: 

  • Ability to heat or cool individual rooms.
  • Zoning for multiple mini-split wall mounts to be hooked up to one compressor. 
  • Each mini-split contains its own thermostat, so it only runs when you need it to.
  • Small in size and quiet, making them more desirable than window units.
  • Built for optimal energy efficiency, saving you money at all times.
  • Easy to install and maintain.
  • Provide flexibility in design options as different units can be mounted or placed in different ways.

Go with a good contractor.

Contractors who are experienced with installing mini-split units will ultimately save you time and money.
