It’s common for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when researching replacement systems or seeking 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 targeting the entire house, it works to heat or cool particular spaces or rooms within the home. It provides more targeted cooling or heating and saves on energy costs by focusing on the locations that need it. The indoor unit is affixed 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 more difficult to cool or perhaps you have built additions or enclosed rooms to your house that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the experts at Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning come in. We can help you find the issue(s) and recommend the best solution. These are some of the most popular reasons homeowners consider mini-split systems for maintaining comfort in Calgary:
- 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 utilize more than one indoor unit, they are able to connect to the single outdoor unit.
Not only can mini-split systems help with efficiency and keep you comfortable at 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.
