What is a Mini-Split System?

August 18, 2017

It’s common for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when looking for replacement systems or seeking to enhance indoor comfort, but it’s important not to forget about different 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 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 tie in 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 experts at Freschi Service Experts come in. We can help you identify the issue(s) and recommend the best solution. These are some of the more common reasons homeowners consider mini-split systems for maintaining comfort in Concord:

  • Hot and Cold Rooms
  • Unoccupied Rooms
  • Additions/Renovations
  • 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 can all connect to the one 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 cut cooling costs by 30 percent compared to conventional room air conditioners.
