What is a Mini-Split System?

August 18, 2017

It’s normal 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 targeting the entire house, it works to heat or cool certain 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 attached 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 home that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the team at Abbey Air Service Experts come in. We can help you find 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 Oakville:

  • 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 use more than one indoor unit, they are able to connect to the single outdoor unit.

Not only can mini-split systems support 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.

Just like traditional air conditioners, there are several options and sizes within the mini-split family, and Abbey Air Service Experts can help you select what’s best for your house. They will evaluate factors such as room size, age of home, insulation levels, weather patterns and the number of windows. Our experts will work with you to conclude if a mini-split system would work for you and assist with finding one that appropriately meets your needs.
