When Should I Consider Mini-Splits?
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. Or, maybe you’re renovating an older home with no ductwork and want to install a new, efficient, low maintenance system. All these scenarios have one thing in common: they’re great instances for investing in a ductless mini-split system. While they’re extremely efficient and provide consistent room comfort, the decision to install is different for every homeowner.
What is a mini-split system?
If you don’t know what a mini-split system is, let’s go over that first. A mini-split system is a ductless heat pump or air conditioner that combines 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. mini-splits

What are the advantages of a mini-split system?
Mini-splits obviously have advantages in certain situations over other comfort systems. If you think a mini-split system may be better for your situation, check out the advantages below:
- 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.
