If you’re in need of targeted temperature control, you may have had a ductless mini split system recommended to you. Often, consumers are confused by how these systems work and what the specific advantages would be over other types of air conditioning. As you’ll find, different buildings lend themselves better to specific types of air conditioning. In the case of mini split systems, we find they are usually a better fit for an office, bedroom, finished basement, or addition.
Because mini split systems have no ducts, installation is a lot less involved. Often, all that is needed is a small hole for the conduit between indoor and outdoor units. The outdoor unit should also be placed near a drain. Additionally, you can have many indoor units hooked up to one outdoor unit, allowing for specific temperature control in different rooms. When the room is not occupied, you can simply turn off the air conditioner.
