What is a Mini-Split System?

August 18, 2017

It’s common for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when researching replacement systems or trying to enhance 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 concentrating on the entire house, it works to heat or cool particular spaces or rooms within the home. It offers 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 specific areas of your home are not as easy to cool or perhaps you have built additions or enclosed rooms to your space that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the experts at Komfort Air come in. We can help you find the issue(s) and advise the best solution. These are some of the more common reasons homeowners consider mini-split systems for maintaining comfort in Mint Hill:

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 one outdoor unit.
