Advantages of Mini-Split Air Conditioning Units Mini-split air conditioning systems are good alternatives to the traditional window-mounted units. There are actually three main components of mini-split systems. One of the first component is the indoor unit, which have an evaporator coil. One indoor unit will be required every room that you want to cool. Second components are outdoor condensing units. Only a single outdoor unit is necessary for each system, which will be able to support up to 4 indoor units, which however will depend with the model. Every indoor unit will then be connected to the outdoor unit through the use of a refrigerant line set. The mini-split systems can be single or multi zone. The single zone systems to which have one indoor evaporator coil which is connected with one outdoor condensing unit. The multi zone systems are able to cool from 2 to 4 rooms and likewise consist of one outdoor condensing unit, but the number of indoor units which will be needed is going to depend on the number of rooms to which you want to be cooled. Every room that you need to be cooled will need their own indoor unit. There are different mounting systems for indoor units of these systems. Wall-mounted indoor units also are usually being used. These are actually installed with the use of mounting brackets and then are controlled by a wireless remote control. Ceiling models are also available in different styles. Ceiling models could be recessed, suspended or concealed. The ceiling suspended units are mounted on the ceiling, which helps to make removal easier. Ceiling recessed units are mounted inside the ceiling, which will help remove protrusions after the unit’s installation. Concealed units are hidden almost completely with openings for cool or warm air to be released. The different types of mounting styles will be able to allow you to choose one that best fits with the interior design needs. There in fact are some systems that have a heat pump. But, these systems are not mostly sufficient as the main heat source. This is why it’s best that they are used as supplementary heat source. There actually are many advantages on the process of installing mini-split air conditioners compared with other air conditioning alternatives. Such systems are not only small in size, but will also need ducts and gives more flexibility with interior design needs. As with what was mentioned before, this could in fact be used to heat rooms as an addition on the main use of cooling rooms. There are a lot of models that are often star rated, which is able to offer the opportunity in saving on utility costs.
