Do you need to add air conditioning to a new addition or to a part of your home not previously cooled? You may find that your old A/C can’t handle the new space or that it is impossible to run new ductwork to this new space. The advantages of split air conditioning systems make them a viable option for almost any cooling need you might have.
Advantages to Consider
Here are four advantages homeowners get when they install split A/C systems:
- Easy installation is possible in almost any situation. There is no ductwork involved with a split system. The inside unit can hang from the ceiling or on the wall. The outdoor unit can sit up to 100 feet from the inside unit. A small hole in the wall for the refrigerant pipe and wiring is all that is required.
- Quiet operation makes it an option for any room in the home, including the bedroom. The indoor units operate with only a quiet hum. The outside units can be placed where its noise causes minimal disturbance.
- More cost-effective than one central A/C unit is. Each room the split system cools has its own thermostat, which can be programmed individually for the occupant(s) of that space. That means the room is only cooled when it’s needed. The inside units use smaller fans which use less energy than a central A/C blower. Units often run at different times, which keeps energy use even lower.
- Heating capacity is built-in with these split systems. Most split air conditioning systems are actually heat pumps. This makes it possible to heat and cool the space year-round. If you are adding the system to a basement, attic, or garage space, this can extend the usability of the space to all four seasons.
