2 Benefits Of Installing A Mini-Split AC System In Your Older Home


If you live in an older house that does not currently have central air conditioning, you may be thinking about having it installed. However, because of the age of the home and structural issues, you may have been told that a conventional system will not work, leaving you to believe that you will have to rely on expensive window units.

However, instead of settling for window units, you may want to consider another option. Below are a couple of benefits of having a professional install a mini-split air conditioning system in your older home.

1. Individual Units Are Installed in Each Separate Room, Allowing for More Efficient, Cost-effective Cooling of Your Home

One benefit of installing a mini-split AC system in your home is that the system uses individual units that are installed in each room. Unlike a conventional central air system that only has one thermostat that controls the entire house, the mini-split system has controls in each of the rooms where units are installed.

Because you can control the settings for each room, you can keep areas where you do not go into often warmer and main living areas cooler. Because you are not cooling unused areas, this system allows for a more efficient, cost-effective cooling system for your house

2. Units Do Not Require Ductwork, Letting You Install Them in Rooms That Currently Have No Cooling due to Structural Issues

Another benefit of installing a mini-split system to cool your home is that the units do not require ductwork. Especially if you live in an older home, you may not want to tear out the walls to install ducts. Or, there may be structural issues preventing it, such as old concrete floors or too little space inside the walls.

However, each unit of the mini-split system is ductless. You will be able to fully cool your home without having to worry about structural issues or demolishing the old walls.

If you are looking for a way to cool your home that does not require the installation of ductwork, consider having a mini-split air conditioning system installed. The units can be placed in rooms that cannot be cooled conventionally because of concrete structures or other issues. Each unit also cools only one room for more efficient, cost-effective cooling.
