What are Mini-Split Air Conditioning Systems? Mini-split air conditioning units are considered good alternatives with the traditional window-mounted units. There in fact are three main components to which mini-split systems have. One of the first component is the indoor unit, which have an evaporator coil. A single unit is needed for every room that you want to cool. The second component is an outdoor condensing unit. Only one outdoor unit is going to be needed for every system, which could support up to 4 indoor units, which is going to depend on the model. Each indoor unit then is going to be connected with the outdoor units with the use of a refrigerant line set. The mini-split systems can be single or multi zone. The single zone systems have one indoor evaporator coil that’s connected to one outdoor condensing unit. The multi zone systems can actually cool from 2 to 4 rooms and also consist of one outdoor condensing unit, but the number of indoor units that’s needed will depend with the number of rooms that you wish to be cooled. Each 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 are most often the ones that are being used. These also are installed through the use of mounting brackets and are being controlled by a wireless remote control. Ceiling models are also available in different styles. The ceiling models can be suspended, recessed or concealed. The ceiling suspended units are being mounted on the ceiling, which will then help in making the 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 various types of mounting styles will be able to allow you in choosing one which best fits with your interior design needs. There are some systems that have a heat pump. These systems are however not mostly sufficient with 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. These systems not only are small in size, but this will 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 actually are a lot of models which are usually star rated, which will be able to offer the chance to save on utility costs.
