It’s common for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when researching replacement systems or trying to increase indoor comfort, but it’s important not to forget about different 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 specific spaces or rooms within the home. It provides more targeted cooling or heating and saves on energy costs by focusing on the locations that need it. The indoor unit is affixed 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 certain areas of your home are more difficult to cool or perhaps you have built additions or enclosed rooms to your home that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the team at Service Experts come in. We can help you identify the issue(s) and recommend the best solution.
