Are you looking to upgrade your home’s HVAC system but don’t know which route is right for you? At Air Today Heating & Cooling, we understand how important it is to make the right decision when choosing between mini split systems and central heating and air. This blog post will compare the two options, so you can determine which one best fits your needs.
Mini Split Systems
Mini split systems are becoming increasingly popular due to their energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness. They offer zone control, meaning each room or area of the house can be independently heated or cooled based on individual preferences – perfect for those larger homes that require simultaneous heating and cooling in different areas. While this flexibility allows for more personal customization, some downsides include needing a separate unit for each room and requiring professional installation – as opposed to a single central unit servicing the entire residence like in traditional HVAC systems.
Central Heating & Air
Traditional systems, also known as central heating and air, consist of one outdoor condensing unit connected to ductwork throughout your home that distributes air from a single source. The main advantage of this type of setup is its convenience – with all components located outside plus fewer moving parts overall (no individual units per room) makes it much easier to maintain. However, this system may be less energy efficient compared to mini splits, as well as not being able to adjust temperatures in multiple rooms at once due to having just a single source point!
At Air Today Heating & Cooling, we hope this guide helps in making an informed decision when deciding between mini split systems and central heating and air!
