Mini split air conditioners, also known as ductless air conditioners, are another type of cooling system used in many homes. These devices function as heaters and air conditioners, using outdoor and indoor units to heat and cool your home. But are they more energy efficient than traditional ACs? Read this guide to learn more!
What Are Mini Split ACs?
As previously mentioned, mini split AC units are dual-function heaters and air conditioners. They bring warm outside air from the outdoor unit and convert it to cool air via heat exchangers. You can alternatively convert cool outside air to warm air in the wintertime, like with a heat pump. These are ductless systems, meaning you don’t need to attach them to air ducts to operate.
Are They Energy Efficient?
Are mini-split cooling systems more energy efficient than other types of systems, like central AC or wall-mounted units? In some ways, mini splits are more energy efficient because they use smaller air handlers and evaporator coils. Naturally, it uses less energy to expel cold air throughout the house.
However, you must install multiple mini-splits to achieve multizone cooling throughout the home. Improper installation can result in energy loss and higher utility bills. Therefore, install mini-splits that fit the size of the individual room. Then, you can control the temperature once the system works.
