mini split systems

Winter is just around the corner, and it’s time to start thinking about heating your home during those chilly months. One option to consider is a mini split system. We have all our heating and cooling units serviced by Carrier technicians, so we already know that they are reliable and efficient.

What is a Mini Split System?

A mini split system provides both heating and cooling for an individual room or zone of your house instead of trying to cool or heat the whole house at once. They work efficiently because they only operate when they’re needed and remove heat/cold from a smaller space.

How do Mini Split Systems Work?

mini split systems use different techniques to provide heating or cooling to the rooms in your home. For example, some systems have a separate air handler and an indoor evaporator, while others are all in one units. Another technique is using the heat pump or an outside compressor.

Advantages of a Mini Split

The biggest advantage of a mini split system is that it can be installed in any room, even basements and garages. They don’t require duct work and they can cool or heat the area efficiently because they don’t have to distribute air throughout the home. Another advantage is that they are much more quiet than central systems. Finally, you can use the remote control to adjust the temperature when you need it.

Disadvantages of a Mini Split

The main disadvantage of a mini split system is its cost. They are expensive to install and can be too big for some homes. Another disadvantage is that you need to run the heating or cooling system during the whole winter while you’re home, even if you only need it part time.


Overall, a mini split system is a great option for those who need to heat or cool only one room. They provide efficient heating and cooling because they don’t require ductwork and their operation time is more limited than central systems. Despite their disadvantages, mini splits are great options to be installed in your home.
