The summer season brings with it longer days, outdoor sports, get-togethers, and vacations. However, a downside to summer is the hot, humid weather that most of the South is known for, and staying comfortable can be a challenge. During these times, a homeowner may decide to look at the option of cooling their garage or a backyard shop. While many portable cooling solutions are noisy, bulky and need to be placed inside a window, there is a better option for this type of situation. A ductless mini-split system will actually not only cool a small area or room but it will also provide heating in the winter months.
Ductless Mini-Split System
- Ductless cooling and heating: The mini-split works well for a room or area that would not already have existing ductwork.
- Solution to a problem: This type of comfort solution works well for small areas that need conditioned air such as a bonus room, sunroom, small addition to a home or even a garage or small shop.
- How they work: The mini-split system links the small room to an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air handling evaporator unit. The air from the room is absorbed by the system coils. Then the refrigerant transfers that hot air in summer to the outdoor unit. It basically works very much like a regular central HVAC system but without the ducts.
- Maintenance: Regular maintenance and service is needed on the mini-split system just as it is with larger HVAC systems to keep the system running at its peak performance and extend the life of the system.
