The Mini-Split Alternative
For those of you looking into adding cooling to your older home you may have come to the conclusion that a rapidly rising new solution on the scene is the mini-split system. A favorite among centuries old European homes because there is a void when it comes to retrofitting an old home or building for modern cooling, this alternative is rapidly gaining favor in The United States.
The Fujitsu Halcyon mini-split system is capable of providing individual room temperatures. If opting for a heat pump unit, you could have this unit provide both heating and cooling. Systems allow for a peaceful inside environment because components like compressors and motors are installed outdoors.
Mini splits use a process called inverter technology. This technology is like cruise control for your heating or cooling system. Compressors run only as fast as they need in order to handle the heating or cooling demand. They can handle greater extremes in temperature, are smoother and more stable in operation, and reach the desired temperature more quickly than conventional air conditioners.
Another huge benefit to the mini-split is their efficiency. And efficiency translates directly into money savings. Some utility companies offer rebates on these types of systems because of their efficiency. Contact your utility company, or go to www.ujitsugeneral.com/utility-rebates.htm
Mini-splits are Energy Star rated.
As much as half of the energy used in your home goes to heating and cooling. Choosing the right cooling approach can have a big effect on your utility bills — and your comfort.
