Possible Spots for a Ductless Mini-Split
Ductless mini-splits are becoming an increasingly popular option for homeowners who want to cool a specific area of their home without needing to use a window AC. They are also commonly used in place of central air conditioning systems, as they provide similar performance and improved efficiency.
That being said, if you’ve wondered where you might fit a ductless mini-split (called that because the unit doesn’t require ductwork), here are some options where it would be a good fit.
Your garage usually doesn’t need an HVAC component, especially if it’s small. But if you spend a lot of time there, especially during the summer, you may want to consider installing a mini-split. The unit doesn’t take up much space and can operate separately from your home's main cooling system, so you don’t waste energy when the room is not in use.
Similarly, if you use your shed often for working or different projects, it may be smart to install a mini-split there as well. Most sheds are detached from your home and would be unable to connect to ductwork, so a mini-split would be the most efficient option.
If you’ve added onto your home, you have essentially two options for providing temperature control—you could add to your existing ductwork or you could add a standalone unit. Much of this depends on the cost estimates and your home layout. Consult with your local HVAC technician to decide on the best option.
But, a mini-split is a great way to exercise the standalone option.
Basements are often slower to react to temperature changes. In the early summer, you can probably escape to your basement for relief when it gets too hot upstairs. A mini-split is a great option for the basement as well since it can be turned on and off as necessary and not waste energy.
