It’s normal for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when looking for replacement systems or trying to increase indoor comfort, but it’s important not to forget about other options such as a mini-split system.
Mini-split systems are a ductless form of heating and cooling. Instead of targeting the entire house, it works to heat or cool particular spaces or rooms within the home. It provides more targeted cooling or heating and saves on energy costs by focusing on the rooms and space that need it. The indoor unit is affixed to the ceiling or wall and the cooled refrigerant is pumped in via refrigerant lines that connect to the outdoor unit.
You may notice that particular areas of your home are harder to cool or perhaps you have built additions or enclosed rooms to your space that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the experts at Roland J. Down Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning come in. We can help you recognize the issue(s) and provide the best solution. These are some of the most popular reasons homeowners consider mini-split systems for maintaining comfort in Albany:

Many mini-split systems come with multiple indoor air-handling units, providing you with more options for zoning or cooling individual rooms. If you use more than one indoor unit, they will all be able to connect to the single outdoor unit.
