If your existing air conditioner is on its last legs, now is the time to consider a replacement. Summers in Casselberry, FL are too hot and humid to go through with a dying AC unit and performing an installation now means sparing yourself the possibility of a breakdown right in the middle of a Florida heat wave.
When considering your options, you might want to think about a ductless mini split system, which replaces the centralized air conditioning system with a series of multiple units space throughout your home. Each unit comes with its own thermostat and control panel, and each is charged with cooling a single room or section. Ductless systems cost more to install than centralized units and they don’t make a perfect fit for every home. But as you consider your options, it pays to think about the benefits such a system might bring.
Because each room or section of your home has its own unit, you can benefit from more detailed control of your system: setting different temperatures in different rooms to meet the individual needs of their occupants. If your family squabbles about the settings on the air conditioner a lot, then a ductless system can provide an easy answer.
By extension, the improved control means you can shut off the cool air in parts of the home you aren’t using. That helps you cut down on energy use and save yourself money in the process. That works best in larger home with more rooms than it does in smaller homes which might not benefit as much from such a system. It also makes repairs easier, since chances are only one unit will break down at a time, thus costing less to fix.
