How It Works
You installed the large windows in your home office to maximize the natural light provided by the Florida sunshine. Unfortunately, you neglected to consider the impact of the blazing sun on the temperature of such a small room. You combat the heat by turning up the AC. Meanwhile, the dining room on the other side of your room is still comfortably shrouded in shade, and soon enough your wife is complaining that icicles are about to start growing from the ceiling fan.
Now, imagine your home with custom temperature control. After lingering over breakfast with your family, you slip away to your home office to get some work done. The day is proving the weatherman right with temperatures warming quickly into the nineties. The office is already feeling the heat, so you grab your personal remote and turn up the AC. You close the door behind you, and no one is affected by the temperature change except you.
It seems too good to be true, but Mitsubishi Electric Mini-Split Ductless AC systems are designed for optimum comfort in each room or zone. Much like a central AC system, a mini-split ductless system consists of an internal and external unit. However, the technology provided by the indoor units makes all the difference. While a central air conditioning system depends on one indoor unit to push cooled air through ducts to each room, a mini-split system may have as many as four indoor units. Each of these units is equipped with its own fan, evaporator coil, and (perhaps most importantly) personal remote.
Separate indoor units provide your household with more flexibility than ever before when it comes to meeting individual AC needs. Maybe your family members prefer radically different temperatures for a good night's sleep. Perhaps your teenager blasts the air conditioner when he invites his team members over after a game. Separate indoor units even give you the ability to only use the air you really need. You can turn off units in the rooms you aren't currently using and keep the rest of the house completely comfortable. Whether your goal is to eliminate those hot spots created by elements beyond your control or to finally end the family temperature dispute, a mini ductless system could be the solution.
