It’s typical for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when researching replacement systems or trying to increase indoor comfort, but it’s important not to forget about different 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 certain spaces or rooms within the home. It offers more targeted cooling or heating and saves on energy costs by focusing on the areas that need it. The indoor unit is mounted to the ceiling or wall and the cooled refrigerant is pumped in via refrigerant lines that tie in to the outdoor unit.
You may notice that particular areas of your home are not as easy to cool or perhaps you have built additions or enclosed rooms to your home that don’t include ductwork. That’s where the professionals at Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning come in. We can help you identify the issue(s) and recommend the best solution. These are some of the typical reasons homeowners consider mini-split systems for maintaining comfort in Hilton Head Island:

- Larger, Multi-Zone Living Spaces
Many mini-split systems come with multiple indoor air-handling units, providing you with additional solutions for zoning or cooling individual rooms. If you utilize more than one indoor unit, they are able to connect to the single outdoor unit.
Not only can mini-split systems support efficiency and keep you comfortable within your home, but there are cost benefits as well. According to ENERGY STAR, mini-split systems can cut cooling costs by 30 percent compared to conventional room air conditioners.
