Do I Need a Ductless Mini Split in Every Room?
The short answer is no you don’t. The outdoor unit can connect to multiple indoor wall-mounted units. Most homes usually place the indoor units in the main living areas. Many homeowners use their mini-splits to zone their homes. As mentioned above, zoning allows you to decide which areas need more heating & cooling. Theoretically, you could have your home’s cooling zoned so your bedroom is slightly cooler than the living room.
Another great thing about mini split air conditioners is that they are perfect for home additions. If you’ve recently added on to your home, you don’t want to pay large amounts of money to extend existing ductwork into the new addition. A new mini-split is perfectly capable of regulating the temperature in the new addition.
