It’s common for people to immediately think of traditional air conditoners when shopping for replacement systems or trying to improve indoor comfort, but it’s important not to forget about alternative options such as a mini-split system.
Mini-split systems are a ductless form of heating and cooling. Instead of concentrating on the entire house, it works to heat or cool particular spaces or rooms within the home. It offers more targeted cooling or heating and saves on energy costs by focusing on the rooms and space that need it. The indoor unit is attached to the ceiling or wall and the cooled refrigerant is pumped in via refrigerant lines that run 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 experts at A1 Chesney Service Experts come in. We can help you find the issue(s) and recommend the best solution. These are some of the most popular reasons homeowners consider mini-split systems for maintaining comfort in Calgary:

Many mini-split systems come with multiple indoor air-handling units, providing you with additional solutions 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.
