Your Uneven Cooling Issues May Be Solved By A Mini Split System

A common complaint from homeowners with central air conditioning systems during the summer months is uneven cooling throughout the house. You may notice that some areas or rooms in your house are always too hot or too cold or that temperatures vary between certain areas or floors. Some differences in room temperatures are normal as cool air falls and hot air rises. External natural factors such as sun shining predominantly on one side of the house can also explain variances. But these issues can also be caused by an inefficient or damaged air conditioning system, which our experts can identify by using flow hood analysis or other air diagnostics processes.

One solution to an inefficient system can be the implementation of a mini split system designated to cool a certain problem room or area. Like traditional central forced air systems, mini splits have two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser, and an indoor air-handling unit. A conduit, which houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and a condensate drain, connects the two units. The outdoor compressor unit pumps and cools the system’s refrigerant through copper lines to the indoor unit. The main advantages of mini splits are their small size and flexibility for zoning or heating and cooling individual rooms. Also, since mini splits have no ducts, energy losses associated with ductwork is not an issue.

Another remedy for uneven cooling is duct sealing, which can also help with utility costs. As much as 20-30% of the air that moves through a normal systems ductwork is s lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. This in turn leads to higher utility bills and difficulty in keeping the house cool. Many homeowners choose to hire professionals for duct improvement projects because ductwork is often concealed behind walls, ceilings and in attics.
