“A system upgrade and a smart home thermostat equals energy savings. The most energy-efficient heating and cooling products on the market, ductless mini-split systems, can save as much as 25 percent on your utility bill. An efficiently controlled thermostat could save an additional 10 percent a year. And professional expertise is key because a system can lose 20 to 40 percent of its energy efficiency from poor installation.
How do mini-splits work? Thin copper tubing is used to pump refrigerant from an outdoor compressor directly into an indoor air-handling unit, where the air is quietly distributed to the interior space. This eliminates the need for basement or attic evaporators and bulky, expensive ductwork. Mini-splits are easy to install and usually require only a 3- to 4-inch hole through a wall or ceiling to connect the indoor and outdoor units.”

Mini-split systems are a great way to keep your own home cool without needing to tear it apart. They aren’t nearly as large as window units and resemble more of a protruding vent. As you’ve just read, they are highly efficient and quiet – once you have them installed, you probably won’t even notice!
