8 Best Places To Install A Mini-Split

Keeping your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter shouldn’t be a luxury -- but, too often, ducted heating and air systems don’t effectively circulate air throughout your entire home. The end result: some rooms or entire sections of your house are sweltering in the summer and freezing in the winter.

While extending existing HVAC system into a new area or making major adjustments can be challenging or, even, costly, there are solutions to ensure better climate control year-round. For starters, consider a mini split.

Mini-Splits: Affordable Climate Control for Your Entire Home

A mini-split is a completely ductless heating and cooling system that can be easily setup anywhere in your home or office. They operate as their own self-contained AC systems, mounted cleanly on a wall and allowing you to instantly heat or cool an area based on that specific area’s needs and the preferences of whoever spends time in the space.

Not only is this a convenient way to make a space comfortable, it can also dramatically reduce energy usage and your heating and cooling bill.

Mini-splits are perfect for a wide range of spaces:


Everyone loves the warmth and brightness of a relaxing sunroom. But that sun has the potential to make your sunroom into your own private oven. A mini-split will instantly leave the sunroom feeling cool and pleasant—the perfect getaway.


If you love working in the shed, you know that summertime can often be a challenge as the thermometer rises and your working oasis becomes a desert. Installing a mini-split can keep your shed cool in the summertime, and warm in the winter.

Home Offices

Your office is a place where you should feel comfortable, pleasant, and productive—and temperature has a lot to do with that. A mini-split allows you to set the perfect temperature for your preferences so that you can maximize comfort and productivity throughout the day.

Guest Rooms

Just because the temperature is right for you doesn’t mean it will be perfect for your guests. Allow them to visit in comfort by installing a mini-split, which will allow them to set their own private temperature preferences while staying.


No matter what your full HVAC setup may be, the basement always seems to abide by its own temperature settings outside your control. Not anymore— with a mini-split, you can ensure that your basement is exactly the temperature you want it to be.

We had them come out to do a heat adjustment and Manny noticed a gas smell that we had apparently gotten used to. A quick evaluation and he discovered a gas leak in our stove. Had he not spoken up and gone above and beyond, we could have been in danger. I’m so grateful he went above and beyond for us! Seriously some of the best service I could have ever asked for!

Home Additions

Adding a new section to your home doesn’t have to mean going through the complicated process of extending your HVAC system. Simply add a mini-split and enjoy total climate control in your newest addition to the home.


Most garages don’t receive temperature and climate control via your home’s built-in HVAC system. That’s why a mini-split can be an effective solution, allowing you to spend time in your garage comfortably even in the dead of summer or middle of winter.


Some people like to sleep cool, while others prefer to be cozy and warm. Whatever your preference and the preferences of your family members, you can sleep in comfort thanks to an individual mini-split inside the bedroom.
