Mini-splits are notably quieter than standard forced air units. Not only are the indoor units quieter, the outdoor equipment is, as well! Because of this, you can maintain the serenity of your home and its outdoor spaces.

As forced air systems rely on constantly juggling between on and off states, they can lead to wild temperature fluctuations. Mini-splits are modulating, which means they are rarely entirely on or entirely off. Instead, they adjust their power to match the situation. If more control is needed, they increase their power; if less is needed, they decrease it. This modulation isn’t just beneficial to indoor temperatures, it can lead to much lower energy bills, as well!
