One Way To Fix An Uneven Cooling Issue Is With A Mini Split System

Mini Split HVAC - Masters Heating


Are some rooms in your house always warmer or colder than the others? Do you notice big differences in temperatures from floor to floor? Uneven cooling is a common problem for many homeowners. Some of it is unavoidable…. After all, cold air falls and hot air rises, which means that lower level rooms will be cooler than upper. Uneven cooling is also a result of external natural factors such as the sun shining on one side of the house longer than others. Unfortunately, uneven cooling issues are often caused by a faulty or damaged HVAC system.

A thorough analysis of your system by the professionals at Masters will reveal the problem and one answer may be the implementation of a mini split system aimed specifically at cooling the problem area or room. Mini splits cooling systems have two main components: an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor air-blowing unit, connected by a conduit that houses the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing and a condensate drain. Like regular A/C systems, the outdoor compressor unit pumps and cools the system’s refrigerant through copper lines to the indoor unit. A big advantage of mini splits are their small size and flexibility for targeting cooling for individual rooms. Also, mini splits have no ducts, which means you don’t have to worry about potential energy losses associated with a leaky or insecure duct system.

Repairing existing ductwork can also help with uneven cooling as well as cut down on wasted energy. As much as 20-30% of the air that moves through a typical house is lost due to leaks, holes, and defective ductwork. Many homeowners hire HVAC professionals to resolve ductwork issues because ductwork is often concealed behind walls, ceilings and in attics and hard to get to.
