In Barbados, it seems the temperature is almost always warm, requiring continuous use of your A/C unit. Whether you have rooms or areas in your home that seem a little warmer than the rest of the house or you are simply looking for a more efficient way to increase the cooling comfort of your home, a ductless or mini split air conditioning system could be the way to go.
What Is A Mini Split Air Conditioner?
A mini-split air conditioning system is a ductless form of cooling that focuses on individual rooms and spaces, rather than an entire home, such as central air conditioning would. Mini-split systems are more adaptable and energy efficient than traditional central air condition systems and are simple to install since there isn’t any ductwork involved. These systems pump air straight to mounted air handling units that typically are equipped with wireless temperature control systems.

Mini-split systems are by no means one-size-fits-all, nor are they all made for the same size room. Comparable to traditional air conditioners, a mini-split system should be installed to cool on area, such as a living room or bedroom. Doing so could mean more efficient production and comfort for you, which might also lead to lower energy costs. These air conditioning units are commonly used for:
- Hot rooms or areas
- Home additions or renovations without central air
- Enclosed patios
- Homes without space for air conditioning ductwork
- Large, multi-zone living spaces
These ductless systems work by utilizing a process that only creates the amount of cold air needed to achieve or maintain the desired temperature. That said, in addition to a properly placed system, a correctly sized system is still essential to attain all of the efficiency benefits.
