Mini splits are becoming increasingly popular in the Pacific Northwest. These flexible units allow you to efficiently heat or cool your home, and some even give you room-by-room comfort control. With a mini split installation in your home, you can enjoy greater comfort control and reduced energy bills.

Below, we explain when it makes sense to install a mini split and tell you about some of the top units available right now.

Why Install a Mini Split?

There are many situations where it makes sense to install a mini split:

You want heating and cooling in one unit: Many mini splits can be used for both heating and cooling. They can also improve your air quality. As air passes through the mini split system, it goes through a high-performance air filter that reduces pollen, dust, and pollutants in your air.

You need something that works in your space: You can install a mini split in just about any space, no matter how big or small. Many mini splits are compact and even relatively stylish. The outdoor unit can be as much as 50 feet away from the indoor unit, so you can install a mini split in a front room while keeping the outdoor unit on the back side of your house. You can hang one from the wall or fit a floor unit under a window. 

You care about energy efficiency: Since mini splits work by moving heat from one area to another rather than by creating heat, like a refrigerator, they can often be more energy-efficient than other heating and cooling options.

You like temperature control at the room level: If you choose a multi-split zoned system, like the Daiken MXS Series Multi-zone, you can heat or cool individual rooms with separate thermostats. Your family will enjoy better comfort control, and you’ll be able to save by only heating the rooms you use most.

Mini Split Installation: Which Model Should You Get?

Here are some of the best mini split models you can get from Paragon right now:

Daiken 19 Series

The Daiken 19 Series is a quiet, Energy Star rated mini split that mounts on your wall. You can install it high up and out of the way where it won’t detract from the decor. It’s a great option for nearly any space, including primarily living areas, attics, basements, rooms with poor airflow, garages, and home additions.

Daiken Aurora – Floor Mount

The Daiken Aurora is even more efficient than the 19 series. You can set it up either on the floor or low on a wall, potentially beneath a window. It is an effective and efficient heating system even in extreme weather conditions down to -13°F.

Daiken MXS Series Multi-zone (2, 3, 4 or 5 zones)

This multi-split system is a great option for heating individual rooms separately, potentially to different temperatures. You can connect several indoor units to a single outdoor unit, including wall mount units, ceiling cassette units, slim duct units, or a combination of all of the above. These units work well for new build and renovation projects.

This system is also highly efficient at up to 20.2 SEER and 12.5 HSPF. With utility costs rising, you’ll appreciate those energy savings.
