If you are remodeling your home or adding another room, it is important to consider a new AC unit. The most common AC unit being used today is the ductless split-system because it doesn’t require extensive changes in a home’s architectural design. More importantly, these systems are more efficient and affordable. They are also more convenient to operate automatically.
Choosing an AC Unit with Home Decor in Mind
While this unit is a great idea, it is important to consider the impact it will have on your interior decor. Interior designers have come up with contemporary design ideas that you can effectively use to blend in the mini-split into your home’s decor.
When you are buying a split unit, consider the following:
- Color: It is important to choose a mini-split in the color that is dominant in your house. It is also advisable to go for mild colors as opposed to bright colors, as this makes the unit less visible. Your AC unit can even become a focal point of your decor depending on how you integrate it.
- Size: There are different sizes of mini-splits in the market. It is important to consider performance when installing a ductless split AC unit, but you should also have in mind the impact it will have on your decor. Go for a unit that is suitable to cool or warm your home, but that is not large to ruin your home’s decor.
With this in mind, it is also important not to compromise on performance just to get a size that fits your decor. This is where the services of a contractor who specializes in AC repair come in handy. These experts will help you determine how many BTUs you need based on the room area. They can help you choose a size that snuggly fits into your home without affecting the appearance.
It is also important to talk to your home’s designer in order to get ideas on how best you can integrate the new air handler without compromising on your home’s decor. These experts are highly exposed to different ideas already in the market and they can also customize ideas to suit your home. The idea is to ensure your home stays comfortable while at the same time looking great.
Some of the areas commonly used to hide a mini-split include above doors or windows, on top of bookcases, above cabinets and even above your bed. It is important to remember that every home is unique, hence the need to use an interior designer you have worked with before to tailor a solution that fits you. For instance, a recessed wall is a great idea for a homeowner but a renter doesn’t have this option.
Installing a ductless split system for your home is a great idea, but it should perfectly blend with your home decor. By relying on professionals for expertise, you will find an AC system that not only performs optimally but also adds a touch of elegance to your home.
