When you’re looking for a way to keep just part of your house cool this summer, you might want to consider a mini split air conditioning system. These systems strike a happy medium between individual window or wall air conditioners and central air conditioning, in terms of size, installation cost and operating cost.

All air conditioners work the same way, whether they’re self-contained in a small window unit or set up in a larger split system. There are three basic components to the system: a compressor, a condenser and an evaporator.
