A split system or ductless air conditioner is a good choice for many homes as well as spaces like a garage or other outbuilding; this is the type of system found in hotel rooms, and they cool one area at a time, rather than pushing air through the ducts of an entire building. Note a few questions many homeowners have about split system air conditioners so you can determine if it's the right choice for your home, and know what's involved in its installation and operation.
What is a multi split?
A split system includes a front panel with the coolant and fans that produce and distribute cool air, and then it also needs a vent that goes to the outside of the home itself. A multi split system will have more than one front panel attached to that same vent. This allows you more cooling in the home without having to install several vents for each of those systems. A multi split may then be more affordable than several split systems and can mean fewer holes outside the home for all those vents.
How much damage is done to a home to install a split system?
A split system needs to vent to the outside of the home, as mentioned above, but this vent is very small; the hole needed for the vent may only be a few inches or centimeters across, so it's not very noticeable from the outside. The panel also needs a hole cut into the ceiling or wall for installation and mounting, but this panel is also somewhat small. Some systems are available with a floor mount panel, which is typically even smaller than a ceiling or wall mounted panel. Your installer can tell you the best choices for panels and system sizes, so your home suffers the least amount of damage from this installation.
Are there filters for split system units?
A split system unit will usually have filters installed along the inside of the panel, to clean the air before it's circulated in the home. If you're worried about air purity or quality, you might consider a system that comes with a stronger filter that will collect and trap more dust and debris and even microbes such as bacteria, air pollution, and other irritants. This is a good choice for those with asthma, allergies, and other such breathing problems, or who want to ensure they have the cleanest air possible in their home.

I knew that the moment we bought a house with a decent yard I'd be ready to start having kids. I loved playing outside as a kid and since we've been in this house I think the kids spend nearly as much time outside as they do outside. That lawn has seen my babies crawl, my toddlers start walkings, the kids kicking balls around and playing chasey all afternoon. Keeping the lawn soft and green is so important to me as it let's us spend all that time outside. I'm always looking for ways to make it feel and look soft and green.
