Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House06/29/2017Adding on to your Reeds Spring home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from All Seasons Comfort Systems Inc could be a simple way to keep your new area cozy without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget. A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to accomplish the mission! Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy. Without a doubt you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually means around a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing additional construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your space is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
