Adding on to your Marshfield home takes a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from House of Heating Incorporated could be a good way to keep your new space comfortable without adding things 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 placed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with individual thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be tired of 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 typically requires 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 provide 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 area is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
