Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House

Cooling

Adding on to your Marshfield home can take a great deal 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 House of Heating Incorporated could be a good way to keep your new room comfortable without adding on to your list of decisions or your budget.

A mini-split system consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need 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 areas that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.

There’s no doubt that 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 is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically needs roughly a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing more construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your room 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.
