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

Cooling

Adding on to your Branchville home requires a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. could be an affordable way to keep your new space comfy without adding on to your list of decisions or your cost.

A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to accomplish the mission!

Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of options for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.

There’s no doubt that you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that installing a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally means 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your room is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
