Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House06/29/2017Adding on to your Litchfield Park home requires a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Cooler Tymes LLC could be a simple way to keep your new area comfy without adding on to your list of decisions or your expenses. A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room 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 need ductwork to get the mission accomplished! Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of options 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 using, so you won’t waste energy. Undoubtedly you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally needs around a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing further construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both offer 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 into a drop ceiling.
