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

Adding on to your Litchfield Park home requires a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space 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 consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the area on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect 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 installing a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally needs about 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 does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your room is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
