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

Cooling

Adding on to your Stuart home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Breathe Healthier Air Inc could be a good way to keep your new area cozy 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 area on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the mission accomplished!

Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of opportunities 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 spaces that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.

Undoubtedly you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually means about 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your space 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.
