Adding on to your Stuart home can take a bit 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 Breathe Healthier Air could be a good way to keep your new area cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your cost.
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 sits on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require 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 individual 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.
Without a doubt 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 minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually requires 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 mean you have flexibility in how your space is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
