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

Cooling

Adding on to your East Bernard home can take a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service could be an affordable way to keep your new area comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.

A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!

Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of flexibility 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.

There’s no doubt that you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is done. 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 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 allow for flexibility in how your space is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
