Adding on to your East Bernard home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from E.B. Air, LLC could be a simple way to keep your new space cozy without adding much 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 housed 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 opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be utilizing, 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 finished. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is not 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 provide 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 area is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
