Adding on to your Huffman 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 things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Air Houston Mechanical LLC could be a simple way to keep your new room comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your expenses.
A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement 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 leave you a lot of options for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with individual thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt 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 isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally requires 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 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 space is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
