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

June 29, 2017

Adding on to your Boynton Beach home requires a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from A2Z Air Inc could be a simple way to keep your new area cozy without adding on 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 placed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have 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 gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be in, 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 installing a mini-split system isn’t 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 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 allow for flexibility in how your room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
