Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House06/29/2017Adding on to your Boynton Beach home takes 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 good way to keep your new area cozy without adding on to your list of decisions or your expenses. A mini-split system is made 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 typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to accomplish the mission! 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 areas 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 completed. The good news is that adding a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually means 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 allow for flexibility in how your room 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.
