Adding on to your Thedford home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning could be a simple way to keep your new space 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 area 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 have to have ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of opportunities 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.
Undoubtedly you’ll be done with 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 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 give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
