Mini-split systems can help save energy

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

Adding on to your San Angelo home requires a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Air-Dynamics Inc could be a simple way to keep your new area comfy without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.

A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to accomplish the mission!

Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of options 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 spaces that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.

There’s no doubt that you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is done. 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your area is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
