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

Adding on to your Booneville home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC could be a good way to keep your new space cozy without adding things 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 housed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the job done!

Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.

There’s no doubt that 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 usually requires roughly a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing additional construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your space is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
