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

Cooling

Adding on to your Marietta home takes a great deal 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 Boyles Mechanical LLC could be a good way to keep your new area cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.

A mini-split system consists 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 normal 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 their own thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be using, 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 putting in a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically requires roughly a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing further construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your room is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
