Mini-split systems can help save energy

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

Adding on to your Englewood home can take a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from TemperaturePro® could be a simple way to keep your new room comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.

A mini-split system consists 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 what you’d expect for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the mission accomplished!

Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of options for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with individual thermostats. This provides 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 tired of 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 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 doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your space is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
