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

Cooling

Adding on to your Westminster home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from True Heating & Cooling could be a simple way to keep your new room cozy without adding on 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 sits on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the mission accomplished!

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.

Undoubtedly you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally 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 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.
