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

Cooling

Adding on to your Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Innovative Mechanical, LLC could be an affordable way to keep your new space cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.

A mini-split system is made 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 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 individual thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.

There’s no doubt that 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 not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically requires 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 provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your room is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
