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

Adding on to your Middle Georgia home takes a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Air Concepts of Middle Georgia could be an affordable way to keep your new area cozy without adding on to your list of decisions or your cost.

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 need ductwork to get the job done!

Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of flexibility 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 rooms that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.

Without a doubt 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 around 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 mean you have flexibility in how your room is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
