Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House06/29/2017Adding on to your Ronkonkoma home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Cool Power LLC could be a simple way to keep your new space comfy without adding on to your list of decisions or your budget. A mini-split system is made 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 what you’d expect for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have 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 their own thermostats. This provides 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 installing a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually requires around 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 offer 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 put together because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
