Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House06/29/2017Adding on to your Chatsworth home requires a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from True Temp Heating & Air Inc could be a good way to keep your new area comfy without adding on to your list of decisions or your expenses. 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 is placed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to get the job done! Mini-split systems are small and leave 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 rooms that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy. There’s no doubt that you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually means 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.
