Adding on to your Troy home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Edington Heating & Cooling Inc could be a simple way to keep your new room comfortable 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 space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a normal 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 offer a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally needs roughly a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing further 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 allow for flexibility in how your room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
