Adding on to your Macon home requires a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Air Temperature Control could be a simple way to keep your new area comfortable without adding things to your list of decisions or your cost.
A mini-split system consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed 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 leave you a lot of opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas 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 adding a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically means around 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your area is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
