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

Adding on to your Macon home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing 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 an affordable way to keep your new space comfortable 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 room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits 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 job done!

Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of options for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with individual thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be using, 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 putting in a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically means about 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 give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not 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 hooked on a drop ceiling.
