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

Cooling

Adding on to your Kennesaw and surrounding areas home takes a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Total Comfort Solutions could be a good way to keep your new room 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 room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!

Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This gives 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 done with 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 typically requires 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 won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
