Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House06/29/2017Adding on to your East Hanover home requires a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Effective Service Group, LLC could be a simple 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 area on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to accomplish the mission! Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas 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 finished. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically means roughly 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 put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
