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

June 29, 2017

Adding on to your Port St. Lucie home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Custom Air Systems Inc could be an affordable way to keep your new space comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.

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 the arrangement for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!

Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of options 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 spaces that you’ll be in, 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 installing a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually needs around a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing more construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you 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.

When you’re searching for the best way to heat and cool an addition to your home, call Custom Air Systems Inc at 772-247-2283 and we’ll help you sort through all your choices.
