Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House06/29/2017Adding on to your Corpus Christi home takes a great deal 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 McNatt Inc could be a good way to keep your new room comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your expenses. A mini-split system consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to accomplish the mission! 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 provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be using, 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 installing a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally needs around 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 designed because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
