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

Adding on to your Robstown home requires 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 things 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 what you’d expect for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need 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 individual thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms 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 done. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is minimally 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t 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 put on a drop ceiling.
