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

Adding on to your Royse City home can take a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from B&W Services could be an affordable way to keep your new room cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your expenses.

A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have 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 separate thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.

Undoubtedly you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically needs about 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 provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your area is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.

When you’re searching for the best way to heat and cool an addition to your home, call B&W Services at 972-695-2264 and we’ll help you go through all your choices.
