Adding on to your Brookfield home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Central Air LLC could be a good way to keep your new area cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your cost.
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 what you’d expect 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 leave you a lot of flexibility 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 areas 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 completed. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually needs roughly 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 won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your space is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
