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

Cooling

Adding on to your Fort Worth home can take a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Breeze Air and Heat could be an affordable way to keep your new space comfortable without adding things 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 placed 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 mission accomplished!

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 gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.

There’s no doubt that you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually means 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 provide 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 room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
