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

Adding on to your Vero Beach home requires a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Temp Control of Vero Beach could be an affordable way to keep your new room comfortable 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 area on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a normal 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 provide you a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be using, 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 adding a mini-split system isn’t 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 further 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 space is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
