Adding on to your Mechanicsburg home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from H & H Service Company could be a good way to keep your new room comfortable without adding on to your list of decisions or your cost.
A mini-split system is made 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 setup for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of opportunities 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 rooms that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally requires 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 give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your area 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.
