Adding on to your Carson City home takes a bit 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 Anderson Heating & A/C could be a good way to keep your new room comfy without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.
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 sits on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect 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 leave you a lot of options for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with individual thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically 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 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 put together because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
