Adding on to your Shelby home requires a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Hopper Heating and Air could be a simple way to keep your new room comfortable without adding things to your list of decisions or your expenses.
A mini-split system consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to accomplish the mission!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of opportunities 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 areas that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually means 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 doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your space is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
