Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House06/29/2017Adding on to your Mobile home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Farnell Heating & Air Conditioning Inc could be a simple way to keep your new room cozy without adding on to your list of decisions or your expenses. 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 standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the job done! 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 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 finished. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally 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 provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your space is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
