Adding on to your Tucker home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from ACS Heating and Air Conditioning could be an affordable way to keep your new room cozy 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 sits on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to accomplish the mission!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with individual thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually requires around a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing additional 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 mean you have flexibility in how your room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
