Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House

Cooling

Adding on to your Englewood home takes a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Symbiont Service Corp could be an affordable way to keep your new area comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your expenses.

A mini-split system consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed 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 offer a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas 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 done. The good news is that adding a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically means roughly a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing further construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your area 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.
