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

Adding on to your Kingsville home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC could be an affordable way to keep your new area comfy without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.

A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the mission accomplished!

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 offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be utilizing, 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 finished. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually needs about 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 allow for flexibility in how your room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.

When you’re on the lookout for the best way to heat and cool an addition to your home, call Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC at 361-214-1203 and we’ll help you navigate all your possibilities.
