Mini-split systems can help save energy

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

Adding on to your Orrville 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 Daniel's Heating - Cooling & Electric could be a good way to keep your new space comfy without adding things to your list of decisions or your expenses.

A mini-split system is composed 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 the arrangement for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the job done!

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 their own thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.

Without a doubt you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that adding a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically needs 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 doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your space is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
