Mini-split systems can help save energy

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

Adding on to your Phoenix home takes a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc could be a simple way to keep your new room cozy without adding things 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 the setup for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to get the job done!

Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of opportunities 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 utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.

Without a doubt you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is not 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 provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your room is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
