Adding on to your Phoenix home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining 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 space cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.
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 is housed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement 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 provide you 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.
Undoubtedly 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 requires 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 won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your room is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
