Adding on to your Lake Worth home requires a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Smyth Air Conditioning Inc could be a simple way to keep your new room cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system consists 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 arrangement for a standard 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 options for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally needs around 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 does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your space is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
