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

Adding on to your Lake Worth home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out 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 good way to keep your new space cozy without adding on to your list of decisions or your cost.

A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect 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 leave you a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with individual thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be using, 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 putting in a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually requires 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 won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your area is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.

When you’re on the lookout for the best way to heat and cool an addition to your home, call Smyth Air Conditioning Inc at 561-533-6066 and we’ll help you navigate all your options.
