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

Cooling

Adding on to your Front Royal home can take a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Dave's Diversified Services could be a simple way to keep your new space comfy without adding much 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 is placed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a typical 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 opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with individual 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 over all of the construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically means 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 give 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 put together 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 Dave's Diversified Services at 540-369-3971 and we’ll help you go through all your choices.
