Adding on to your Hodgenville home can take a bit 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 Phelps Heating & Cooling could be a simple way to keep your new space comfortable 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 room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms 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 finished. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally means roughly a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing additional 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 permit you to have flexibility in how your room is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
