Adding on to your Siloam Springs home requires a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Siloam Springs Heating & AC could be a good way to keep your new room comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.
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 is housed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of flexibility 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 in, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally requires roughly a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing more construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your space 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.
