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

Cooling

Adding on to your Osceola County 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 Osceola Air, LLC could be a good way to keep your new space comfy without adding on to your list of decisions or your cost.

A mini-split system consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the area on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to get the mission accomplished!

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 separate 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.

There’s no doubt that you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically needs 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your area is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
