Mini-split systems can help save energy

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

Adding on to your La Puente home requires a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Temp Air System Inc could be a simple way to keep your new room cozy without adding much to your list of decisions or your expenses.

A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to accomplish the mission!

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 separate thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.

There’s no doubt that you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally means about 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 allow for 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.
