Adding on to your Dresden home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from McFadden Heating & Cooling could be a good way to keep your new area cozy without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have 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 separate thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally needs 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’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 hooked on a drop ceiling.
