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

Adding on to your Manassas Park home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Woody's Sudden Service Inc could be an affordable way to keep your new room comfortable without adding things 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 is housed on the ground outside, similar to the setup 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 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 rooms that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.

Without a doubt you’ll be over all of the 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 means about 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 give 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 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.
