Adding on to your Manassas home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Woody's Sudden Service Inc could be a good way to keep your new room comfortable without adding on to your list of decisions or your cost.
A mini-split system is composed 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 arrangement for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need 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 individual 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.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically means 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 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 space is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
