Adding on to your Eastland home takes 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 J & J Air Conditioning could be a simple way to keep your new space comfy 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 space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally requires roughly 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 does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
