Adding on to your Genoa home takes a lot 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 Assured Appliance and Heating & Air could be a simple way to keep your new space cozy without adding on to your list of decisions or your cost.
A mini-split system consists 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 normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have 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 individual thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically requires 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 offer 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 hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
