Adding on to your Plainfield home takes a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from PWA Heating & Cooling Inc could be an affordable way to keep your new space comfy without adding on to your list of decisions or your budget.
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 standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of options 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 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 putting in a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually requires roughly a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing more 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 permit you to have 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 hooked on a drop ceiling.
