Adding on to your Northglenn home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. could be an affordable way to keep your new space comfy without adding things to your list of decisions or your cost.
A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of options 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.
Undoubtedly you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that adding 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 provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your area is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
