Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House

Adding on to your West Palm Beach home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Kyzar Air Conditioning Inc could be an affordable way to keep your new room cozy without adding much 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 placed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to accomplish the mission!

Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This offers 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 done. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally requires around 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 does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your area 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.
