Adding on to your Columbus 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 more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling could be an affordable way to keep your new room comfy without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.
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 what you’d expect for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
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 separate thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be in, 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 normally needs 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 give 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 space is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
