Adding on to your Fort Lauderdale home can take a great deal 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 Solar Air Inc. could be an affordable way to keep your new room comfy without adding on to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the area 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 require ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
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 individual thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that adding a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally means 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 won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your area is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
