Adding on to your Murrieta home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Cool Air Solutions could be a good way to keep your new space cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to accomplish the mission!
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 using, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically needs roughly a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing additional construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your area is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
