Adding on to your Albuquerque home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from I-Deal HVAC could be a simple way to keep your new room comfy without adding on to your list of decisions or your cost.
A mini-split system consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the area on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!
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 areas that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically needs about 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your space is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
