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

Cooling

Adding on to your Anaheim home requires a lot 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 Eco Fresh HVAC Inc. could be a good way to keep your new space comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your cost.

A mini-split system is made 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 what you’d expect for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have 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 their own thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas 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 putting in a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically requires about 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 give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t 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 added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
