Adding on to your Pacheco home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Clean Air HVAC could be a simple way to keep your new area comfortable without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.
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 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 job done!
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 spaces that you’ll be using, 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 adding a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally requires about 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 offer 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 put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
