Adding on to your Los Angeles home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from AZ Air Conditioning and Heating could be an affordable way to keep your new room comfortable without adding on to your list of decisions or your expenses.
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 typical 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 options for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically requires around 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 give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your area is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
