Adding on to your Tucson home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from A&M Heating & Cooling LLC could be a good way to keep your new room cozy without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.
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 sits on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally needs 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 provide 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 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.
