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

Cooling

Adding on to your Waxahachie home can take a bit 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 C&C Refrigeration Inc. could be an affordable way to keep your new area comfortable without adding on to your list of decisions or your budget.

A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the area on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to accomplish the mission!

Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of options for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.

Without a doubt 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 not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally needs roughly 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 give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t 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 placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
