Adding on to your Marshalltown home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Kapaun & Brown Inc. could be a good way to keep your new area comfy without adding things 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 is placed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to accomplish the mission!
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 separate thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically needs around 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 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 room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
