Adding on to your Safford home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from B&D Air Conditioning could be a simple way to keep your new space comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to the setup 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 leave you a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically means 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 provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your area is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
