Adding on to your Hasbrouck Heights home takes a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from ACE Solutions could be a good way to keep your new room comfortable without adding things to your list of decisions or your cost.
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 housed 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 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 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 finished. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system isn’t 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 more 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 permit you to have flexibility in how your space is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
