Adding on to your Mount Pleasant home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Olde Towne Heating & Air could be a good way to keep your new space comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your cost.
A mini-split system is made 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 typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to accomplish the mission!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of options for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with individual thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be using, 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 adding a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually requires about 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t 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 hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
