Adding on to your Sacramento home can take 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 American HVAC Inc could be a simple way to keep your new area cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system consists 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 what you’d expect for a normal 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 individual thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be in, 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 adding a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically requires 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 provide 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 room is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
