Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House

Adding on to your Grove City home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Air Quality Solutions could be an affordable way to keep your new space comfy without adding much to your list of decisions or your expenses.

A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed 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 get the mission accomplished!

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 their own thermostats. This provides 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 completed. The good news is that putting in 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your area 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.

When you’re on the lookout for the best way to heat and cool an addition to your home, call Air Quality Solutions at 614-871-4144 and we’ll help you sort through all your options.
