Adding on to your Pflugerville home requires a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Evenaire Heating & Air Conditioning could be a simple way to keep your new room comfy without adding things to your list of decisions or your expenses.
A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the area on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that adding a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually 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 give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t 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 placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
