Adding on to your Rock Hill home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from US Air Heating and Cooling could be a simple way to keep your new room cozy without adding on 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 accomplish the mission!
Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This offers 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 done with construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally means around a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing further 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 space is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
