Adding on to your Omaha home takes a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Interstate Heating & Air Conditioning could be a good way to keep your new room cozy without adding on to your list of decisions or your cost.
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 what you’d expect for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically means around a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing more construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your area is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
