Adding on to your Zelienople home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Knoechel Heating Company could be an affordable way to keep your new room cozy without adding much 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 the arrangement for a typical 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 individual thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is done. 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 additional construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’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 put on a drop ceiling.
