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

Cooling

Adding on to your Tomball home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Premium Air Services LLC could be an affordable way to keep your new room cozy without adding much to your list of decisions or your cost.

A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the area on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to get the job done!

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 individual thermostats. This offers 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 completed. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually means roughly 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 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 space is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
