Adding on to your Oxford home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc could be a good way to keep your new space cozy 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 room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of options 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 areas that you’ll be utilizing, 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 adding a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually needs 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 does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your room 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.
