Adding on to your McHenry home requires a great deal 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 Jett's Heating & Air Inc. could be an affordable way to keep your new room comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your expenses.
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 placed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of flexibility 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 utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be tired of 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 means roughly 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 provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your room is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
