Adding on to your Payson home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from North Mechanical Heating and Cooling could be a good way to keep your new space comfy without adding much to your list of decisions or your cost.
A mini-split system consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to accomplish the mission!
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 individual thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually 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 does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your room is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
