Adding on to your Temple/Belton home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Bell Air Conditioning Inc could be an affordable way to keep your new area cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your cost.
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 sits on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This gives 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 done with construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually requires around 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 does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
