Adding on to your Muskogee home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. could be a good way to keep your new area cozy without adding much to your list of decisions or your expenses.
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 is housed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to accomplish the mission!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of opportunities 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 using, 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 putting in a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically requires 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 provide 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 space is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
