Adding on to your Phoenix home takes a bit 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 Integrity AC & Heating LLC could be an affordable way to keep your new space cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system consists of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the area on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the job done!
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 gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly 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 normally needs 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 offer 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 space is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
