Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House

Cooling

Adding on to your Shreveport home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Moon's Air could be an affordable way to keep your new area cozy without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.

A mini-split system consists 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 standard 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 opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.

Without a doubt you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that installing a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually needs roughly 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 does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your space 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.
