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

Adding on to your Las Vegas home requires 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 JonAire 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 what you’d expect 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 flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This offers 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 typically needs about a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing more 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 permit you to have flexibility in how your room 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.
