Adding on to your Wharton home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Faust Air Conditioning and Heating could be a simple way to keep your new area cozy without adding on to your list of decisions or your expenses.
A mini-split system is made 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 the arrangement for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with separate thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically needs around 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 offer an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your area is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
