Adding on to your South Beloit and Belvidere home takes a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc could be an affordable way to keep your new area comfy without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have 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 individual thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the rooms that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be done with 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 usually requires about 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 put together because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
