Adding on to your Hudsonville home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from West Michigan Heating & Air Conditioning Services could be an affordable way to keep your new area comfy without adding much to your list of decisions or your expenses.
A mini-split system is made 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 the setup for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of options for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This gives you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that installing a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically needs roughly 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 doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your area is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
