Adding on to your West Valley City 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 Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning could be a simple way to keep your new space cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system consists 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 setup for a typical 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 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 areas that you’ll be utilizing, 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 installing a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally 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 doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for flexibility in how your area is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
