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

Adding on to your Omaha home can take a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from The Frazier Company could be a simple 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 room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits 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 accomplish the mission!

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 separate thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.

Undoubtedly you’ll be done with 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 normally requires around a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing additional construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both give an opening for intruders. A mini-split system won’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your space is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.

When you’re on the lookout for the best way to heat and cool an addition to your home, call The Frazier Company at 402-628-0206 and we’ll help you go through all your possibilities.
