Adding on to your Newton home takes a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Brookwood Inc could be an affordable way to keep your new room cozy without adding on to your list of decisions or your expenses.
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 what you’d expect for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to accomplish the mission!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of flexibility 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 rooms that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that adding 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 does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also allow for 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 put on a drop ceiling.
