Adding on to your Naples home requires a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Speedy Air Conditioning could be a simple way to keep your new room comfortable without adding on to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system is composed of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of opportunities 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 areas that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically 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 permit you to have flexibility in how your room 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.
