Adding on to your Excelsior Springs home can take a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Colvin's Heating and Cooling could be an affordable way to keep your new area comfy without adding things to your list of decisions or your cost.
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 sits on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This offers you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually means 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 provide 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 designed because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
