Adding on to your Tuscaloosa home can take a lot 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 KDM Service Corporation could be a simple way to keep your new room cozy without adding much to your list of decisions or your expenses.
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 what you’d expect for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of flexibility 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 areas that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be done with construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually means about 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 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 put together because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
