Adding on to your Long Island home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Airmax Long Island Inc could be an affordable way to keep your new space comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.
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 housed on the ground outside, similar to the setup 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 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 using, 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 putting in a mini-split system isn’t 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 mean you have flexibility in how your area is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be placed on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
