Mini-split systems can help save energy

Using a Mini Split for an Add-On to Your House

Adding on to your Saint Louis home requires a bit 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 Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating could be a simple way to keep your new room comfy without adding on to your list of decisions or your budget.

A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is housed on the ground outside, similar to what you’d expect for a typical 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 provide you a lot of flexibility 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 spaces that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.

Without a doubt you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that putting in 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 provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system doesn’t jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also mean you have flexibility in how your space is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
