Adding on to your St. Louis home can take a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating 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 made 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 arrangement for a typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t have to have ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
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 their own thermostats. This gives 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 done with construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units usually requires about a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing further construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both offer 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 hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
