Adding on to your Chadron home requires a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from MPC Heating & Cooling could be a good way to keep your new space comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your cost.
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 is housed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and leave you a lot of flexibility 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 rooms that you’ll be utilizing, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is finished. The good news is that adding 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 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 mean you have flexibility in how your space is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
