Adding on to your Bend home requires a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Tri County Climate Control LLC could be a good way to keep your new area cozy without adding on to your list of decisions or your expenses.
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 arrangement for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of opportunities 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 in, so you won’t waste energy.
There’s no doubt that you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is done. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system is not invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically requires roughly 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 give 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 put together because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
