Adding on to your Newark home requires a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Luikart Heating & Cooling could be a simple way to keep your new space comfy without adding much to your list of decisions or your budget.
A mini-split system consists 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 what you’d expect for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and offer a lot of flexibility for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with their own thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas that you’ll be in, so you won’t waste energy.
Undoubtedly 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 usually means roughly 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 provide an opening for intruders. A mini-split system does not jeopardize your home’s safety like that. They also permit you to have flexibility in how your area is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted into a drop ceiling.
