Adding on to your Moline home requires a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from J.L. Brady Company LLC could be a simple way to keep your new room cozy without adding things to your list of decisions or your expenses.
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 sits 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 mission accomplished!
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.
Undoubtedly you’ll be tired of construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that installing a mini-split system is minimally invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally needs 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 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 room is put together because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
