Adding on to your Wausau home requires a great deal of planning and a lot of decisions. Determining how to heat and cool your new area shouldn’t add things to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Gilray Heating and Cooling could be an affordable way to keep your new room cozy 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 room 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 have to have ductwork to get the mission accomplished!
Mini-split systems are small and provide you a lot of opportunities for zoning—models can heat and cool up to four different zones, all with individual thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the spaces that you’ll be using, so you won’t waste energy.
Without a doubt you’ll be over all of the construction in your home once your project is completed. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally means 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 provide 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 put together because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
