Adding on to your Bishop home takes a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning could be a simple way to keep your new room comfortable without adding on to your list of decisions or your cost.
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 typical central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to accomplish the mission!
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 their own thermostats. This provides you the money-saving flexibility to heat or cool only the areas 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 done. The good news is that adding a mini-split system is not 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 further construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both provide 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 room is designed because compact indoor air handlers can be added on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted hooked on a drop ceiling.
