Adding on to your Pocatello home requires a lot of planning and a lot of decisions. Figuring out how to heat and cool your new space shouldn’t add on to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Vogts Heating & Air could be a good way to keep your new space comfortable without adding much to your list of decisions or your expenses.
A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the space on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that sits on the ground outside, similar to the arrangement for a standard central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t require ductwork to get the job done!
Mini-split systems are small and leave 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 areas that you’ll be using, 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 completed. The good news is that installing a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units typically 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 offer 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 space is arranged because compact indoor air handlers can be hung on a wall or from the ceiling, or even flush-mounted put on a drop ceiling.
