Adding on to your Lodi home can take a bit of planning and a lot of decisions. Choosing how to heat and cool your new room shouldn’t add more to your to-do list. A mini-split system from Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning could be a good way to keep your new space comfy without adding things to your list of decisions or your expenses.
A mini-split system is made of two main parts: a blower unit installed inside the room on an exterior wall and a condensing unit that is placed on the ground outside, similar to the setup for a normal central air conditioner. The difference is that it doesn’t need ductwork to get the job done!
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 separate thermostats. This offers 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 done. The good news is that putting in a mini-split system isn’t invasive. The connection between the outdoor and indoor units normally needs about a three-inch hole through a wall. This is good news in terms of not needing additional construction and in terms of safety—through-the-wall or window AC units both give 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 hooked on a drop ceiling.
