We hear it from clients all the time: they want to add living space to their homes but are concerned about the expense of heating and cooling the additional space because it’s not currently connected to their HVAC system.
Without a doubt Sanborn’s Air Conditioning & Heating has the solution to that problem. They are called ductless mini split heat pumps. They can add cooling or heating to a particular location in your home without having to add any ductwork. They are perfect if you want to turn that attic or garage space into a living area.
In addition, they allow the luxury of “zoning”, setting different temperatures in different rooms. There can be as many as four indoor air handlers connected to one outdoor condenser.
Mini splits are also easy to install. All that’s required is a three-inch hole to connect the air handler to the outside condenser. In addition, the outdoor unit can be up to 50-feet away, hidden behind shrubs or behind the house.
Our professionals at Sanborn’s can talk with you about which unit is right for you. We carry mini split heat pumps from trusted manufacturers such as Trane, Samsung, and Sanyo.
One word of advice, some companies are pushing mini splits as the solution for uneven heating or cooling in the home. In our experience, that’s usually caused by a ducting issue. So before you spend money on a new system, first call Sanborn’s and let our professionals inspect your ductwork. They may be able to fix the problem of hot or cold spots in the home without the expense of adding a new mini split heat pump.
That doesn’t mean mini splits aren’t a good choice for many situations when it comes to cooling and heating your home. We will be happy to help you decide if they are the right choice for you. Our professionals have the knowledge to help you make an informed decision.
And remember, no matter what your service, maintenance, or repair needs are, just call Sanborn’s Air Conditioning & Heating.
