Mini Splits Mean Man Cave Comfort


A good way to get away from all the holiday hustle and bustle is to escape to your new man cave for the big football game.  Of course, you have to get decked out in your favorite team’s gear: long underwear, a parka with the team logo and warm wooly stocking cap.

Sounds a bit ridiculous, doesn’t it?  Unfortunately, this scene plays out all too often when it comes to those bonus rooms, which are often added in areas that aren’t currently heated or cooled.  Your revamped garage, unfinished basement or screened in porch areas can get mighty cool or steamy and the cost of adding ductwork connected to your current HVAC system means it may be that way for a while.

Well, we are more than happy to tell you about a viable solution to your problem. It goes by many different names including mini-split, mini-split inverter, or ductless heat pump.  You can call it what you want but the bottom line is they are an efficient way to heat and cool a room or area without the expense of extending your home’s ductwork.

Mini splits are convenient and popular due to their small size and the option of utilizing zoning- heating and cooling individual rooms. Up to four indoor air-handling units (for four zones or rooms) may be connected to central outdoor unit.

Another plus is the ease of installation. All you need for the hhe hookup between the indoor and outdoor units is usually just a three inch hole through the wall. The indoor unit can also be mounted as far as 50 feet away from the outdoor unit, which enables you to conceal the condenser unit in a discreet location.

The main reason mini-split systems are efficient is because they eliminate energy loss associated with ductwork. You don’t have to worry about your heated or cooled air leaking out through holes and connections in existing ducts. All of the hot or cold air goes directly to the room or area you need it to.  Because they are so efficient they qualify for federal tax credits, but remember these tax breaks may expire at the end of 2016 if not renewed by Congress.

So, what are you waiting for? With your new ductless heat pump only your chicken wings and your significant other will be hot. And the only cold thing will be your favorite beverage, chilling in the man cave refrigerator. The long johns? History.
