Single Zone Mini-Splits: Remodels, Additions & More

By the modular nature of its design, a Mini-Split system is ideal for heating and cooling just one area of the home—whether it be a new addition, garage, basement or a room not being adequately served by your existing HVAC systems.  (Everyone has at least one!)
