Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other space to your residence, being comfortable in your new room regardless of outdoor temperatures is key. However, they can make a unique situation for heating and cooling. This is since installing ductwork is pricey. And that your heating and cooling system may not be able to handle the higher load, because it was sized without including the addition.
One of the most cost-effective options is to install a mini-split. This system provides energy-efficient heating and cooling, with no ductwork required. Find out more about mini-splits and how adding one to your addition could be a fantastic solution.
A ductless mini-split, because they’re very similar to ducted heat pumps that southern homeowners have used for decades.
Heat pumps are extremely energy efficient because they transfer heat to make your addition more comfortable. In reality, many have reached ENERGY STAR® certification, which can make you eligible for extra rebates and decrease your heating and cooling expenses for a long time.
Another special feature involves zoned heating and cooling. As each room usually has its own indoor unit, you can choose your preferred temperature from room to room. As an example, a mini-split AC is very helpful if you have a space with special temperature needs, including a home gym.
Installing a mini-split system is worth it for rooms that lack ductwork. Here are a couple reasons why it’s better than adding ductwork and relying on your existing heating and cooling system.
Like more common systems, mini-splits are available in varying sizes based on the square footage they’ll be heating and cooling. Here are three of the most regularly installed sizes:
