Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other space to your home, being comfy in your new room regardless of outdoor temperatures is important. However, they can create a unique problem for contentment. This is because extending ductwork is pricey. And that your heating and cooling system may not be able to handle the increased load, because it was sized without including the addition.
One of the most affordable possibilities is to get a mini-split. This system provides energy-efficient heating and cooling, all without ductwork. Find out more about mini-splits and how adding one to your addition might be a fantastic option.
A ductless mini-split, because they’re much like ducted heat pumps that southern homeowners have relied on for decades.
Heat pumps are very energy efficient because they transfer heat to make your room comfier. In fact, many have earned ENERGY STAR® certification, which could make you eligible for extra rebates and decrease your utility costs for many years.
Another special feature is zoned heating and cooling. Since each room typically has its own indoor unit, you can select your preferred temperature from room to room. As an example, a mini-split AC is very beneficial if you have a area with precise temperature needs, such as a home gym.
Having a mini-split system is worth it for spaces that are without ductwork. Here are a couple reasons why it’s smarter than extending ductwork and leaning on your present heating and cooling system.
Like traditional systems, mini-splits are available in various sizes based on the square footage they’ll be heating and cooling. Here are three of the most regularly installed sizes:
