Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other addition to your house, being comfy in your new area regardless of outdoor temperatures is key. However, they can make a unique challenge for contentment. This is because extending ductwork is costly. And that your heating and cooling system may not be able to handle the increased load, because it was sized without taking the addition into consideration.
One of the most reasonably priced options is to install a mini-split. This system offers 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, as they’re much like ducted heat pumps that southern homeowners have relied on for decades.
Heat pumps are extremely energy efficient because they move heat to make your room comfier. In fact, many have achieved ENERGY STAR® certification, which can make you eligible for added rebates and lower your utility bills for many years.
Another special feature involves zoned heating and cooling. Because each room typically has an individual indoor unit, you can select your preferred temperature from room to room. As an instance, a mini-split AC is extremely helpful if you have a area with specific temperature needs, such as a home gym.
Having a mini-split system is worth it for rooms that don’t have ductwork. Here are several reasons why it’s smarter than installing ductwork and relying on your current heating and cooling system.
Like more common systems, mini-splits come in varying sizes based on the square footage they’ll be heating and cooling. Here are three of the most frequently installed sizes:
