Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other addition to your home, being comfortable in your new area no matter the weather is important. However, they can present a unique challenge for comfort. This is because adding ductwork is costly. And that your heating and cooling system may not be work properly with the heightened load, as it was sized without taking the addition into consideration.
One of the most reasonably priced possibilities is to add a mini-split. This system delivers energy-efficient heating and cooling, with no ductwork required. Discover more about mini-splits and how getting one for your addition might be a fantastic solution.
A ductless mini-split, since they’re nearly identical to ducted heat pumps that southern homeowners have used for decades.
Heat pumps are very energy efficient as they transfer heat to make your room more comfortable. In reality, many have earned ENERGY STAR® certification, which can make you eligible for added rebates and reduce your energy costs for many years.
Another unique feature is zoned heating and cooling. Because each room usually has its own indoor unit, you can choose your preferred temperature from room to room. As an instance, a mini-split AC is especially useful if you have a room with special temperature needs, like a home gym.
Having a mini-split system is worth it for rooms that don’t have ductwork. Here are a few reasons why it’s wiser than adding ductwork and leaning on your present heating and cooling system.
Like more common systems, mini-splits are offered in varying sizes based on the square footage they’ll be heating and cooling. Here are three of the most frequently installed sizes:
