Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other addition to your home, being comfy in your new room year-round is important. However, they can create a unique situation for comfort. This is because extending ductwork is costly. And that your heating and cooling system may not be able to handle the higher load, because it was sized without considering the addition.
One of the most reasonably priced solutions is to install a mini-split. This system provides energy-efficient heating and cooling, with no ductwork needed. Learn more about mini-splits and how installing one in your addition might be a fantastic solution.
A ductless mini-split, because they’re very similar to ducted heat pumps that have been used in southern climates for decades.
Heat pumps are very energy efficient since they shift heat to make your addition comfier. In fact, many have reached ENERGY STAR® certification, which may make you eligible for additional rebates and lower your utility bills for years to come.
Another unique feature includes zoned heating and cooling. Since each room typically has a dedicated indoor unit, you can set your preferred temperature from room to room. As an instance, a mini-split AC is extremely helpful if you have a space with specific temperature needs, such as a home gym.
Installing a mini-split system is worth it for areas that are without ductwork. Here are a few reasons why it’s better than extending ductwork and using your current heating and cooling system.
Like regular 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:
