Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other space to your residence, being cozy in your new area no matter the weather is important. However, they can present a unique situation 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, as it was sized without including the addition.
One of the most cost-effective possibilities is to install a mini-split. This system provides energy-efficient heating and cooling, with no ductwork required. Discover more about mini-splits and how getting one for your addition could be a great solution.
A ductless mini-split, because they’re nearly identical to ducted heat pumps that southern homeowners have relied on for decades.
Heat pumps are very energy efficient because they move heat to make your addition more comfortable. In fact, many have reached ENERGY STAR® certification, which could make you eligible for extra rebates and reduce your utility expenses for many years.
Another unique feature involves zoned heating and cooling. Since each room often has a dedicated indoor unit, you can set your preferred temperature from room to room. As an instance, a mini-split AC is especially useful if you have a space with specific temperature needs, such as a home gym.
Having a mini-split system is worth it for rooms that are without ductwork. Here are a couple reasons why it’s wiser than installing ductwork and leaning on your current 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:
