Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other room to your home, being cozy in your new space no matter the weather is important. However, they can present a unique challenge for contentment. This is due to the fact installing ductwork is costly. And that your heating and cooling system may not be work properly with the higher load, since it was sized without considering the addition.
One of the most reasonably priced options is to add a mini-split. This system delivers energy-efficient heating and cooling, all without ductwork. Learn more about mini-splits and how getting one for your addition might be a good fit.
A ductless mini-split, because they’re nearly identical to ducted heat pumps that have been used in southern climates for decades.
Heat pumps are very energy efficient as they move heat to make your addition comfier. In actuality, many have achieved ENERGY STAR® certification, which can make you eligible for added rebates and lower your energy expenses for years to come.
Another exclusive feature is zoned heating and cooling. Because each room typically has a dedicated indoor unit, you can set your preferred temperature from room to room. As an example, a mini-split AC is especially useful if you have a space with special temperature needs, like a home gym.
Installing a mini-split system is worth it for spaces that are without ductwork. Here are a few reasons why it’s smarter than adding ductwork and leaning on your existing heating and cooling system.
Like more common systems, mini-splits come in several sizes based on the square footage they’ll be heating and cooling. Here are three of the most regularly installed sizes:
