Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other space to your house, being cozy in your new room year-round is important. However, they can create a unique situation for comfort. This is because installing ductwork is expensive. And that your heating and cooling system may not be able to handle the heightened load, as it was sized without considering the addition.
One of the most cost-effective possibilities is to add a mini-split. This system delivers energy-efficient heating and cooling, all without ductwork. Find out more about mini-splits and how installing one in your addition can be a fantastic fit.
A ductless mini-split, as they’re nearly identical to ducted heat pumps that southern homeowners have relied on for decades.
Heat pumps are extremely energy efficient since they transfer heat to make your addition more comfortable. In fact, many have earned ENERGY STAR® certification, which can make you eligible for added rebates and reduce your heating and cooling bills for years to come.
Another exclusive feature is zoned heating and cooling. Since each room usually has an individual indoor unit, you can choose your preferred temperature from room to room. As an instance, a mini-split AC is particularly beneficial if you have a space with precise temperature needs, like a home gym.
