Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other room to your home, being cozy in your new area throughout the year is key. However, they can create a unique problem for comfort. This is due to the fact adding ductwork is expensive. And that your heating and cooling system may not be work properly with the increased load, since it was sized without taking the addition into consideration.
One of the most cost-effective solutions is to get a mini-split. This system delivers energy-efficient heating and cooling, with no ductwork required. Find out more about mini-splits and how installing one in your addition could be a good fit.
A ductless mini-split, because they’re very similar to ducted heat pumps that southern homeowners have used for decades.
Heat pumps are very energy efficient since they move heat to make your room cozier. In reality, many have achieved ENERGY STAR® certification, which can make you eligible for extra rebates and reduce your heating and cooling expenses for many years.
Another exclusive feature is zoned heating and cooling. As each room usually has a dedicated indoor unit, you can select your preferred temperature from room to room. For example, a mini-split AC is especially useful if you have a space with precise temperature needs, including a home gym.
Having a mini-split system is worth it for rooms that don’t have ductwork. Here are several reasons why it’s better than adding ductwork and using your current heating and cooling system.
Like more common systems, mini-splits are available in varying sizes based on the square footage they’ll be heating and cooling. Here are three of the most popular sizes:
