Despite the effort and expense of it, expanding your home can be an exciting time. Perhaps you’re adding a new living space for a baby or transforming a bare patch of dirt into the coolest game room on the block. No matter what your reason is for the new home addition, you’ll need a way to heat and cool it. Read on to learn why you should install a ductless HVAC system in your new home addition.
Avoid the Expense of Extending Ductwork
You likely have a central HVAC system that provides your home with cold or warm air. To adequately cool or heat your new home addition, you’ll need to extend your HVAC system’s ductwork and install supply vents in the room. That comes at a cost, though.
A ductless HVAC system doesn’t require ductwork to deliver conditioned air into your new home addition. It delivers that air directly. You can mount a ductless HVAC system on a wall or ceiling, and there are plenty of options that meet your aesthetic desires.
Enjoy Energy Efficiency and Savings
Leaky ductwork can waste a lot of energy and money. By not extending your HVAC system’s ductwork into the new home addition, you’ll lower your risk of wasting energy because of leaks in that area of the home. But that isn’t the only way you save money.
Homeowners who add new rooms to their homes often opt to cool and heat them with window air conditioners and space heaters. These aren’t only less efficient systems, but they’re also more dangerous to operate. A ductless HVAC system is a more cost-effective option because it operates on less power and can both heat and cool your living space.
Operate Your System the Same Day
You don’t have to wait weeks and deal with daily disruptions to install a new ductless HVAC system. All the system requires is a three-inch hole. You won’t have to worry about rebuilding ceiling or walls, and your system will operate within the same day.
