Converting an attic to a living space, repurposing a sunroom or building a home addition can provide your family with some much-needed extra space—but you’ll need to decide the best way to heat and cool the area to be comfortable. Your home’s existing central air conditioning system was installed based on original square footage. Adding living space means you’ll likely need to install additional ductwork and could even require a new AC system to handle the increased load, which can be extremely costly.
An easy, efficient and affordable solution to keep your attic or home addition cool is to install a ductless mini-split system. As the name implies, this type of cooling system doesn’t require tying into existing ductwork—it doesn’t use any ducts at all—making it the perfect choice for an attic or home addition.
Mini-split ductless systems are extremely energy efficient and can help keep monthly energy bills low. Another advantage of installing ductless is that you can have instant zoned cooling in your home—keeping areas that you’re using comfortable without having to air condition the whole house. The units are also available in a heat pump option which produces both heating and cooling.
A ductless system is a great solution for areas of the home that are hard to keep cool in the summer. Installation is easy and will increase home comfort while operating efficiently.
