While we may not currently be in the season for adding an addition to your home, the winter months are always a great time to plan and design an expansion. If there’s one in your imminent future, one of the factors that need to be a part of your plan is heating, and possibly cooling. Ducted systems can be expensive to add to a home addition, but there’s another solution that may be a better option for you: ductless heating.
How It Works
Ductless heating (and cooling) can help you save some money in construction because you won’t have to add ductwork to your new home expansion. To have ductless heating, you’ll need:
- An outdoor unit that contains the compressor, condenser and heat pump technology
- At least one indoor blower (you can have up to four)
- A conduit to connect the indoor blower to the outdoor unit
Because ductless heating systems use heat pump technology to provide heat to your home, you automatically get cooling as well. Our experts can work with your contractor to make sure that your ductless heating system is installed properly and in accordance with your expansion plans.
Why Consider This Option?
As we already mentioned, using a ductless system in the newly-expanded part of your home can save you money on the expansion as you won’t need to install ductwork. But there are further-reaching benefits. First, if you use fossil fuel for your existing heating system, your fossil fuel costs won’t go up because a ductless system doesn’t use any fossil fuels. Second, a ductless system won’t conflict with your existing heating or cooling system, and in fact, will likely complement it. Third, it is much easier to expand a ductless system, should you need it, than a ducted one.
