Whether you add a sunroom, family room or other room to your house, being comfortable in your new area year-round is key. However, they can present a unique challenge for comfort. This is because adding ductwork is pricey. And that your heating and cooling system may not be able to handle the increased load, because it was sized without including the addition.
One of the most reasonably priced options is to get a mini-split. This system provides energy-efficient heating and cooling, with no ductwork needed. Learn more about mini-splits and how getting one for your addition can be a great fit.

Heat pumps are extremely energy efficient as they shift heat to make your space more comfortable. In actuality, many have earned ENERGY STAR® certification, which can make you eligible for extra rebates and lower your heating and cooling expenses for many years.
Another special feature involves zoned heating and cooling. As each room often has a dedicated indoor unit, you can select your preferred temperature from room to room. As an example, a mini-split AC is particularly useful if you have a space with special temperature needs, like a home gym.
Getting a mini-split system is worth it for spaces that don’t have ductwork. Here are several reasons why it’s wiser than adding ductwork and leaning on your current heating and cooling system.
Like regular systems, mini-splits are available in various sizes based on the square footage they’ll be heating and cooling. Here are three of the most regularly installed sizes:
