An additional room is a great investment. It can increase your home’s value and give your family more space, but it raises the question of how the area can be heated and cooled effectively. Added square footage in your Goshen, Indiana, home means that your HVAC system will need extra air conditioning power. In these cases, we often recommend ductless products. They’re an excellent choice for the following areas:
- Converted attics
- Finished basements
The Benefits of Ductless Systems
Mini-splits are highly efficient. They provide all of the modern features and benefits of central air conditioning, but you don’t need to go through the process of installing air ducts or replacing your compressor and air handler. Compared to ducted systems, mini-splits are much easier to install. Plus, they don’t involve the costly replacement of major parts. If desired, you can use multi-room zoning to heat and cool several rooms.
The installation process is a major advantage of mini-splits. A complete heating and cooling system can be installed in one day because the indoor and outdoor components are simply linked by a refrigerant line and electrical cable. This means that the only changes will be mounting the air handler inside the room and cutting a four-inch access point for the conduit to pass through the wall. Installation is quicker, more affordable, and less invasive than it would be with a conventional central air conditioning system.
Ductless HVAC systems are available in a number of sizes and configurations. You can choose from air handlers that are mounted on the wall, installed on the floor, or attached to the ceiling. The Carrier units that we offer support zoning if you’re interested in adding air conditioning to more than one room. Given the climate in northern Indiana, a mini-split heat pump will deliver comfort in every season while giving you the option to heat and cool an addition and other spaces that need extra comfort.
