What’s the Best Way to Heat and Cool a Room Addition?
You don’t always need to buy a bigger home to acquire the extra space you want or need for your growing family, to facilitate greater ease of entertainment, to making one-floor living a reality, or whatever your goal might be. Sometimes, the simple solution is adding a room or expanding an existing room.
Before you embark on such a project, it’s always a good idea to check with a real estate agent on what the addition will do to your home’s resale value, whether or not you’re planning to keep this as your “forever” residence. Sooner or later, someone’s going to have to sell it, and you don’t want to create any hard-to-overcome obstacles if you can avoid them.
Next in the pecking order is deciding things like:
- Building up or out – If you’re looking to save money, it’s better to build out or finish off an area in your basement than to build on top of your current living spaces.
- What kind of room makes the most sense: new master bedroom suite, family room, guest room, AV room?
- You can save money with a 3-season room, but will you be happy with your decision?
At some point in the process, you’re going to need an experienced HVAC professional to advise you on the best way to heat and cool your added living space. Can you efficiently expand your current systems, which might also mean adding ductwork to the new space? Or would you save money and be better served with a ductless air system designed specifically for your new addition?
Right now, we can’t properly advise you, because no two situations are alike. We do, suggest, however, that you call us early in the planning process so we not only can advise you on the best way to heat and cool your new addition, but help you arrive at your total project budget before work gets underway.
