You’ve finally decided to increase the square footage in your Crawfordville, Florida, home. If you don’t employ professionals to correctly size and install new HVAC equipment for your home’s addition, you’ll face temperature and humidity problems in the new space. Consider some important factors before committing to an HVAC solution for your increased square footage.
Your HVAC System Will Need to Be Resized
When the technicians first installed your HVAC system, they sized it to heat and cool the square footage you used to have. Constructing an addition increases your square footage, which means your current HVAC system is no longer the correct size for your home. Even if you extend the ductwork into the new area, the room might not reach the temperature you desire.
Think About Adding an Additional Smaller Unit
Instead of buying a new HVAC system for the entire house, especially if your current system is well-maintained, consider buying a small unit just to serve the added space. A roof unit or another outdoor AC unit might do the trick. Our professional technicians can size it for your new space and create a new heating and cooling zone for your home.
Ductless Solves Retrofit Problems
You don’t have to install duct work in your new addition. In fact, if you’re not planning to upgrade your entire home’s HVAC system, then a ductless system for your new space is perfect. Ductless systems offer great zoning capabilities, energy efficiency, and typically operate from sleek wall-mounted units instead of vents in the floor or walls.
