If you’re a homeowner in Richardson, TX, fortunate enough to have the space and means to build an addition on your home, you’ve probably puzzled over how to keep it cool. The problem is that extending your AC system’s ductwork could overtax your existing HVAC system. And short of buying a new, larger central HVAC system, there’s no way to remedy that. As an alternative, though, you could install a ductless mini-split system to provide cooling for your new addition. Here’s why it’s a good idea.
The Benefits of Ductless Mini-Splits
A ductless mini-split AC is a perfect way to add air conditioning to a home addition or any other part of your home not presently served by your central AC. The reason is that they’re simple to install, and they can coexist with your existing central AC without causing any problems.
Installing a ductless mini-split is as simple as mounting an air handler on a wall in the room or rooms you wish to cool, drilling a small hole to accommodate refrigerant and power lines, and installing an outdoor unit. There are no ducts involved. That makes them a natural fit for an addition since they leave your existing system intact and offer a standalone cooling solution for the new space. Plus, you’ll also gain the ability to set the temperature in your addition independently from the rest of your home.
