Expanding your house with a home addition offers many exciting possibilities and can increase your property’s value. Ensuring the new living space feels comfortable year-round is essential to maximizing its potential. While extending your central HVAC system’s ductwork to accommodate it is an option, it’s a costly and time-consuming project. Here are four benefits of investing in a ductless HVAC installation for your home addition in Virginia Beach, VA:
Ductless HVAC systems, also known as mini-splits, contain one outdoor condenser unit and one or several indoor air handlers. The indoor air handler in your home addition will connect to the outdoor condenser unit via a small conduit. All your service technician has to do to connect the units is drill a three-inch hole in the wall.
Maximize Energy Efficiency
Traditional HVAC systems that contain ducts lose a lot of conditioned air through leaky ductwork. Your home addition will receive energy-efficient cooling and heating because a ductless minis-split delivers conditioned air directly. If your central HVAC system eventually requires replacement, you could zone your house with multiple ductless mini-splits. HVAC zoning helps you maximize energy efficiency by not cooling or heating empty areas in your house.
Maintain Healthy Indoor Air Quality
Filtering the air in your home addition is easy with a ductless HVAC installation. Ductless mini-splits feature advanced filters that prevent pollutants from entering your living space. The best part is they’re washable, so you won’t have to pay for filter replacements. Remember to wash your ductless filter every month for optimal performance.
Aesthetically Pleasing Designs
Ductless mini-splits come in various sleek designs to match any personal style or household aesthetic. The indoor air handlers mount on walls or ceiling, requiring minimal space. What’s more, they operate almost silently.
