Adding an addition to any home is usually exciting, but often comes with a few challenges. One of the biggest concerns, when you are putting an addition on your property, is how to keep it comfortable all year long. Recently, we installed a Daikin Emura single-zone ductless heat pump system to air condition the sunroom of this Skokie, IL home.
When you are putting an addition on any property, you’ll want to consider how to heat and cool it over the course of the winter and summer. The ductwork is usually not designed to run to the addition, which is why a supplement is usually the solution.
In this Skokie Rancher-style home, the ductwork was not designed to run to the space where they were putting their sunroom. They were only using their addition in the spring and fall, when the weather was mild, but wanted to be able to use it all year long. They wanted a solution that could both heat and cool the space, giving them use all year round.
We recommended installing a Daikin Emura single-zone ductless heat pump. It’s a very simple system, with a condenser outside, that runs through some line sets, to a single mini split positioned in the sunroom. This system has the ability to cool the air in the summer, and heat the air in the winter. This is exactly what our homeowner was looking for, making the sunroom a cozy space to use all year long.
In this case, as is the case with a lot of additions to homes, they needed a supplement to their current HVAC system. We have seen some people take the opportunity to add ductwork and install a new system, but the most common solution now is to install a ductless mini split.
Instead of replacing their whole system, which is more expensive, we installed a single ductless mini split that can heat and cool the addition. There are a few reasons this is a great solution:
Right now, with companies and the government trying to find ways to consume less energy, they are offering incentives for homeowners to upgrade to energy-efficient heating and cooling equipment. Installing new air conditioning and heating systems can be a costly investment, but one that you will live with for years. We recommend using rebates and tax credits to alleviate some of the cost of your equipment, and installing a system that keeps the energy use down.
If you are looking for a new heating and cooling system for your home or business, a ductless mini split installation is something you should consider. As we’ve mentioned mini split units are some of the most energy-efficient heating and air conditioning systems available.
