Thinking of Building a Home Addition? Here’s Why a Ductless Mini Split A/C May Be Your Best Cooling Option

A new addition to your home will add value while improving the functionality of your living space. Plus, it’s a great way to welcome aging family members or new infants to your home. But in Arizona, central air conditioning is a necessity. However, you may not want to deal with the expense and hassle of extending your existing ductwork into the new home addition. The solution? Talk to a heating and cooling expert about installing a ductless mini split AC instead!

Ductless mini splits are relatively quick to install.

New home additions can be exciting to plan, but they can also be a hassle to build. You’ll have to deal with the disruption of having workers at your home, possibly for months, depending on the size of the addition. One of the great benefits of using a ductless mini split AC for your addition is that there is no need to install ductwork. This can potentially reduce the amount of time that it takes to build the addition—and you can start enjoying it that much sooner.

Ductless mini splits offer zoned cooling capabilities.

Another advantage of ductless mini split air conditioners is that they offer zoned cooling capabilities. This means that one part of your home could be set at one temperature, with another zone at a different temperature. So, if your new addition will be a bedroom, you might not need it cooled during the day. You can set the temperature higher during the day and lower the temperature to enhance comfort during the night.

Ductless mini splits can reduce your carbon footprint.

Ductless mini splits tend to be highly energy efficient, which can reduce your utility bills and your carbon footprint. Talk to the technician to find out which Energy Star-rated system is right for your new addition.
