If you’re considering adding an addition to your home or you already have, there’s one area you need to think about; heating and air conditioning that area. There are many options to use when you add on but one newer option that many like to go with is the split HVAC system. If you haven’t heard of this system yet, it’s time you do. Our team here at J & M Air Conditioning & Heating can assist you in finding out the right split HVAC to fit your needs for your upcoming renovations.
Basically a split air conditioner has an external blower unit and a condenser that sits outside on the ground. You’ll find it is very similar to a standard unit but this one can do so much more. It can heat and cool the area of your home efficiently. Take a look at some instances where our team suggests you go with the split system instead of a traditional one.
Split Instead of Replace
Your current heating and cooling system may be efficient enough for the space you already have. If you’re not ready to swap out the whole system for your new and improved kitchen or added master suite, then you should think about the split system. Sometimes your old system may be able to handle the larger area and other times it can’t. When that happens, a split HVAC unit can heat and cool the one area you have efficiently without taxing your current system.
Follow AC Regulations
It’s important to know the regulations for air conditioners and energy efficiency before you start just adding in new duct work to cover your area. Most current systems have been covered or grandfathered in and when you update the system it has to be the newer energy models. If you consider just adding in more duct work for your home, that opens your home up to new inspection and can cause you to have to replace the entire unit at once. Your new system is subject to regulations and could cause you a multitude of problems if you decide to just add on. This is where our team can come in and help you pick the right split system unit if your current system is working properly to do the job.
Consider Split for New Area
Another benefit to the split system is that you can control it separately from your current unit. For example, if you like your master bedroom nice and cool, then you can keep it cooler than the rest of the home. You can also warm it up if need be. When you have a room that is added on and not in the current AC system, it can cause issues keeping it the the desired temperature. It could get too much AC or not enough during the summer. The room may stay too hot during the winter if it is right near the air handler. This balance is better kept by installing a split HVAC system in your home that is just for that area.
Our team here at J & M Air Conditioning & Heating can offer you the top of the line split HVAC systems to help you with all your new additions in your home or office. Whether you’ve added on to your current home or your home is not heating and cooling evenly, this may be your solution.
