My spouse & I recently decided to engiant our master study room. The two of us chose to close in the screen porch & incorporate the square footage in the study room area. The two of us were able to handle most of the remodeling projects ourselves. Insulating the walls, adding windows & putting up drywall wasn’t all that difficult. The porch was already outfitted with electricity. Our largest problem was how to handle temperature control. In our local area, both heating & cooling are necessary. While our current home is equipped with a forced air system, the ductwork doesn’t extend to what was once the screen porch. The two of us considered installing current ductwork but were reluctant to sacrifice the space to accommodate it. Plus, every one of us weren’t confident our home’s gas furnace & air conditioner could manage the bigger workload. The two of us finally consulted with a professional Heating & A/C business who commanded installing a ductless mini split. One of the main benefits of a ductless program is that the equipment is super compact. There is an outdoor compressor affixed to an indoor air handler that is lightweight, streamlined & mounted high on the wall. The program provides both heating & cooling, & despite its small size, is surprisingly powerful. The operation is quiet & energy efficient. The two of us have an app on our cellphone that allows us to switch between heating & cooling, raise or lower the temperature setting & adjust the fan speed. The two of us can even customize the direction of airflow. The ductless heat pump helps to filter contaminants out of the air & combat excess humidity. It requires only yearly service & costs really little to run. The two of us are totally pleased with the system.
