My hubby plus I recently decided to engiant our master study room.
The two of us chose to close in the screen porch plus 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 plus putting up drywall wasn’t all that difficult. The porch was already outfitted with electricity. Our greatest complication was how to handle temperature control. In our local area, both heating plus cooling are necessary. While our beach house 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 new ductwork however were reluctant to sacrifice the space to accommodate it. Plus, the people I was with and I weren’t confident our home’s gas furnace plus cooling system could manage the bigger workload. The two of us finally consulted with a professional Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C supplier who recommended installing a ductless mini split. One of the main benefits of a ductless system is that the device is super compact. There is an outdoor compressor linked to an indoor air handler that is lightweight, streamlined plus mounted high on the wall. The system provides both heating plus cooling, plus despite its small size, is surprisingly powerful. The operation is quiet plus energy efficient. The two of us have an app on our PC that allows us to switch between heating plus cooling, raise or lower the temperature setting plus 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 plus combat excess humidity. It requires only yearly maintenance plus costs easily little to run. The two of us are totally satisfied with the system.
