When you need more space in your Mountain City, GA home, converting an attic, basement, or some other area into a usable room is a wise choice. To maintain comfort in your newly finished space, you’ll need an efficient and effective heating and cooling system. Ductless mini-splits are ideal for these converted spaces, and they can also provide many benefits to the rest of your home.
Set Up Zoned Heating and Cooling
Ductless mini-splits facilitate the setup of zoned heating and cooling in your home. With zoned heating and cooling, you can warm or cool one zone, a few rooms, or all of them at the same time. If you’re only occupying one zone, not having to heat or cool the rest of the house reduces energy use and saves money. Zoned heating and cooling also allows you to customize temperatures to suit each household member’s comfort preferences.
Lower Energy Use
According to Energy Star, installing a ductless mini-split to heat and cool your converted living space could lower your home’s energy use by at least 30% compared to the use of electric space heaters and portable or window air conditioners. Many converted spaces are located in parts of homes that experience high temperatures, such as the space above a garage or near a crawl space. Without leaky ducts to waste energy, your home will have a smaller carbon footprint.
Save Money on Heating and Cooling Costs
Choosing an Energy Star-rated ductless mini-split provides you the greatest amount of savings on your monthly heating and cooling costs. These ductless mini-splits can also heat and cool the rest of your home, which will add to your savings. If your home has electric heat or an old, inefficient heating and cooling system, your savings could amount to thousands of dollars each year.
