Cooling Your Newly Built Addition Efficiently

Heating and Cooling Your Newly Built Addition Efficiently

September 14, 2017

When you build a new addition for your Raeford, NC, home, you’ll need a comfortable, efficient heating and cooling system. You can avoid increasing your utility bills too much and make controlling your HVAC system convenient even with a bigger home. Just make sure you consider the costs and requirements of the available systems. You can heat and cool your new addition efficiently with zoning, an extension of your existing system, or an upgrade.

Zoning

If your new addition is far away from your existing HVAC system, installing one or more independent systems is usually less expensive than a complete upgrade, especially if your heating and cooling system is relatively new. It’s still a big investment, but it helps you save energy by turning the heat or air conditioner down in unoccupied rooms or zones. Many programmable thermostats can control several zones.

An Extension of Your System

If your existing heating and cooling system is less than 10 years old, you can simply have your ductwork extended by a professional. Just make sure that your system has enough capacity to cool your new addition and the other parts of your home at the same time. An experienced technician can inspect your house and let you know if your existing system is large enough.

An Upgrade

If your system is more than 10 years old, you’ll probably need a new one soon, and you can save energy by upgrading to a more efficient model. You could even qualify for a tax credit. A geothermal heat pump uses underground or underwater pipes attached to an indoor air handling unit. It works like a conventional heat pump and lasts about twice as long. You can also use a variable-speed system that saves power by staying on longer and running at a lower speed or several other energy-saving models.

We can help you choose, install, maintain, and repair the best air conditioning equipment for your new addition. Call us today for excellent service.
