Heating and Cooling Your Garage or Basement Addition
Converting your basement or garage into living space lets you add valuable square footage to your home without investing in an expensive room addition. When you live in Lake County, part of the process is making sure that the room will stay cool during the summer while providing the warmth you need in the depth of winter. Happily, the broad selection of options available to you ensures that you’ll find the ideal solution.
Upgrades and Retrofits
A room renovation offers you opportunities to improve your current HVAC system so that it can service your new space while enhancing comfort levels throughout your home. Depending on the size of your system, it may be possible to upgrade components like evaporator coils and blowers to handle the additional heating or cooling load. If you have central air conditioning or heating, retrofits worth considering include redesigning the duct system so that less energy is wasted though leaks or poor insulation.
When it comes to a new HVAC installation, the Environmental Protection Agency cites ductless min-split systems as a good option for heating and cooling spaces like basements, garages and room additions. This energy-efficient product delivers air directly into the room through a small air handler, which is linked through an unobtrusive conduit to an outdoor unit. Eliminating the need for adding ductwork makes this type of HVAC installation quick and non-intrusive. Additional advantages include:
- Adaptable to virtually any application
- Low operating costs
- Can supply both heating and cooling
- Whisper-quiet operation
- Remote control functionality
