However, they can make a unique situation for heating and cooling. This is due to the fact extending ductwork is pricey. And that your heating and cooling system may not be able to handle the higher load, because it was sized without taking the addition into consideration.
One of the most reasonably priced solutions is to install a mini-split. This system offers energy-efficient heating and cooling, with no ductwork required. Learn more about mini-splits and how installing one in your addition might be a fantastic fit.
