Now that we’ve passed the Fourth of July holiday, this time of year many homeowners may be tackling some of their home construction projects they’ve been planning this year.
For some, that may be a simple remodeling project like a bathroom or kitchen and for others this may mean a full addition to their existing homes, like adding on to a garage, building a pool house or guest suite.
Whichever home building project you’re doing this year, you’re going to want to keep it cool and dry when it’s all said and done and the best way to do this is with a ductless mini-split air conditioning system.
Very often when you start adding on or modify your home’s structure, you’ll find that integrating your existing ductwork into this new area to be quite the challenge.
If you’re planning on building a structure that doesn’t connect to your home like the pool house or guest suite mentioned above, then connecting to your home’s existing ductwork isn’t even an option.
Either way, you still have one great option for keeping those new areas cool & dry with a ductless air conditioning unit.
Just as the name implies, you’ll get to cool that new area in your home without the need for ductwork.
You’ll have an indoor unit installed in this new area that is connected to an outdoor unit via special, concealed tubing.
All the components that are needed to condition the air are contained within this “mini”, split system without the need of a robust ductwork system to “push” the air around your home.
This contained, ductless mini-split operation makes it easy to fit into new spaces; perfect for your home add-ons or other new building projects.
With the ductless system in place, expanding to fit other areas in your home can easily be done with the use of “zoning”. Each new area you want cooled can have its own indoor unit, which can tie into an existing outdoor unit (depending on the size of the outdoor unit).
In fact, many homeowners in Charleston have swapped out their traditional central air conditioning system with a multi-zone ductless system to avoid cleaning and maintaining their ductwork altogether.
Ductless systems also provide you with the most granular control over comfort settings in the areas you choose to cool. The indoor units you install can be individually set to specific temperature levels in each zone in your home, instead of having to adjust a whole-home, traditional system.
Adding on to your home or property can be a challenge, but keeping that new addition cool and dry won’t be with a new ductless air conditioning system from Carolina Climate Control.
