How to Heat a Room Without Adding Ductwork
Whether you’re adding an addition to your home or converting a garage into a living space, deciding how to handle heating and cooling demands can be difficult. Retrofitting ductwork into an area where it was never originally installed (such as a garage, attic, some basements, etc.) can be a very invasive and expensive procedure, and it isn’t always the right call for every homeowner. Likewise, when adding a new addition, many homeowners decide that installing ductwork is more of a commitment than they would like to make. So what are your other heating and cooling options?
At Arctic Air Conditioning, we offer two suggestions:
- Ductless mini-split systems. These are ideal for both retrofitting as well as new living spaces. Ductless mini-split systems consist of a wall-mounted (or baseboard) unit and an outdoor unit, but they only require a small hole to be cut through the exterior wall (just big enough for a tube of refrigerant to pass through). Inside the home, the air will be conditioned and returned into the room by the same unit. These systems are incredibly efficient because they can be installed room-by-room and controlled individually for maximum comfort.
- Radiant floor heating. These systems are very popular in the central New Jersey area. We install Uponor radiant heating systems which consist of tubes installed below the floor that carry hot water throughout the area. This water radiates heat upward through the floor and into the house—meaning you get to keep the heat where you actually are.
Which system is right for you? The experts at Arctic Air Conditioning can help. Schedule an appointment with us to learn more about the pros and cons of each system to determine which one suits your needs and lifestyle the best.
