Keeping Your Cool In Your Converted Space This Summer
Thanks to the many home improvement shows on television today, more and more people are learning how to make the most of spaces in their home that don’t get a lot of use. Areas like basements, garages, attics and even outdoor sheds are being converted into viable living spaces. Whether they’re changing into a home office, recreation room, crafting area, home theater or just an extra area for the family to congregate, these converted spaces are making people love their leisure time at home.

However, there is sometimes one small problem… comfort. Often, these converted areas don’t have access to the home’s ductwork. And that can make it difficult to keep them cool in the summer and warm in the winter, which in turn can limit the time families get to enjoy in those rooms. The whole point of creating another area in the home is so that there’s more room – so it seems unfortunate that these areas can only be used when the weather outside is just right. The good news? It doesn’t have to be that way!
People are turning to ductless to keep their converted areas comfortable.
Adding ductwork in your home can be an expensive, messy undertaking. While it’s a choice during a comprehensive remodeling, it might not make sense for you to tear down walls or tear up floorboards when you’re converting your space. However, not having access to ductwork can seriously hinder the comfort level of those new areas. But when you consider ductless cooling and heating, you can keep those spaces the perfect temperature for you and your family, no matter what time of year it is.
That’s because ductless can cool your space in the summer, and heat it in the winter – all by using the same unit. Ductless cooling and heating works by using heat pump technology, which transfers heat rather than generates it. So you can enjoy year-round use of your room – even one that is standalone like an outdoor shed. Ductless doesn’t need to hook into your current HVAC system – it has its own components and operates without your central air or furnace. In fact, some people choose ductless for their entire home, by taking advantage of ductless mini-split systems.
Ductless cooling and heating offers a number of benefits to homeowners.
When you choose to install ductless in your converted space, you’re making a great choice! Ductless offers many advantages, in addition to providing you with the comfort you and your family need. Check out the list below to learn more about the advantages of going ductless:
- Energy efficiency. Ductless systems are built to be highly efficient, especially when compared to other forms of room cooling and heating, such as window AC or space heaters. In fact, utility companies often provide customers with incentives for installing ductless systems, because they are so highly efficient.
- Targeted control. Because these units are built to keep a designated area comfortable, they are also very easy to control. Most homeowners choose systems that are easily operated via remote control. Some even can be controlled via the home’s Wi-Fi from an app that can be downloaded to a Smartphone.
- Ease of installation. Because there is no need to install additional ductwork, installation mess and construction is limited. A single unit can easily be installed within a day. Most systems only require that a 3” hole be drilled for cables and wires connecting the indoor unit to the outdoor. Comfort in no time!
Not to mention, ductless cooling and heating is made to mount on the wall or ceiling, so it won’t hinder your view like a window AC, or take up valuable floor area like a space heater. Ductless will blend seamlessly into your décor, bringing you the comfort, efficiency and control you need. Your converted space can truly be a year-round area in your home, enjoyed no matter what the season.
