This is since extending ductwork is costly. And that your heating and cooling system may not be work properly with the heightened load, as it was sized without taking the addition into consideration.
One of the most affordable solutions is to install a mini-split. This system provides energy-efficient heating and cooling, with no ductwork needed. Find out more about mini-splits and how adding one to your addition could be a fantastic fit.

Heat pumps are highly energy efficient as they transfer heat to make your room cozier. In fact, many have earned ENERGY STAR® certification, which may make you eligible for added rebates and lower your utility costs for a long time.
