If you've decided that you and your family want a little bit more space in your home, but are happy with your current location, an addition might be just what you need. Adding on to your home increases the square footage of your house, with the added bonus that you can customize the space to your exact specifications. If you're considering an addition to your home, read on for a brief guide to heating and cooling an addition and adding heating zones to your existing heating system.
The most efficient and convenient way to heat and cool your new addition is usually to include an HVAC expansion in the construction plan. By connecting the addition to your existing ductwork, it will be easier to control the temperature of the whole house. Remember to talk to your local Trane Comfort Specialist to make sure that your HVAC system is rated to service the added square footage. And if running ductwork to the addition isn't an option, you might also consider installing a ductless heating and cooling system for the new area of the house. These systems are relatively low profile, and won't take up window space the way a window-unit air conditioner will.
If you'd like to learn more about adding zones to a heating system, contact your local Trane Comfort Specialist today. Our Trane dealers will help you come up with a plan to heating and cool your addition that fits your home's layout and your budget.
