Options For Upgrading Your HVAC System

Replace Your Existing HVAC Unit — You could choose to meet the additional heating and cooling demand by installing a new HVAC systemThis will give you the convenience of having your home addition tied into your air duct system and all rooms served by the same system. Replacement is a particularly good option if your existing HVAC system is more than 10 years old, as the unit is probably ready for an upgrade anyway. However, if your existing HVAC unit is less than 10 years old, it may not be a justifiable expense.

Install A Ductless System — If your existing HVAC unit is still fairly new and you don’t want to go to the expense of replacing it unnecessarily, a good solution is to install a ductless heat pump that’s dedicated just to your home addition. Not only does this option spare you the hassle and expense of replacing your central HVAC unit, it allows you to “win back” the space you would have otherwise dedicated to ductwork.

Replace Your Current Systems with a Heat Pump — A heat pump is a device that can save you money and time with its dual capabilities.
