When To Consider An HVAC Expansion

Your HVAC system is an important feature of your home. When working well, it will add comfort to your home through changing seasons and can serve you for a long time.

However, your HVAC system needs to be reviewed from time to time. Once in a while, you may need to expand your system. Here are some situations that make it necessary to expand your HVAC system.

Energy Efficiency

Some older HVAC models are not very energy efficient. An expansion is an opportunity to improve your system's energy efficiency. The ductless AC/mini split is especially energy efficient.

You've Added Extra Space

If you've remodeled your home and added extra space, the old HVAC may not provide adequate heating /cooling for the extra space. You need to expand your HVAC system.

You Want to Create Different Temperature Zones

This is especially true for commercial buildings but may also apply to residential properties. As your business grows, your heating and cooling needs also grow.

If you own a commercial building, you may find that you are constantly getting new tenants while others move out. You may need to change your HVAC system to meet these changing needs.

As a business owner, you've no doubt had your employees bickering over temperatures. While one person may be freezing, another one is perfectly comfortable. One way to resolve such differences would be to create individual temperature zones with individual thermostats.

Individual employees will then be able to set their own temperatures, independently of the rest of the building.

Expansion Options

If your unit is large enough, that is if it's able to accommodate extra space, all you may need is to add extra ductwork for hot air and piping for hot water.

However, your System must also be not more than ten years old as older homes have different ducts from those used today.

The other option would be to completely replace your unit and that's expensive.

The middle ground would be to install a split HVAC system also called a ductless HVAC. A ductless system is not only affordable; it's also easy to install.

When your HVAC system is no longer meeting your needs, you may have to consider replacing or expanding it. Replacing your system is not always the most viable option as it is expensive and may not be necessary.

If you are adding more space to your building, need more energy efficiency or want to create temperature zones, consider expanding your system instead. If you need to expand your system consult an HVAC and ac repairs company.
