One of the greatest aspects of homeownership is the freedom to expand on your home if your family grows. However, adding to your home means figuring out all sorts of basic considerations.
For example, how will you wire electricity to the new wing? What kinds of heating and cooling options do you have?
Ducted systems like central air conditioning and furnaces become more complex once you expand your home. You might need to replace your current HVAC units with heating and cooling that can handle the increased load.
You’ll also certainly have to increase the amount of ductwork across your home, adding unappealing ducts to connect the new part of the home to the existing system.
It’s time-consuming, expensive, unsightly, and inefficient. We don’t only mean inefficient from a project expediency standpoint but from an environmental perspective too.
Ductless mini splits are a far more prudent option as you okay the plans for more rooms to be connected to

Owning a small home affords you the freedom to eschew many of the trappings of everyday life. You’ve learned to live minimally, as you can only fit so much in your home. You’ve detached from material items and found value in other aspects of life.
You deserve adequate heating and cooling for your home, no matter its size, the same as anyone else does. However, you’ve struggled to find options that work for your small property, as furnaces are comically large, and central air conditioners just don’t make sense.
A ductless mini split is the solution you need to cool and warm your small space. Here’s why.
Outdoor Compressors Aren’t Space Hogs
Ductless mini split systems require at least two components: the compressor or condenser and the air-handling unit. The compressor goes outside in your backyard or side yard, and the air-handling units

Ductless mini splits are a rising technology. You’ve probably heard friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues remark on their mini split units. However, you’ve used traditional HVAC all your life, and you aren’t sure why you should consider switching now.
Are mini splits really more energy-efficient than traditional HVAC? And if so, why?
Yes, ductless mini splits are far better for our planet than furnaces and central air conditioning, and it comes down to a few very simple reasons.
The first is the absence of ducts.
Ducts are not the best means of delivering hot or cold air by a long shot. They have teeny-tiny gaps and openings that allow air to escape. Those gaps can become more pronounced the longer you have your ducts, often unbeknownst to you.
About 20 to 30 percent of the air that travels through your ducts from your furnace or air conditioner is lost. That air exits through the gaps in the ductwork, which can explain why it
