A ductless mini-split mounted on the wall can efficiently add heat and air conditioning to a room. Ideal for areas of the home where there is no ductwork, this is a much safer option than a space heater and can be left on when unattended keeping the room warm.
A homeowner in Bedford contacted us looking for an option to make her sunroom usable all year round, particularly during the cold New England winter. We suggested a ductless mini-split in her sunroom.
Turn Your 3-Season Room Into a 4-Season Room
Mounted on the wall of a sunroom, a ductless mini-split can be very efficient at keeping the room warm and usable during the winter months. It can also keep the room cool on those very hot days with its air conditioning setting. A ductless unit can heat and cool a large area, or a small home. It is best used for supplementing additional heat and air conditioning or adding heating and cooling options to a room that does not have ductwork.
Most sunrooms do not have existing ductwork. It can be costly to put this in, connecting it to the home’s HVAC system. A ductless mini-split is a much more efficient and cost-effective way to use this space during the winter months.
Installing a Ductless Mini-Split
The ductless system mounts high on the wall in the sunroom and an outdoor air compressor is located outside of the home. The installation process is relatively non-invasive, particularly when considering what adding ductwork to the sunroom would entail.
The homeowner in Bedford opted to install a ductless unit in her sunroom and is comfortably enjoying the winter and this extra space in her home.
