HVAC Considerations for Home Additions in Phoenix
No matter the reasons that you choose to undertake home additions in Phoenix, the HVAC for the new addition must be a prime consideration. While there are a number of different options available, they all are dependent on taking a number of factors into consideration.
Decisions regarding HVAC for an addition start with a load calculation or an energy audit on the home to determine current system capacity before the design phase begins. If your current system is powerful enough, you may simply be able to extend the ductwork into the new home addition and re-balance its airflow to make sure that all areas of your home are still getting the right amount of air.
If a load calculation reveals that your current A/C can’t handle the needs of the new addition, you will have to consider upgrading your cooling system and adding new ductwork or looking at a ductless system. This allows you to control each room or area in the addition from its own small indoor unit.
