You finally finish adding an addition onto your home. You have already spent thousands of dollars and exhausted months living with a building contractor going in and out of your home, but finally you can begin to enjoy the new space. Or can you? If you didn’t have a heating and air conditioning contractor have a look at your HVAC system, you probably aren’t going to be enjoying much of anything in the new addition until you do. Only a certified HVAC contractor should be installing or extending heating and cooling equipment in your home.
A common problem that many people who add additions to their home experience is inadequate heating and cooling in the new space. Many building contractors will simply add additional duct work to the existing system and hope that it is enough to get the space to a comfortable temperature. Unfortunately, your heating and cooling systems were probably installed to handle only the square footage of your home before you added on the addition. If you added on an additional floor to your home, you may have an even bigger problem.
What can you do to fix the problem?
Consider having a certified technician from Four Seasons Heating and Air Conditioning out to evaluate your situation. Our technicians will be able to determine the source of the problem. If your units are not big enough to support the extra space, you have a couple options.
First of all, you could simply upgrade your current HVAC system to a larger unit. If that isn’t an option, you could also add an additional heating and cooling system to the home. Usually if the addition is small, all you should have to do is upgrade the unit. If you added something large like an additional story to the home, you may want to consider installing a separate unit. Having two heating and cooling systems will ensure that every square inch of the home will be comfortable to live in.
The technician may find that your current heating and cooling systems are big enough to handle the extra space, but that the problem is caused by the new duct work. You may need to reroute the duct work, or replace it with a better material in order to increase airflow into the new rooms. Also, you may want to consider installing a booster fan in the duct work, to help the air blow more strongly in the new parts of the home.
