About many years ago, my hubby Justin as well as I decided to create a master home office suite in our home. Both of us were tired of our cramped home office, lack of closet section as well as long walk to the family washroom. It took major planning to figure out the best way to redesign the available space… Our best pick was to enclose the back porch as well as make it part of the master home office. Both of us ended up in a major renovation project, requiring the replacement of plumbing as well as electric lines. The cost of professional plumbing, electric as well as general contracting services added up particularly abruptly. There wasn’t a lot left in the budget for heating as well as cooling. Temperature control in our lake house is handled by a forced air gas furnace as well as central cooling system. It relies on ductwork concealed in the walls as well as ceilings to transfer the conditioned air. The plan is configured for a unique demand as well as square footage! Justin as well as I were uneasy the Heating as well as A/C plan would be unable to handle the larger home office, cost us a fortune in quarterly energy costs, as well as fail to give comfort. Hoping to find a more effective as well as economical alternative, the two of us called a local Heating as well as A/C dealer for a free estimate. He requested that the two of us install a ductless mini split system. A ductless mini split is super compact, permanently installed, as well as provides both heating as well as cooling capacity. Installation required little more than a small hole in an exterior wall as well as access to electricity. The ductless heat pump wasn’t overly overpriced as well as allows us independent control over the temperature in our new home office.
