About 2 years ago, my husband Justin and I decided to create a master study room suite in our home. The people I was with and I were sleepy of our cramped study room, lack of closet section and long walk to the family powder room. It took major planning to figure out the best way to redesign the available space, but our best option was to enclose the back porch and make it section of the master study room. The people I was with and I ended up in a major renovation project, requiring the installation of plumbing and electric lines. The cost of professional plumbing, electric and general contracting services added up actually hastily. There wasn’t a lot left in the budget for heating and cooling. Temperature control in our apartment is handled by a forced air gas furnace and central a/c. It relies on air duct concealed in the walls and ceilings to convey the conditioned air. The idea is configured for a particular demand and square footage. Justin and I were distraught the Heating and Air Conditioning idea would be unable to handle the larger study room, cost us a fortune in yearly utility bills, and fail to deliver comfort. Hoping to find a more effective and economical alternative, the people I was with and I called a local Heating and Air Conditioning contractor for a free estimate. He advocated that the people I was with and I install a ductless mini split system. A ductless mini split is super compact, permanently installed, and provides both heating and cooling capacity. Installation required little more than a small hole in an exterior wall and access to electricity. The ductless heat pump wasn’t overly luxurious and allows us independent control over the temperature in our current study room.
