What is the Best Solution for Heating a Home Addition
By Mark J. Donovan
|When building an addition questions inevitably come up on how to heat the home addition. Should you use the home’s existing heating system? Is the existing heating system large enough to support the additional living space? Should a separate heating system be installed in the home addition? What type of supplementary heating system should be installed in the home addition? All of these are very valid questions and the best person to answer your questions on how to heat a home addition is an HVAC contractor/technician.
An HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) contractor can either be found working independently or for a home heating fuel supply company.
I have used both on previous home addition projects and each is capable of providing you with excellent answers on how to heat a home addition.
In the situation where the existing home heating furnace is inadequate, he can discuss alternative options including putting in a larger furnace or heating the home addition with a separate standalone heat system.
|There are a number of choices for standalone heat systems that are ideal for home additions including wall and floor mounted units.
Alternatively you can also consider installing vented or ventless heaters in the new home addition. There are some ornamentally attractive gas stoves that can pump out an incredible amount of heat that are ideal for room additions.
So if you are building a home addition talk to a local HVAC contractor to answer your questions on how to heat your home addition.
You will be surprised by the number of home heating options that are available to you.
