Ductless split system accommodates needs of addition

When my husband and I first moved to Fort Worth, Texas, we had very little money.

We were still paying off our college loans and had accepted entry level jobs. However, we just loved the area. We managed to buy a very small home on a decent-sized piece of property. The house was affordable because of the limited square footage and poor condition. Renovating just a small house was not overly time-consuming or expensive. We did most of the work ourselves. Five years later, we had added three kids, a large dog and a cat, and the house felt quite crowded. We needed to put on an addition. We were very meticulous in our planning of the construction project. It was important to us that the addition blend seamlessly into the original architecture, provide a comfortable living space and be energy efficient. We debated on how to best handle temperature control. Due to the weather extremes in Fort Worth, we require both heating and cooling. We doubted the existing heat pump could handle the additional square footage. We didn’t want to sacrifice a tremendous amount of square footage to ductwork. After considering all different options, we decided on a ductless split system. The components are wonderfully compact and accommodate just about any floorplan. We have an outdoor compressor that links to indoor air handlers in each room. The indoor air handlers are unobtrusive, mounted up high on the wall and feature independent thermostats. This allows us to customize the temperature in each room. We save money and enjoy ideal comfort.
