How to Heat and Cool a Bonus Room

Although a bonus room can give you extra space in your home, it can also be frustrating when it’s hot. You may have trouble properly cooling it, even when the room is part of the original design. In this article, Baggett Heating & Cooling looks at how to heat and cool a bonus room.

Add Ductwork to Your System

If you have a system with ductwork, your HVAC contractor will need to alter the current configuration to help distribute the airflow properly to your bonus room. Keep in mind that your current system needs to be big enough to handle the added air conditioning needs of the extra room. Your HVAC company can measure your current system’s capacity to guarantee that it will suffice.

Mini-Split Ductless System

The mini-split system is one of the easiest ways to comfortably cool or heat a bonus room or addition to your house. These systems attach to the wall or, in some cases, can be built into the ceiling. These systems offer an easier and efficient way to heat or cool a bonus room without having to add complicated ductwork. This makes them a more affordable option. Their size and installation process require less work than the forced air system.

Window Units

If it’s only a small room, sometimes it’s more economical just to use a window unit and turn it on only when you’re using the room. A ceiling fan can help keep the air circulating in the space as well. But, make sure you only use it when you’re in the room, as it only makes you feel cool without actually dropping the room’s temperature.
