Homes like this lovely ranch home in Lincoln University, PA are prevalent through Southeastern PA.
Owners love their home and the area so much, they choose to add on rather than move.
That’s exactly what the owners of this home did- they built an addition, but the addition was going to need its own heating and cooling system. They gave us a call here at Oxford Plumbing and Heating to see what we would suggest to solve the problems, without throwing their energy bills out of whack.
Problem: New addition to the home needed a separate heating and cooling system that wouldn’t break the bank.
Solution: A single zone Carrier ductless heating and cooling system will provide the addition with the comfort the family deserves, every day of the year, without breaking the budget on energy bills.
When we came out to look at the addition, we thought about all the options available. Some people might opt for electric baseboard heating, but it takes a long time to make a space like this comfortable, and it doesn’t solve keeping the space cool, especially with the hot and humid summers we’ve been experiencing.
A Carrier Ductless system can provide both heating and cooling solutions in one, making them a perfect choice for sunrooms, basements, attics, and additions like this one.
Carrier ductless systems are composed of two basic parts.
There’s an outdoor condenser unit that uses high-efficiency inverter technology with a heat pump that is connected to an indoor, usually wall-mounted unit.
The indoor unit is mounted high on a wall, out of the way, and is able to distribute air evenly throughout the space, eliminating hot and cold spots.
Best of all, these units can act as heaters and air conditioning, providing you with complete comfort at the touch of a button!
Carrier ductless units don’t require ducts to work, saving a lot of money- and construction- during installation.
The system also monitors temperature and humidity in a room and can be adjusted by a convenient remote control, letting you control the comfort level to your preferences easily.
Because the units use inverter technology which allows them to use the minimum amount of energy possible to keep your comfort level consistent, they end up being one of the most efficient and affordable ways to heat and cool additions like this one in Lincoln University, PA.
We also love that the systems are super quiet, operating only at 29 dB when turned on. Unlike noisy and clanky window air conditioners, Carrier ductless units are so quiet, you’ll never have to turn up the TV or walk out of the room to talk on the phone- you might even forget the system’s on!
By creating a separate zone of comfort for the addition, the homeowners will be able to heat or cool this space when it’s in use- and turn off the unit or place it in power-save mode when not in use.
This feature lets homeowners save a lot of money on energy bills, by letting you only pay for the energy you use when you’re using the space.
We know the homeowners will really appreciate this system in the Fall and Spring.
When those first frosty days come in the Fall, but you don’t want to turn the heat in the whole house on just yet, the homeowners can turn on the Carrier Ductless units and get that touch of heat to make a perfect start to the day over morning coffee.
And on those unexpectedly warm days we get in late October, that touch of coolness is only a moment away.
We know our homeowners in Lincoln University will be happy all year long with their system, which will provide all the comfort they need- even on the coldest and hottest days of the year.
