Ever since the two of us moved into our new home more than six years ago, we’ve been talking about putting an addition onto the back of the house.
The people I was with and I need extra space because we’ve had a few kids and now our in-laws are moving in with us too, however we’re building an extra more than one story addition and so now the two of us are trying to figure out exactly what we’re going to be doing with the heating and cooling system in the addition.
We’re going to add heating vents and air duct to our existing Heating and A/C unit that’s already in the house, however our Heating and A/C serviceman told us that the load on our existing gas furnace and a/c unit is really just going to be too much for it to handle. I believe that means that we’re going to have to replace the Heating and A/C system in the new home so the two of us will have a single that will labor for the addition as well. It’s either that or the two of us will have to get more than one separate smaller Heating and A/C units that run with more than one separate temperature controls. I’m not sure which would be better for us as far as our heating and cooling bills go from now on. I believe it’s various of a single or a half dozen of the other when it comes down to it. If the two of us do have to get a greater Heating and A/C unit, it’s going to cost us a lot more up front, I guess. I believe the two of us are going to hire an Heating and A/C business to come and provide us an estimate before the two of us absolutely start building the new addition! Hopefully the Heating and A/C serviceman will be able to provide us his opinion on what our best occasion will be.
