Recently, I decided to add an addition to my house.
It was a big decision to make plus a extravagant one.
I not only wanted to open up the main floor plan, despite the fact that I also wanted to add an extra room. I’d regularly dreamed of having a sunroom or a screened in porch where I could relax plus entertain, so this was the perfect chance to build one from scratch. I knew that I couldn’t afford both, so I had a tough decision to make. A screened in porch would allow me to feel like I was outside while keeping the bugs away. A sunroom would feel more enclosed plus indoors, but it would be more utilized. I ended up deciding on a sunroom because I wanted to care about the space all year round! Keeping this in mind, I decided to install a ductless mini split system for extra heat plus air. A ductless mini split was a great way to add heat plus air without attaching to the existing HVAC duct. It was easy to use plus it ran efficiently. The sunroom wasn’t a giant room, so the ductless mini split system would have no concern keeping up with the temperature demands. I wouldn’t have this same comfort with a screened in porch because there was no insulation. The only choice for air would be a ceiling fan, plus even that wouldn’t supply the most comfort. I’m glad I went with the sunroom over the screened porch, because I’m able to comfortably use it all year long.
