Adding Heat and Air to Home Additions

Are you expanding your home? Whether you are adding on another bedroom, bathroom or even expanding your garage, you want to ensure these new spaces have adequate climate control. However, depending on where you are at in your remodel, it may be tricky or expensive to connect new additions to your existing HVAC system. Here are some HVAC solutions to consider at different stages of remodeling.

Planning Stage

If you have not begun building your addition, you still have options. It is easier to connect your new space to your existing HVAC if the construction has not started. Consult with your HVAC provider to determine how much it would cost to add more duct work to connect the new room.


If you have already begun to build, it may not be too late to add in duct work. Talk to your contractor and local HVAC installer about the difficulty of connecting your new room. If you are adding on to your garage, this can be a great opportunity to add climate control to this area.


For additions that are already in place, you can still add air and heat with a mini-split. This is also an option in the planning and mid-construction phases. These isolated HVAC units do not require duct work and are efficient for climate control in rooms that may not need heat or air all the time, like a garage.

It is easier to connect a new space to your HVAC system before construction is completed, but it can always be added later. Mini-splits can be an economical option when adding new duct work can be labor intensive. Talk to your local HVAC installer for options to get the air and heat you need for your new addition.
