It was plenty of work setting up a couple of current rooms in the attic space.
With a growing family, the two of us just needed all that extra space. While in the process though, I wanted to call in the Heating and A/C professionals to extend the HVAC duct system into the attic space; Upon inspection of the rooms and the Heating and A/C system, they said they could not extend the HVAC duct. I was unsure what they were getting at and then they explained. I was told that the Heating and A/C system was not sized officially for the additional space and it would struggle and end up dying prematurely. It would also cause huge energy United Statesge spikes and I absolutely didn’t want that. The Heating and A/C professionals commanded that I install a ductless mini cut in the attic space. They said it would have Heating and A/C zone control for both rooms for customized temperatures and if I was using the rooms for guests, it would be perfect. Well, the two of us opted to go for it and they were right, the ductless mini splits were amazing. I worked to finish the rest of the room making sure the drywall was taken care of, the mudding, and the painting. It was a little bit of a hassle, but I must say, the rooms are looking great now. The thing is, the two of us just never stored much stuff up in the attic and I thought it would be nice to have a couple of rooms up there! Given, there is the 1 staircase and door going into the attic, but the numerous rooms now have their own doors respectively for comfort and privacy, one room is going to be occupied by our eldest son and he’s already gleeful about having his own temperature control unit.
