It’s important to choose the proper heating and cooling options for your finished basement to combat humidity and to control over the temperature. After all, your newly finished basement should be free of moisture and should be a comfortable space for you and your family.
When it comes to heating and cooling options for your finished basement, there are a few different ways you can go. And depending what type of system you currently have in your home, adding climate control to your basement can be a breeze! Here are some options to consider:
Extend your HVAC system
This is something you should don’t DIY because it could have negative consequences not only for your HVAC system but for the comfort in your home as well. A certified HVAC technician needs to come and assess your system, take measurements, and determine whether your unit can handle cooling and heating the extra space. Additional ductwork will also need to be planned out accordingly. While this might be the least convenient route to go, you won’t have to worry about buying a new HVAC system if your current one can handle the increased load. In this case, generally speaking, you’ll only need to have extra ductwork installed.
Going ductless is a great option for many homeowners. Especially if you’re in a situation where the finished basement was completed without heating or cooling or it isn’t feasible to use your current HVAC system, ductless mini split systems are ideal. With relatively minor installation that isn’t as invasive as ductwork, mini split systems can heat and cool all through using one unit. And depending on the size of your finished basement, there are options to have multiple units to control the climate in each room accordingly.
In addition to these heating and cooling options, consider adding a dehumidifier unit to your basement to help prevent excess moisture.
