How You Can Heat Your Basement

Do you have a basement in your home?

Is your basement freezing each and every winter?

Are you sick and tired of not being able to use your basement during the winter (other than for storage)?

Well, you’ve come to the right place because we’re going to tell you the best ways you can heat your basement so you can use it all year round!

Extending Your Current Ductwork

For those with an HVAC system equipped with ductwork, this is the route you may want to take. Rather than installing a brand new heating system specifically for the basement, you can opt to extend the ductwork from the upstairs of your home, into the basement. This will allow you to evenly heat your entire home while also increasing your home’s value.

However, if your furnace is not powerful enough to handle another large room, it may have to work harder and longer to reach the desired temperature on the thermostat (if it can at all). This will increase wear and tear on the unit, decrease the unit’s overall lifespan, and cause your heating bills to skyrocket.

Adding a Ductless Mini-Split

The ductless mini-split is a heating option not many people are familiar with. Increasing in popularity over the last several years, the ductless mini-split requires no additional ductwork and can easily be installed anywhere in the house (with the help of a professional).

This heating system works independently from your current heating system (but can be linked to other ductless mini-splits throughout the home if you so choose). While initial costs of this heating option are a tad high, you will be pleasantly surprised with its heating efficiency and ability to save you money on your monthly heating bills.

If you’re looking for the best option to heat the basement of your home — get in touch with our professionals. We’ll come over and see which heating option works best for your home and your own personal needs. Just give us a call and we’ll be there!
