How to Heat Your Cincinnati Home Office


Many Cincinnati residents are working from home these days, whether by telecommuting or self-employment. One of the keys to success when working from home is having a dedicated home office space – for many, this is a converted space which was formerly used for another purpose, or an addition to the main home. To maintain comfort and productivity throughout the winter, your home office needs a reliable heating system.

Heating Converted Office Spaces

Many at-home workers choose to convert space in their homes to office space. This is often a basement, garage, or attic. In this case, these areas may not be connected to your home’s central heating system, as they were not heated when serving their old purpose.

Heating Office Additions

When building an office addition, the new space is probably located away from the home’s center, making it more difficult to tie in with the main home’s heating system. You’ll need to plan heating and cooling for the space, as well as insulation and window quality, which will affect the room’s heating and cooling loads.

For heating home office space, you have a few options:

  • Tie in to your home’s existing heating system. First, you will need to determine if your current furnace has the capacity to heat the additional square footage appropriately; if not, you’ll need to upgrade your furnace. Ductwork will also need to be extended to the area.
  • Install a heating system to serve the space. Ductless mini-split systems are a popular option for heating and cooling additions and previously unconditioned spaces, giving the space its own HVAC system that won’t affect the main heater in the home.

When adding heating to a new home office space, it is important to work with HVAC professionals. Their solutions will keep your heating system balanced and efficient, so you can enjoy warmth in the office and throughout the home.
