HVAC options for 400 square foot addition
I am pulling off an old shed and adding a roughly 400 square foot addition off my kitchen. It will be separated by a door (i.e. not open to kitchen). I currently have an oil burner fired baseboard hot water system in my 1700 square foot house.
We are going to go with a polished concrete floor, and I was thinking it would be nice to have radiant heat. But I think it would be a lot cheaper just to go with baseboard which we have in the rest of the house. I was also looking at the mini-split heat pumps because of the small size of the room, but it gets very cold here in the winter.
I'm in Vermont so we have a lot of cold weather, but I also would like AC because it will get a lot of sun in the summer. I'd like something a little nicer than just tossing in a window unit.
My broad question is whether any of you have dealt with these parameters and what do you think the best option is, cost being a significant consideration but not the only one, I think my budget overall is sufficient for any of the options but I'd rather spend wisely.
