Have you been wondering if ductless heating is right for your home? You’re not alone! Homeowners across Ontario are making the switch to these mini ductless wonders. These versatile systems provide both heating and cooling in an incredibly energy-efficient way that’s easily customizable to your way of living.
If you’re not sure that a ductless HVAC system is right for you, here’s an easy checklist to go through of 5 situations where ductless HVAC is perfect, from needing a unit for a smaller space, to priding yourself on choosing the eco-friendly option.
1. New Construction or Adding on to Your Home
Are you building a new home or considering adding on to your existing home? Ductless systems are ideal for these situations. Because they don’t rely on ductwork, you won’t have to worry about adding ductwork to your new home or expanding your current ductwork to accommodate your home addition.
Ductless systems are made up of an outdoor compressor unit and multiple air handlers that are usually installed high up on the walls of certain rooms. The whole system is connected by a conduit that includes the power cable, refrigerant tubing, and a condensate drain. They’re much easier to install in new construction.
2. Eco-Friendly Option
Do you pride yourself on making the eco-friendly choice? You can’t get “greener” than a ductless HVAC system. That’s because they use heat pump technology and run entirely on electricity. That means no fossil fuel usage. And you can run just one mini split at a time compared to central AC or heating where the entire home must be heated or cooled.
100% of the energy generated by ductless systems go toward heating or cooling your home. Compare this to a high-efficiency gas furnace with an AFUE rating of 95% that still has a 5% energy loss. If you want the eco-friendly option for your home, ductless is the way to go.
3. Family Members Who Run Hot or Cold
Are your household members frequently arguing over what temperature the thermostat should be set at? Ductless systems are ideal for households where there’s no consensus about what the perfect temperature should be. With an air handler in each room or zone of your home, each person can set the thermostat at their preferred temperature.
4. Improved Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
Do you suffer from allergies, asthma, or respiratory illnesses? Traditional HVAC systems rely on ductwork to deliver the conditioned air to the rooms of a home. When ductwork accumulates dirt, dust, and debris, these items get blown throughout the house. You can look forward to improved IAQ with a ductless system.
5. Easier Installation
Compared to traditional HVAC systems, ductless mini splits are easier to install. Of course, you’ll still need to rely on a professional HVAC contractor for their installation to make sure they’re installed properly. That’s us! Contact us today to learn more about ductless heating and cooling.
