Is a Ductless Heat Pump Right for Your Home?
Unlike ductless air conditioners, ductless heat pumps have the ability to heat and cool your home. So, if you’re looking for a year-round heating and cooling solution for your home, but you don’t have pre-existing ductwork, a ductless heat pump installation could be exactly what you need for your Toronto home. Ductless heat pumps can be used as a primary or supplemental heating and cooling source, which means that most homes in Toronto would benefit from their installation.
Benefits of a ductless heat pump
Whether you’re using your ductless heat pump as your primary or secondary source of heating and cooling, you will experience a noticeable difference in your overall home comfort. Having indoor units placed around your home allows you to heat and cool your home evenly. It also gives you the option to use zoned heating and cooling to precisely adjust the temperatures in different rooms around your home.
One of the main reasons the installation of ductless heat pumps is becoming increasingly popular across the Greater Toronto Area is because the systems are extremely efficient. Every ductless heat pump is Energy Star rated, which means that right out of the box, they are one of the most efficient HVAC options on the market, and features like zoned heating and cooling allow you to stretch those savings even further.
For many homeowners who don’t have pre-existing ductwork in their Toronto homes, ductless heat pumps are a logical choice because of their easy installation. Ductless heat pumps are similar to ductless air conditioners in terms of their physical appearance and installation. Your HVAC technician will mount the indoor units in the respective rooms around your home, but in terms of structural renovations, all they’ll need to do is drill a hole that is a couple of inches wide in your wall to connect the outdoor unit to the indoor units.
What are the installation options?
As we’ve noted, the installation of a ductless heat pump in your Toronto home is relatively straightforward, but there are still options when it comes to how you want the indoor units installed. The three options you’ll have to choose from are:
- Ductless wall mounted
- Ductless ceiling cassette
- Ductless ceiling concealed
When you are comparing the efficiency of a ductless heat pump to other heating options, including electric radiators, boilers, and furnaces, there is no comparison. However, it’s important to note that unlike ductless air conditioners, ductless heat pumps are not an adequate primary heat source below a certain temperature. So if you live in an extremely cold climate, you may want to air on the side of caution and install a secondary heat source like a radiator, furnace, or boiler.
Frequently Asked Questions About
Ductless Air Conditioners
What makes a ductless air conditioning solution more efficient than central air?
Ductless systems are more efficient than traditional central air because there is no ductwork. The longer your ducts are, the more your air flow efficiency decreases. A ductless system provides cool air directly from the mounted unit.
How do ductless AC systems work?
A ductless AC unit sucks heat out of your home and directs it to an outdoor unit that uses refrigerant and heat transfer to blow cool air back into your home. This process is reversed in the winter when you use your unit as a heat pump.
What is zoned temperature control?
Zoned temperature control refers to how ductless AC units provide temperature control within an individual room or area of your house. Each unit is programmable and will allow you to set different temperature ranges throughout your home. This can save you a lot of money each month as you can prioritize cooling the rooms that you use the most during the summer.
Is a ductless air conditioning system cheaper to install than central air?
A ductless system is typically cheaper to install. Your total cost will depend on what brand you purchase, how many units you want to install, and if you require any special accommodations. You will also save even more due to the fact that you don’t have to install ductwork.
How long will a ductless air conditioner last?
There are virtually no differences when it comes to the lifespans for a ductless air conditioning unit and central air. A ductless system typically lasts for up to 20 years.
