Which Ductless System Is Right for You?
If you are looking into ductless system installation for your home in the Greater Toronto Area, there are two styles of ductless HVAC systems to choose from.
Ductless Air Conditioner
Ductless air conditioners work in a similar fashion to a central air conditioning system, only they don’t require ductwork. Instead, a series of indoor units that dispense cool air are connected to a singular outdoor condenser by a compact hose. The indoor units are independently programable, which allows you to enjoy the efficiency and comfort benefits of zoned cooling.
Ductless Heat Pump
Unlike ductless air conditioners, which can only cool your home, ductless heat pumps can both heat and cool. They use the same setup of a singular outdoor unit and multiple indoor units, but they have the internal technology to reverse the cooling process that is used to draw heat out of your indoor air to pull heat out of the outdoor air to heat your home in the winter. These systems are extremely efficient and can significantly reduce your utility bills.
Save On Heat Pumps With the Canada Greener Homes Grant
If you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint as a homeowner, save money, and enjoy even and reliable home comfort, look no further than the incentives provided by the Canadian Greener Homes Grant through Spring Home. Currently, the government of Canada is offering eligible homeowners rebates of up to $5,000 for energy-efficient retrofit installations including heat pumps. This way, you can enjoy a comfortable home, reduce your carbon footprint, and make a little money back on an energy-efficient system.
What are the installation options?
Another benefit of ductless systems is that installation is a breeze. The outdoor units are somewhat standard in terms of their style and makeup, but there are four options to choose from for your indoor ductless unit installation in Toronto:
- Ductless Wall Mounted
- Ductless Ceiling Cassette
- Ductless Floor Mounted
- Ductless Ceiling Concealed
We could provide a complete breakdown comparing the specs of a ductless installation in Toronto versus the alternatives, which are window air conditioners, forced air HVAC systems, and high velocity air conditioners, but the results would be more or less the same across the board. Ductless systems are the most efficient option available, and due to their zoned heating and cooling capabilities, they can also provide superior home comfort. The fact that they are relatively easy to install is just another one of their many benefits, but it’s definitely an important factor to consider if you live in a home that doesn’t have pre-existing ductwork.

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.
Air Conditioning Options for Toronto Homes Without Ductwork
It’s a common misconception that your only options for air conditioning as a homeowner are unreliable and clunky window air conditioners or a central AC. If your home is very old or very new and is not fitted with ductwork, this can make you feel stuck. Fortunately, there are options for air conditioning for households without pre existing ductwork: ductless ACs and heat pumps. These systems work to cool your home without the use of ductwork. They’re minimally invasive to install, quiet, and compact. This way you can enjoy effective and efficient home comfort throughout the summer without settling for a window AC or splurging to have ductwork installed in your home.
Comfort & Efficiency
The first thing Toronto homeowners will notice when they choose to complete the installation of a ductless air conditioner or heat pump is a dramatic increase in their home comfort and the efficiency of their HVAC system. The reason for this is the heating and cooling capacity of these units is controlled by inverter technology. This might sound complicated, but essentially, it’s the technology that allows the compressor in your ductless system to adjust its speed in order to match the heat gain or loss in any given room by constantly monitoring the temperature. By cooling and heating your home in this way, it ensures that your ductless system will never over heat or over cool your home.
The result? Maximum comfort and efficiency.
- Comfort: One of the main benefits people notice after the installation of their ductless air conditioner or heat pump is completed, is the improvement to their overall home comfort. These systems are whisper quiet because the condenser is located outside, and because they don’t use ductwork, the sound from the airflow is minimal. Having multiple indoor units also allows you to create cooling zones because each unit can be controlled independently to suit the temperature requirements of each unique room in your home.
- Efficiency: All ductless systems are Energy Star rated, which means they have high SEER ratings and use as little energy as possible to heat and cool your home. They are far superior to window air conditioning units, but even Toronto homeowners who opt for the installation of a ductless system over a conventional central air system can expect to see a 30% decrease in their heating and cooling costs.
Ductless Heating for Cold Spots in Your Home
Sometimes if your home is older or drafty, you may experience some cold spots in your home even when you have your furnace running at full power. This is because some rooms, houses, and spaces are just naturally more drafty or difficult to heat. Many homeowners in Toronto with cold spots in their homes rely on heat pumps and ductless systems to condition their air more thoroughly. Using ductless heating can help to alleviate cold spots, provide more even and effective heating, and elevate your home’s overall comfort.
