Ducted or Ductless?

Do you know the difference? A ducted system works with the air ducts in your home. A furnace or heat pump heats your home’s air and distributes this through these vents to registers across the home. This type of system is reliable but inconvenient if you have a home that has outside forces affecting the heating system.

Two-story homes, homes with lots of entries for natural light, or homes that receive lots of shade in certain areas all pose challenges to a ducted heating system. Your ducted heating system distributes heat evenly to all these spaces, but the second story of your home where heat rises might need less heat than the first story. Or the back of your home that’s heavily shaded with your trees might need more heat than the front of your home that receives a lot of natural lighting.

A ductless system is great for problems like these because you don’t have to rely on an air duct system. A ductless system uses individual air handlers. Each of these air handlers is strategically placed with its own thermostat so you can customize heating and cooling power depending on the unique needs of your home.

The Benefits of Going Ductless

Still not sure if you should go ductless? Consider the following benefits:

  • Cost Efficiency: ductless systems are affordable because they use less energy than central heating systems. If you want to heat a certain part of your home, you can just turn on certain air handlers rather than blasting heat throughout the whole home.
  • Sizing and Space: A ductless system takes up a lot less space. It’s much easier to install as well. A central heating system might take days to install; in many circumstances, a ductless system can be installed in under a day.
  • Noise: Ductless systems are quieter than central air conditioning systems.
  • Control: Ductless systems are smaller and easier to control. With a ductless system, you heat your home how you want to, not how the system wants to.
