When it comes to home heating and air conditioning, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. While some homes have perfectly capable ducted systems, others may need a little extra help. That’s where ducted systems enter the picture.
Ductless systems are stand-alone units that don't require traditional air ducts. They are mounted on the wall or roof, and are frequently used to control the climate in a limited space or “zone.”
When trying to decide what type of HVAC system to install in your home, there are two key things to consider:
1. What’s already there? Does your house have existing ductwork? Is the problem related to the HVAC system? Sometimes, homes with under- or over-sized HVAC systems experience uneven temperatures throughout the space. If this is the case, it may be more efficient in the long run to get an appropriately sized system, as opposed to installing a zone solution.
2. How big is the problem you’re trying to solve? If you’ve got a single room (like a converted attic) that isn’t attached to your existing ductwork, a zonal solution is perfect. There's no need to install new ducts or resize your current system. However, if you're looking for a whole home solution, using multiple ductless options may not be the most efficient choice.
