Three Ways to Incorporate a Ductless System in Your Home
Many city homes in Southwestern Ontario rely on forced air furnaces and air conditioners to keep their home comfortable; however, there are other heating and cooling options available. In certain situations, it makes sense to install a ductless system that can complement your current heating system.
When undertaking a home renovation, many homeowners forget that they’ll have to run ducts to a new addition. They also might need a larger system to accommodate the extra space—increasing the cost of the renovation. In this instance, a ductless system could be the more affordable and efficient way to heat and cool the additional space. An added benefit is the zoned heating and cooling feature that a separate ductless system can provide.
In order to take advantage of every square inch of the home, many people want to use a sunroom or another three-season room year-round. To provide additional heating (or cooling) to this area of the home, homeowners will often resort to space heaters or window air conditioners. Not only do these solutions pose some safety hazards, they’re not efficient options for keeping the space comfortable. A better option in this scenario is a ductless system that provides precise heating and cooling to a specific area of your home.
There are different uses for a converted garage—a workshop, extra living space or a dedicated space for a hobby. Although more people are using garage spaces for living—they’re not typically heated or cooled. A perfect solution would be to install a ductless mini-split and have heat or air conditioning in the garage all year long.
