- A single system for both cooling and heating your home
- Individual temperature control per room
- Space Saver
- Great Indoor Air Quality
3 Ways to Incorporate a Ductless System in Your Ottawa Home
Some homeowners decide to have both central heating and cooling and a heat pump installed in their home. This is what’s known as supplemental heating and cooling. It’s when certain rooms need a little extra help to stay climatized. Some examples of supplemental heating and cooling include:
A home addition adds to the square footage of your house. If your central air systems aren’t large enough to adequately condition your home’s extra space, you might choose to install a heat pump in your addition to keep it as comfortable as the rest of your home.
If your garage has been turned into a new space that you can use all year long, you most likely need some way to keep it cool and warm throughout the year. This is where a heat pump can be extremely useful. Keep your garage comfortable all year long without affecting the temperature of the rest of your house.
Certain rooms–even if they’re not additions to the original house–can be difficult to cool and heat throughout the year. Usually rooms like sunrooms, basements, attics, and rooms above the garage can be poorly insulated and may not stay cool or warm enough through the use of your central air. If this is the case with one or more rooms in your home, you may want to invest in a heat pump to pick up the slack.
Which Ductless System is Right for You?
Ductless Air Conditioner
A ductless air conditioner is an HVAC system that works outside of any pre-existing ductwork in your home. It’s installed with minimal invasion of your home. It includes one outdoor unit and several indoor registers mounted on walls or ceilings.
While a central air conditioner cools your home by physically cooling the warm air with refrigerant, a ductless air conditioner moves the heat in your home outside. Unlike a traditional central air conditioner, a ductless air conditioner’s many air handlers can be set to different temperatures, so you can choose the perfect temperature for each room in your house.
Ductless Heat Pump
A ductless heat pump is very similar to a ductless air conditioner as it doesn’t need pre-existing ductwork to function. It’s also a quick, minimally-invasive installation. And, it displaces heat instead of creating its own cool air. The main difference between the two systems is that ductless AC can only cool your home.
A ductless heat pump can be used to both cool and heat your home, depending on the season. During the summer, a ductless heat pump removes heat and humidity from the air and sends it outside. During the winter, its function reverses and it takes the humidity and heat out of the air outside and moves it inside your home.
