The ideal choice of heating system is affected by your exact requirements and preferences. We’ve compiled a list of things to consider to help you decide between ductless and traditional heating solutions.

Ductless vs. Traditional Heating Systems

  • Aesthetics – Instead of vents, the ductless system requires indoor air handlers mounted into the ceiling or on the wall. While the cabinets are slim and modern-looking, they are visible.
  • Energy efficiency – Ductless technology eliminates the energy waste of ductwork, offers the benefits of zoned conditioning and provides higher potential energy efficiency.

  • Existing ductwork – If you already have ductwork installed in the home, staying with central heating is cost-effective. Without ductwork, a ductless system is going to save you money. It will also avoid a lot of renovation and mess, requiring only a three-inch hole in an exterior wall for the conduit.
  • Investment – In general, traditional heating systems are more expensive. However ductless costs go up depending on the number of indoor units and efficiency ratings.
  • Sound levels– Although the operational sounds of traditional heating has been reduced in recent years, nothing quite compares to the whisper-quiet of ductless equipment.
  • Square footage – While ductless systems allow for multiple air handlers with a single outdoor unit, homes larger than 2,00 square feet are a challenge. You might do better with the power of central heating.
  • Zone control – You can have zoning with central heating, but you’ll need internal dampers in the ductwork. Ductless systems excel at zoning, with each air handler offering independent control.
