Ductless systems are ideal for replacing or supplementing inefficient electric baseboards, wall or ceiling units, woodstoves, electric furnace and other space heaters such as those using propane or kerosene. A cost-effective arrangement for a small house might involve a ductless system serving the main living area, while existing electric baseboards in bedrooms and bathrooms supplement heat when needed.
A ductless system is a great option when a room is added onto a house or when an attic is converted to living space. Rather than extending the home’s existing ductwork or pipes, or adding electric resistance heaters, a ductless system can provide efficient heating and cooling at a lower operational cost.
New home designs can be adapted to take advantage of a ductless system’s many benefits. Two or more systems can be installed strategically throughout the house to simplify an installation and minimize refrigerant line length.
