Where they are used
Homes with Electric Heat
Ductless systems are ideal for replacing or supplementing inefficient electric baseboard, wall or ceiling units, woodstoves and other space heaters such as propane or kerosene. A cost effective electric heat conversion in a small house might consist of a ductless system serving the main living area, while leaving existing electric baseboards in bedrooms and bathrooms for supplementary heat when needed.
Remodels & Room Additions
A ductless system can also be a great solution when a room is added onto a house or 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 the many benefits of a ductless heating and cooling system. One or more systems might be installed in various “zones” of the house to simplify installation and minimize refrigerant line length.
