Ductless Air Conditioners

More control, more efficiency, no ducts and less noise…it’s easy to see why ductless systems are quickly gaining popularity in Canada.

What is a ductless air conditioner?

Ductless air conditioners are exactly that – air conditioners that don’t need ductwork to operate but rather are wall-mounted, giving homeowners the ability to customize the airflow in their home. A ductless system can be especially cost-efficient if your home doesn’t have existing ductwork or needs new ductwork.

This system is split into two units: the inside, wall-mounted unit (also known as a “head”) and the outside condensing unit. Smart inverter technology means that ductless air conditioners can easily maintain desired room temperatures. This is especially beneficial for those looking to control the temperature of a specific room in their home, like the top floor or a home office.

A ductless air conditioner is an ideal solution for:

  • Renovations, remodelling and new construction
  • Sunrooms, basements, attics, garages, hot or cold rooms, and more
  • Rooms where floor space comes at a premium or is not available for other application
  • Ceiling void or attic does not allow for a viable duct run option
  • Cooling only models are an excellent value for space not requiring heating

Compact size and ease of installation make ductless systems the popular choice for new construction and renovation projects.

Did you know?

In the average house, you’re losing 25% or more of your energy to ductwork. By removing ducts, you improve the efficiency of your system.

Heat Pumps

A better understanding of how people inhabit their living spaces has led to products designed to create indoor environments that use energy resources more effectively. Contrary to its name, a heat pump delivers both heating and cooling with or without the use of ductwork.

What is a heat pump and how does it work?

A heat pump is an electrical device that extracts heat from one place and transfers it to another. The heat pump is not a new technology – it has been used in Canada and around the world for decades. Refrigerators and air conditioners are both common examples of this technology.

The heat pump cycle is fully reversible, and heat pumps can provide year-round climate control for your home – heating in winter and cooling and dehumidifying in summer.

Since the ground and air outside always contain some heat, a heat pump can supply heat to a house even on cold winter days.

Unlike forced air furnaces that require gas to heat the air, a heat pump only requires a little electricity to run. They are an ideal option for those wanting an environmentally friendly option, as a large portion of the energy used to heat or cool your home comes from the outside air, a free and infinitely renewable resource.

What are the benefits of a heat pump?

There are a wide range of benefits to installing a heat pump instead of a traditional furnace/air conditioner combo.

*Your air conditioner’s energy efficiency, rated in Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ration (SEER) measures how efficiently the unit cools your home. The higher the SEER rating, the more efficiently your unit will perform, resulting in lower electricity bills. Potential energy savings may vary depending on your personal lifestyle, system settings and usage, equipment maintenance, local climate, actual construction and installation.
