Ductless Air: The Best Solution For Old Toronto Homes

You may or may not have heard this before, but ductless air is the best and most affordable cooling solution for old Toronto homes. Now, if your home has been renovated and has a furnace with existing ductwork then a central air conditioner might make more sense for you. But, if you have a boiler with radiators in every room making the switch to ductwork isn’t cheap.

That’s where ductless air comes into the equation. A ductless air conditioning unit doesn’t need ductwork to operate, which you may have guessed from the name itself. That means that installation is much cheaper and much easier.

A ductless unit itself is also much cheaper than a central air conditioner, and much cheaper to maintain and repair overall.

Ductless Air For The Win

We’ve been working in Toronto and the GTA for over 30 years, installing ductless air conditioning units, heat pumps, central air conditioning units, furnaces, boilers and lots of other HVAC products and accessories. We’ve seen it all and from experience, ductless units are an excellent solution to any Toronto home, even those that already have ductwork.

Ductless air can supplement any central air conditioning system if there are room in your home that don’t get the cooling you need them to. Ductless air conditioning units also don’t require extensive construction, so you won’t be bogged down by costs or ripping out piping and radiators, putting up new drywall, patching the seams, sanding, applying primer, applying paint, etc.

Construction isn’t fun to live through, which is just another reason why installing a ductless air conditioner is a great idea.

Case Study: “We Needed A Ductless Air Conditioner For Our Asthma”

Here’s why Steve and Cheryl bought a ductless air conditioner.

Steve and Cheryl had lived in their Toronto home for past 35 years. They’ve paid off their mortgage long ago and seen housing prices rise around them. They’ve experienced many ups and downs in their neighbourhood and in Toronto as a whole, but never had the urge to move.

Their home was always heated by a boiler and radiator system, and they never really used an air conditioner much, although they always had a window unit in their bedroom for really hot summer days. As Steve and Cheryl got older they, like many people, ran into a few different medical issues. One of these issues was asthma, which for a few years they had no issues with treating. However, as they got older the humidity that came with hot summer days slowly became too much for them and they soon realized that they needed a way to rid their home of the heat and humidity in order to ease their breathing.

It Was Time For A Ductless Air Conditioner

Being long retired they hadn’t really budgeted for the cost of installing ductwork in their old home to accommodate a central air conditioner. They also knew they needed something much better than a window air conditioner.

Steve and Cheryl called us up one day to see what the best solution for their needs was. It was apparent to us right away that they needed a ductless air conditioner. A ductless air conditioner was a much more efficient option than their window unit and it was capable of removing the humidity as well as the heat from their home.

Overall, a ductless air conditioner was within their budget and was a great solution to help with their asthma during the hottest days of summer. In speaking with them, they also realized that they liked the fact that the ductless unit circulated and filtered the air, so they opted for a heat pump that would work in both the summer and winter months.

After providing a free quote and setting them up with a payment plan to suit their budget, we installed a new heat pump that would keep the air in their home clean and crisp all year round.

It’s stories like these that really make us proud to work in Toronto and help our neighbours and customers improve their lifestyle.

Finding The Right Ductless Unit For Your Home

So, it’s time to replace your old ductless unit with a shiny new one. Or, maybe you’re tired of sweating it out all summer without air conditioning. Or, you’ve had enough with high energy bills caused by your window air conditioner. Regardless of your reasons, it’s time to get a new ductless unit for your home, but where do you start?

A Ductless Unit For All Seasons

It might seem like there are endless options when it comes to ductless air conditioners, so where should you start? Prior to selecting any brands or even discussing the size and output of units, we always ask if our customers want to use it for heating and cooling or just cooling. This will help us narrow down the types of units available for your specific situation.

Heat pumps are a type of ductless unit that can also supplement your main heating system in cooler months and in the winter time. For example, if your home is heated by radiators and a boiler you likely don’t get very much air circulation, but a heat pump can fix that. It can provide heat to assist your boiler, as well as circulate the air in your home.

If you’re just interested in cooling your home, the a straight ductless air conditioner might be the best solution. They’re more affordable than heat pumps because they don’t include the technology necessary to provide heating.

Install A New Ductless Air Conditioner This Spring

That’s right we’re talking about Spring because we just can’t wait any longer. The snow is no longer staying on the ground and we know that makes everyone anxious to start cleaning up the yard, getting the patio furniture ready and booking the first BBQ of the season. It also means the time has come to install a new ductless air conditioner.

Toronto homes are smaller than those in the suburbs, but they’re filled with charm in neighbourhoods that we all love to live in and visit.

Ductless air conditioners are very efficient ways to cool your home and their upfront cost won’t break the bank. Over time, the amount of money you’ll save running a ductless air conditioner versus a window unit is remarkable.
