Having a home in Toronto and the GTA is a big achievement. But what do you do when certain rooms always seem to be lacking heat in the winter and are just plain uncomfortable in the summer? Assuming your insulation isn’t an issue, maybe it’s time to consider the benefits of adding spot heating and cooling to those troublesome areas.
What Is Spot Heating And Cooling?
Ductless air conditioners and heat pumps are best known for being able to provide the right amount of warm or cool air to a given area of a home. They are 2 names for the same system and can be set to do both heating or cooling. Their design allows them to pull in air from the outdoors, heat or cool it, and then distribute that air to the area of the home where the interior unit is located.
Is Spot Heating And Cooling The Same As A Window Air Conditioner?
In theory, yes. But ductless units are much more advanced in terms of their design, efficiency, and even how much quieter they are. Unlike window models that are becoming obsolete and have always been a hazard, ductless air conditioners are mounted to a designated area of your home. Usually, they are placed in commonly used areas to help control the temperature of a specific zone in your home – rather than just the immediate space surrounding the unit. They have also been highly praised for their silence. Anyone who’s had a window air conditioner knows how loud they can be, but ductless are so quiet they can be installed in a bedroom without disturbing your sleep at all.
Can I Use Spot Heating And Cooling With My Current HVAC?
Absolutely. These smaller units are often a great way to help tackle hot and cold zones in your home to give your central HVAC a break. Having one in a section of your home could help you boost the temperature in that area specifically, so you don’t need to crank your A/C in the summer or furnace in the winter.
