Should I Install a Ducted or Ductless Heat Pump?


Is it finally time that you decided you need a new heating and cooling system at home? You might be surprised at how many options are available in the market. Unless you are an experienced professional, you might not know what the differences are.

Ducted and ductless heat pumps are two of the most popular HVAC systems homeowners are installing in their homes in Glendale, AZ. We often get a lot of questions from our customers about which one is better for their homes. While many people schedule our services for ductless heating in Glendale, AZ, we try to be impartial towards our preferences.

The ideal choice depends on your situation. We will look at some of the reasons you could choose each of the systems. It can help you decide which way you might want to go.

Reasons to Choose a Ducted Heat Pump

Your home already has ducts installed

If your home already has ducts from a previous HVAC system, a ducted heat pump can easily integrate into the system. You will not need to make major renovations to add or remove the ductwork and get a new system working using the old ducts.

Better air circulation

A ducted heat pump can provide powerful air circulation around the house. Ductless mini-splits can sometimes leave the air feeling stagnant in a particular area of the house.

You don’t want air handlers on the walls

Many people want the convenience of an excellent cooling system without having bulky air handlers taking up space. If you don’t like how air handlers look in your home, it can be a good reason to stick to a ducted heat pump.

Reasons to Choose a Ductless Heat Pump

You are planning to remodel your home and remove ducts

If you plan to remodel your home and create more space by removing the ductwork, a ductless mini-split can be an excellent investment. It gives you more freedom to redesign the house.

You have allergy concerns

Ducted systems can offer you better air circulation throughout the house, but they can also circulate any pollutants in the air as well. Ductless mini-splits can significantly reduce dust and other air pollutants that would otherwise circulate throughout the house.

You want zoned cooling and heating

Each air handler in a ductless system can manage the temperature of a particular part of your house. It can operate separately from the other air handlers, giving you zoned climate control in your house. This can provide you significant savings if you only turn on the air handlers in the area of the house you are in.

Call a Professional

If you have any more questions about which system might work better for your home or you want to call in a professional to install the new system you have decided on, you can always get in touch with us. We can offer you the consulting and installation services that you need.
