Having two systems in your home to handle the heating and cooling is common practice in Toronto and the GTA. Whether it’s a furnace and central air conditioner or ductless air conditioning with a boiler, there are all kinds of ways to mix and match complex HVAC systems to suit your needs. There are even combi boilers that manage your home’s hot water and heating. The trick is finding the right balance based on your home’s design and your needs.
Is Your Home Designed To Pair Ductless Air Conditioning With A Boiler?
Knowing what to look for in terms of compatibility is important. Luckily, ductless air conditioners are known for their versatility in where they can be installed. Ask yourself:
- Where are the warmest spots in my home?
- Do I have more than one level in my home?
- What am I currently using to cool my home?
These questions help to better determine where a ductless unit would be best placed. If you have an upstairs with a stuffy back bedroom as well as a warm living room on the main floor, you might need more than one interior unit to manage those hot summer days. You see, ductless air conditioning is best used for spot heating and cooling, which means it’s a concentrated way of controlling the temperature in a given area. If your home has multiple hot zones that aren’t close together, it might make sense to add another interior unit to help address the issue.
If you have an air conditioner in place, ductless can still be an option. It’s just important to know what you currently have in place before potentially doubling up in the wrong area of your home. Ductless can either be a support system to what you have in place or be strategically installed as your main source of air conditioning. It’s always best to consult with a pro. They should be able to take the time to assess your home and go over which options make sense based on these factors.
