Is a Ductless Heat Pump Right for Your Home?
Unlike ductless air conditioners, ductless heat pumps have the ability to heat and cool your home. So, if you’re looking for a year-round heating and cooling solution for your home, but you don’t have pre-existing ductwork, a ductless heat pump installation could be exactly what you need for your Toronto home. Ductless heat pumps can be used as a primary or supplemental heating and cooling source, which means that most homes in Toronto would benefit from their installation.
Benefits of Ductless Heating
Whether you’re using your ductless heat pump as your primary or secondary source of heating and cooling, you will experience a noticeable difference in your overall home comfort. Having indoor units placed around your home allows you to heat and cool your home evenly. It also gives you the option to use zoned heating and cooling to precisely adjust the temperatures in different rooms around your home.
One of the main reasons ductless heating is becoming increasingly popular across the Greater Toronto Area is because the systems are extremely efficient. Every ductless heat pump is Energy Star rated, which means that right out of the box, they are one of the most efficient HVAC options on the market, and features like zoned heating and cooling allow you to stretch those savings even further.
For many homeowners who don’t have pre-existing ductwork in their Toronto homes, ductless heat pumps are a logical choice because of their easy installation. Your HVAC technician will mount the indoor units in the respective rooms around your home, but in terms of structural renovations, all they’ll need to do is drill a hole that is a couple of inches wide in your wall to connect the outdoor unit to the indoor units.
What Are the Installation Options?
Another benefit of ductless systems is that installation is a breeze. The outdoor units are somewhat standard in terms of their style and makeup, but there are four options to choose from for your indoor ductless mini split unit installation in Toronto:
- Ductless Wall Mounted
- Ductless Ceiling Cassette
- Ductless Floor Mounted
- Ductless Ceiling Concealed

Frequently Asked Questions About Ductless Heating
What is a Ductless Heating System?
A ductless heating system or a ductless heat pump works by displacing heat where you need it the most. It works to warm your home by pulling heat and humidity from the outside air and dispersing it inside your home. A ductless heat pump works outside the confines of your home’s ductwork and has an air register installed in each room, giving you the ability to individually climatize each room of your home.
What’s the Difference Between a Furnace and a Ductless Heat Pump?
While a furnace and a ductless heat pump are both good options for keeping a home comfortable during the winter, the main difference is that a furnace works in partnership with the ductwork in your home, while a ductless heat pump works independently from your ductwork, and also does the job of both your furnace and air conditioner.
What Size Ductless Heat Pump Do I Need for My Home?
Ductless systems can be placed strategically in different rooms or areas of the house for maximum efficiency and impact. On average, one ductless heat pump system can serve up to 600 square feet, but this also depends on your home’s natural climate and where you decide to place your ducts. Talk to the experts at Spring Home today to help figure out what size unit you need, as well as how many air handlers would be ideal in your home.
What Kind of Maintenance Does Ductless Heating Need?
Ductless heat pumps are extremely durable and reliable, however, they do need a little bit of maintenance to keep running smoothly. This includes changing or cleaning the air filter every 30-90 days as it collects dust, calling for repair immediately when necessary, and scheduling annual preventative maintenance with licensed HVAC technicians.
Baseboard Heating vs. Ductless Heating
Both heating methods can be used as a primary or supplemental heat source, but beyond that, they have their own specific pros and cons.
usually installed underneath windows to combat the cold air that enters from the windows before it spreads throughout the rest of your home. They need to be fitted to your walls properly to avoid a loss of heat, and because they run across large portions of your walls, they can make placing furniture difficult. Baseboard heaters can effectively heat your home when properly installed, but it should be noted that they act slowly and tend to make the air in your home extremely dry.
One of the main reasons homeowners choose ductless systems over baseboard heaters is because they can also act as air conditioners. Ductless systems run off of electricity and use heat pumps to move and exchange heat rather than produce it, which makes them extremely energy-efficient and cost-effective to run. Another nice thing about ductless systems is that although they have to be placed on the wall like baseboard heaters, they are placed close to the ceiling so they won’t disrupt your floor-plan or impede where you place your furniture. A ductless heating system will cost more upfront than baseboard heaters, but because they’re more efficient, they’ll save you money in the long run.
