Summer Has Arrived

Installing a Ductless System

Weather experts have predicted that Ontario’s 2022 summer will be “very warm and humid … across much of the province.”
Further, they are forecasting that “a few heat waves are likely to occur, especially across southern and eastern parts of the province, including London, Toronto and Ottawa, with periods of cooler weather providing relief from the heat at times. Due to the heat and humidity and several cold fronts tracking across the region, we expect stormy weather at times.”
If you typically spend any amount of time at home during the hottest months of the year in Ontario, you know how uncomfortable a changeable environment can make you and your family feel.

What is the Solution?

Proper HVAC (heating, ventilation and cooling) of living spaces, especially in older homes, poses a significant challenge. Many homes that were built years ago did not include the installation of duct work used to regulate the temperature of the air inside. If an addition was added at any time, this could also be the case.
The solution has often been the use of power-hungry window unit air conditioners to cool the home. While the units do a serviceable job, they do tend to feature noisy operation, sometimes tricky installation methods and an ever-increasing energy bill.

There is a Better Option

Ductless, also known as mini-split, air conditioners succeed in creating a comfortable environment where traditional units are known to fail. You can install ductless systems in places where there is no ductwork.
Mini-splits are very efficient because they work through the use of zones. Ducted systems are not zonal, so they tend to suffer quite some energy loss—typically about 20%–25%. While this isn’t a big problem in homes where the air conditioning system has been set up for years, you might want to consider whether installing ductwork just to connect to less efficient equipment makes sense.

Heat Pumps

Condition the Air for Comfort

In addition to efficiency, the biggest advantage of mini-split systems is ease of installation. There are a number of other advantages too, including:

  • Integrated zoning allows for full control of the temperature in each room.
  • Inverter compressors adjust the system, instead of shutting it down.
  • Mini-split systems are energy-friendly. With other systems, 20% to 30% of energy loss is attributable to leaky ductwork.
  • These units can be Inconspicuous in a room, and offer quiet operation.
  • Mini-splits can be used in conjunction with heat pumps to heat a room as well as cool it.

When Ductless is the Best Option

Ductless mini-split air conditioners are a good choice if you want an efficient air conditioning system, but have no ducts in your house.
Mini-splits, like central systems, consist of two primary components: an external compressor/condenser and an indoor air-handling unit. The outside and indoor units are connected by a conduit that houses the power wire, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing, and condensate drain.
The primary benefits of mini-splits are their compact size and adaptability for cooling different rooms. Multiple versions can link up to four indoor air handling units (for four zones or rooms) to a single outdoor unit. The number depends on how much cooling the building or each zone requires. This can be altered by the building’s level of insulation and airtightness. Each zone will have its own thermostat, allowing you to save energy and money by conditioning only those spaces that are occupied.

    I had the most fabulous experience with Cozy Comfort Plus! Brian was very responsive for my first outreach all the way through to the completion of my beautiful fireplace! I live in a condo and as such, things are not straightforward when it comes to having work completed. There were a few extra hoops to jump through but Brian and his team were very diligent in ensuring that all the fittings were correct. I was so happy with my experience that I had them replace my furnace and add a smart home thermometer as well! I would highly recommend Brian and his team for their knowledge, skill and excellent customer service!

    Raymond and Ali were professional, and a pleasure to meet. They arrived on time, did the work (hot water heater removal and installation) efficiently and expertly, and did a great job of cleaning up afterward. This has been my consistent experience dealing with Cozy Comfort Plus over the years. Brian, Liz, Jay... all the team members I've interfaced with are top-notch. Highly recommended!

    Highly recommended. Brian at Cozy Comfort Plus supplied and installed 6 ductless heads on two compressors. The price was very competitive. The installation crew lead by Hamid did a perfect job. They explained the best locations for the equipment and answered all my questions. The work was completed a very short time after signing the contract. The team cleaned up the job site very carefully every night and were very careful indoorA.
