Yes, existing homes that don’t have ductwork can still have air conditioning added, without the expense of installing ductwork. There are also ductless systems that can provide both heating and cooling from the same unit. Ductless systems are a great solution for adding HVAC to a home addition, workshop or tiny home, any room or building that doesn’t have ductwork already installed. Some of the benefits of ductless cooling and heating systems are:
Ductless HVAC systems are ideal for home areas that were built without ductwork. These could be homes with baseboard electrical or hot water heat, home additions or new construction on energy-efficient homes.
Ductless heating and cooling systems disperse the cooled or heated air through individual wall-mounted or ceiling-mounted units, rather than lengthy ductwork all tied to a central unit. The indoor units are connected to a compressor or condenser located outside of the building. The indoor and outdoor units are connected through a conduit that transfers power and cooled or heated air to the indoor unit. Location of the air handling units in the space is critical for efficient operation and should always be determined by an HVAC professional trained in the installation of ductless HVAC systems.
