If you are thinking about updating your home’s cooling and heating system, you may have some questions about the differences between a traditional duct system and a horizontal-ducted unit. Either type of system has advantages, and the expert technicians at Controlled Temperatures Inc. in Stamford, CT, can help you decide which unit is right for you.
Here are some of the differences between a traditional system and a horizontal-ducted system to consider:
- Ductwork: Horizontal-ducted indoor units combine extended pipe runs and fans to circulate a large volume of air, making them a good choice for spaces where there isn’t much room for ductwork. Traditional units rely on more networks of tubes and require more space.
- Visibility: Because a horizontal-ducted air conditioning system uses less ductwork, it can be installed above the ceiling or below the floor, keeping it out of sight while cooling your home. Traditional duct systems need extra space to accommodate more ductwork, so the units are usually larger and more visible.
- Automatic Mode Changes: A Mitsubishi Electric® horizontal-ducted unit will automatically switch between cooling and heating system modes. Its special technology will keep your home temperature consistent.
- Noise Level: A Mitsubishi Electric horizontal-ducted unit is so quiet, the only way you will know it’s running is because the temperature in your home is consistently comfortable. Traditional systems typically produce more sound, especially when the air conditioner is running during warm months.
