A better way to keep cool
If you’ve considered upgrading your existing system or adding air conditioning to your home, you’ve probably realized there’s a large gap in the available options for home cooling. At one end of the spectrum are the small, relatively inexpensive window air conditioners that seem to have moved along noisily with few advances in technology since they entered the mainstream market in the 1940s. At the other end are large, quiet (as long as you’re inside) central systems designed to hook into existing central ventilation ducts.
What do you do if you want something in between? What’s available for houses that have no ducting? Isn’t there
The ductless air conditioner or “mini-split” as its also called, is a perfect solution that’s sized to fill the gap between central systems and window are conditioners, ductless system have another advantage too. They save money through lower electricity consumption. Operating without all that sheet metal has its advantages.
If you live in an older Toronto home without ductwork then Ductless air conditioner is the best option to keep your home warm in the cold winter. For duct-free houses heated with electric baseboard heaters or radiant in-floor heating, mini-splits offer cooling action that simply can’t be achieved with central air. Ductless systems also eliminate the risk of criminal intrusion into the home that window air conditioners create. Some systems (Heat Pumps) are even designed to operate in reverse, supplying heat during cool weather. For homes without ducts, this can mean getting rid of those baseboard heaters, resulting in year-round energy savings.

HIGH VELOCITY SYSTEMS
High-Velocity Heating / Air Conditioning Systems
High velocity split-system heating and air conditioning has the unique feature of small diameter ductwork. This makes the system ideal for adding air conditioning (and heating) to older multi-story homes where the larger diameter ductwork of standard central air conditioning is often prohibitive due to space restrictions between the walls.
High velocity systems consist of a special type of indoor equipment called an air handler, outdoor equipment (any standard either air conditioner condenser or heat pump), a line set of pipes to connect the indoor and outdoor equipment together, special narrow diameter ductwork which connects to the indoor equipment to transfer the heated and cooled air throughout the home, and a standard thermostat to control the system.
High-velocity systems may also ensure a drier, more comfortable environment than that provided by conventional air conditioning due to an air circulation method called aspiration. By discharging cold air at a high-velocity from strategic locations (such is in a corner or next to a wall), high-velocity systems create an intermingling of air in the room to give a complete and thorough circulation.
