Choosing between a ducted and high wall heat pump for your home can be a challenge.
Both options have their benefits and potential drawbacks, depending on your specific needs and the layout of your home. FAS Energy is here to help clarify the differences, making your decision a little easier.
Ducted Heat Pumps:
Ducted heat pumps circulate warm or cool air through a series of ducts to multiple rooms simultaneously. They are typically installed in the ceiling or under the floor, becoming an integral part of your home’s structure.
- Whole Home Comfort: Ducted systems can heat or cool your entire home, offering a uniform temperature across multiple rooms.
- Aesthetics: Ducted systems are less visible compared to high wall units, fitting seamlessly into your home’s decor.
- Noise: These systems are usually quieter as the main unit is installed away from living spaces.
High Wall Heat Pumps:
High wall heat pumps are mounted on a wall and typically heat or cool a single room or open-plan area.
- Flexibility: These systems can be installed in almost any room, providing flexibility in where you want heating or cooling.
- Cost: High wall units are generally less expensive to install than ducted systems, making them a cost-effective option for single-room solutions.
- Efficiency: They can be very energy-efficient, especially when heating or cooling smaller areas.
Choosing between these two options depends on your home’s size, layout, and your heating and cooling needs. Ducted systems may be ideal for larger homes, where whole-house heating and cooling is needed. In contrast, high wall units could be the perfect fit for smaller homes or flats, or when wanting to heat or cool a specific room.
