The Differences Between Horizontal-Ducted Units & Traditional Cooling & Heating Systems, New Rochelle, New York

If you’re working on a new-build construction project, creating the home or office from the ground up allows for more flexibility in the type of cooling and heating system you install. According to the Mitsubishi Electric Diamond Contractors™ at Yost & Campbell Heating Cooling Generators in Mount Vernon, NY, when deciding between horizontal-ducted indoor units and traditional duct systems, it’s important to compare the two to determine which is best for your space.

How Are Horizontal-Ducted Indoor Units & Traditional Duct Cooling & Heating Systems Different?

1. Amount of Ductwork

You will have to run a lot of bulky tubing through the property with a traditional duct system. If the space has low ceilings, the addition of ducts could make the rooms appear confined. Horizontal-ducted indoor units use fewer materials by comparison, utilizing low-profile, short-run ducts to transfer hot or cold air to vents.  

2. Aesthetic Appeal

Horizontal-ducted indoor units are designed for discreet operation. So the property’s appearance won’t be comprised, the equipment is installed above the ceiling or below the floorboards. 

3. Level of Noise During Operation

Depending on the size of the tubing and how forcefully the air travels, operating a traditional duct heating or air conditioning system could be noisy. At a high air velocity, the equipment may produce a loud rattling sound as it transfers air through the unit. Horizontal-ducted indoor units are often quieter.
