Horizontal-Ducted Units vs. Traditional Air Conditioning Systems

Whether you’re building a new property or making some upgrades, it’s a good idea to think about what air conditioning system will be the most energy-efficient and cost-effective option for your home. One recent trend in the HVAC industry is horizontal-ducted indoor units. Below is a quick guide to the differences between the new Mitsubishi Electric® options and traditional models.

How to Choose Between Units

1. Ductwork

If you don’t have many options for ductwork, horizontal-ducted indoor units are a great option. Their construction requires less tubing, making it easier to install in places where they may be limited access or space for installation. Unlike traditional systems, they can be hidden either above the ceiling or below the floor to create more space in your home and offer a sleek, modern aesthetic.

2. Noise

Noisy air conditioning systems can be cumbersome and frustrating, especially when you’re trying to sleep during the summer. Although the noise a traditional HVAC produces depends on the duct size and how fast it pushes air through the system, the average one creates around 60dB of sound. However, a typical horizontal-ducted indoor unit only makes 28dB of sound.

3. Energy Efficiency

Traditional HVAC systems may use more energy than they should to pump air through your home. This can both increase your utility bills and decrease the longevity of your unit. Advancements in technology make horizontal-ducted indoor options more energy efficient, saving you money and producing a larger return on your investment because your air conditioning system will last longer.
