How Add-On Cooling works

How Does Add-On Cooling works?

An Add-On Cooling system works by being added onto a Gas Ducted Heating System. Add On Cooling installation involves placing a condensing unit outdoors, which is then connected to the gas ducted heating unit through a coil. This allows cool air to flow through the same ducts used by the ducted heating system. You can change between cool or warm air at the push of a button.

Whether you’ll need 1 or 2 controllers for Ducted Heating with Add-On Cooling will depend on the specific system you choose to install.
