Heat Ducts: Floor vs Ceiling Systems

heat ductsIn the interior of a home, the location of a heating unit can impact a home’s livability. Are you a Florida local looking for an effective heat duct system that will improve your quality of life should inclement weather arise? Would floor or ceiling heat ducts work better for your space?

Check out these quick duct type comparisons to determine the heat ducts system for your needs.

Ceiling Heat Ducts

Ceiling heat duct systems make sense in homes that:

  • have no basement
  • use ceiling fans
  • are multi or single level
  • may or may not have attics

Utilizing a ceiling heat duct system in homes with these features can help produce optimal results, especially in terms of optimal airflow. Higher duct system placement is effective in terms of collecting warm/cold air and evenly distributing it throughout the home.

Floor Heat Ducts

Floor heat duct systems put to good use the “heat rises” adage. They use floor level heat to warm the home from the bottom to top. Floor heat duct systems work well in homes that:

  • have a furnace in the basement
  • contain ducts in an underground crawlspace
  • benefit from quick-moving heat
  • experience cooler temperatures

These systems offer an effective distribution of warm air to colder, more unreachable areas. If you live in a climate that experiences cold or wet conditions frequently, a burst of warm air delivered quickly can keep you comfortable during the winter months.
