Title: Feasibility Study: Ductless Hydronic Distribution Systems with Fan Coil Delivery

Feasibility Study: Ductless Hydronic Distribution Systems with Fan Coil Delivery The primary objectives of this study are to estimate potential energy savings relative to conventional ducted air distribution, and to identify equipment requirements, costs, and barriers with a focus on ductless hydronic delivery systems that utilize water-to-air terminal units in each zone. Results indicate that annual heating and cooling energy use can be reduced by up to 27% assuming replacement of the conventional 13 SEER heat pump and coil with a similarly rated air-to-water heat pump.
