Heating season is just about here, and it’s time to start thinking about your plans for keeping your home warm throughout the fall and winter. While central heating is always an option, you should consider the advantages of a ductless heating system. Let’s take a look at what a ductless heating system is, and the advantages that it can offer you.
What Is Ductless Heating?
A ductless heating system doesn’t rely on ducts to distribute warm air throughout the house. Instead, it uses a series of air handlers installed in each room throughout the house. Each air handler has its own thermostat attached to it. The system is far more similar to an air conditioner than a traditional heater. Instead of burning fuel to create heat, the system evaporates refrigerant to siphon thermal energy from outside and direct it inside.
The Benefits of Ductless Heating
So why install a ductless heating system instead of a traditional heater? Well, for one thing, a ductless heating system is far more efficient than a traditional heating system. This is because it doesn’t have to burn fuel to generate heat. For another, the ability to alter output between rooms makes ductless heating far more versatile than other heating systems. Finally, not relying on ductwork means that the ductless heating system saves quite a bit more energy than those that use ducts. Duct leaks account for energy losses up to 30% in heating systems. With ductless heating, you never have to worry about such things. These are just a few of the benefits of installing a ductless heating system in your home.
