Fall is here, and within the next couple of weeks you’re going to need a good home heating system to stay comfortable. If you’re in the market for a new heating system, you’ve doubtless already discovered the sheer number of different types of heating systems available. Each of those systems has its own advantages to offer. What’s important is that you evaluate how they can benefit your personal situation. Let’s take a look at ductless mini splits, and how they can help you.
Ductless Mini Splits
A ductless system is a heat pump that doesn’t use ducts. Instead, an air handler is installed in each room of the house that requires conditioning. Each of these air handlers has its own thermostat, allowing it to operate independently from the rest of the system. Up to four of these indoor air handlers can be connected to a single outside unit. During operation, the system evaporates and condenses refrigerant to move heat from one place to another, just like any other heat pump. Also like a heat pump, a ductless mini split can offer both heating and cooling functions.
Advantages of Ductless Systems
First and foremost, the ability to offer both heating and cooling services makes ductless systems invaluable for people looking to save energy. Instead of having two separate systems taking up space and power, you can just use your ductless system throughout the year. Ductless systems are also much more energy efficient than the standard combustion heating system, because they don’t have to burn fuel to generate heat. These are just a few of the many advantages that a ductless system can offer you if you install one this fall.
