Are you considering having a new heating system installed before this winter begins? Or perhaps you’re remodeling your home and are unsure if your current system can adequately heat the home? A ductless system is certainly worth your consideration. Keep reading to learn how these system operate and how one can best benefit you.
Ductless Mini-Split Operation
Ductless mini-split systems are a type of heat pump that operate through small air handlers mounted in the rooms in which you want conditioned. Air handlers blow conditioned air directly into your living space, and connect out the back of your wall through very small holes, to an outside unit.
Ductless systems are available in both single-zone and multi-zone models. A single zone system is a great way to provide heating and cooling to an add-on room, or anywhere in your home that’s not hooked up to the ductwork of your existing system. A multi-zone system on the other hand, is great for whole-home comfort, and uses 2-8 air handlers and 1-2 outdoor units.
The Benefits of a Ductless System
Reduced Energy Use: Air handlers use smaller motors and mechanical parts than standard heat pumps or traditional central HVAC system, and therefore consume less power.
Versatility: Ductless systems are used for both heating and cooling. This means that rather than purchasing a separate furnace and central air conditioning unit, you have everything you need in one single system.
Zoned Heating: Each air handler operates separately, so that you only heat—or cool—the rooms that need it.
Improved Air Quality: Without the presence of air ducts, you don’t have to worry about ductwork becoming clogged with dust and dirt, improving your air quality. This is very advantageous if anyone in your household suffers from allergies or asthma.
