As we move further into heating season, some people are going to be looking for a new home heating system. There are a great many different heating system types to choose from, each with their own advantages. Before you settle on one, make sure you find the system that fits your individual heating needs. Let’s take a look at ductless mini splits, and the advantages they can offer you this heating season.
Ductless mini splits are systems that, as you have probably guessed, don’t use ducts. An air handler is installed in each room of the house that needs heating, with up to four air handlers connected to a single outdoor unit. During heating mode, the outdoor unit evaporates refrigerant to absorb thermal energy from the air outside. The collected heat is then sent inside to the air handlers, where it is vented into the home. Each air handler has its own thermostat, which allows it to operate separately from the rest of the system.
Advantages of Ductless Systems
Like all heat pumps, ductless systems are capable of reversing the direction that refrigerant flows through their systems. This allows them to offer both heating and air conditioning functions. By using a ductless mini split, you can save money and space that would otherwise need to be dedicated to a different system.
Ductless systems are also much more energy efficient than the standard heating system, because they don’t need to burn any kind of fuel to generate heat. If you want to make your home more energy efficient this heating season, without sacrificing comfort, this is the way to do it.
