Many homeowners in our area know that ductless heating systems exist, but they don’t actually know about the general perks or advantages that come with these systems. The name implies that they’re ductless, which is a huge bonus, but for their higher price tag there needs to be more of a selling point.

The 3 Main Advantages to Ductless Heating
We’re going to separate this blog post into three sections. Each one will give you a broad idea of a unique advantage to owning a ductless heating system. If any of these (or perhaps all of them) sound like great investments for you and your family, then don’t hesitate to call our team and get started. We’ll be honest with you and tell you if a ductless HVAC system could give your home the boon it’s looking for.
Versatility and Convenience
First, the most obvious reason for homeowners to invest in a ductless comfort system is that they’re versatile and easy to use.
They’re heat pumps which means that they both heat and cool your home throughout the entire year. This is great news for homeowners in our specific climate!
Also, since they function with individual air handlers spread out throughout your home, when one system breaks down, the others will continue to work and provide comfort to your home while you get the other repaired. Basically, the air handlers can heat and cool specific areas, regardless of whether or not another one is having difficulty.
Ductless mini split systems are incredibly energy efficient. Take a look at the SEER ratings and compare them to your standard central air conditioner, or match up the HSPF ratings with other centralized heat pump systems. You’ll notice the difference.
Ductless mini split heating systems can reach SEER ratings of up to 30 which means they’re some of the most energy-efficient comfort models on the market. If you’re in the mindset of reducing your carbon footprint and lowering your energy bills, then this system is absolutely perfect.
They’re Extremely Effective
There’s a misconception going around that ductless heat pump systems just aren’t as effective as gas furnaces or central air conditioners are in their respective fields. That couldn’t be further from the truth.
Ductless mini split systems do a great job at keeping homes warm during the coldest months of the year, and they can also keep things cool when temperatures are scorching hot. We wouldn’t install them in so many homes if they couldn’t keep customers happy.
