A ductless heating system is not combustion based, meaning that it doesn't burn any sort of fuel to create heat. In fact, a ductless heater is actually quite similar to an air conditioner in construction. There are at least two units, one inside and one outside, which work together to move heat from outside the house inside. They do this by evaporating refrigerant to absorb heat, then condensing it inside to release it into the home. Up to 4 indoor units can be connected to a single outdoor unit, with each inside unit installed in a separate room. Each individual inside unit has its own thermostat, which allows it to operate independently from the rest of the system.
There are a number of benefits to ductless heating. First, ductless heating systems don't have to deal with duct leaks. This may not seem like much of a benefit, but duct leaks account for output losses of up to 30% in forced air systems. Not having to deal with duct leaks automatically makes ductless heaters more energy efficient than traditional heating systems. As previously mentioned, ductless heating systems don't burn fuel to create heat. This also contributes to their energy efficiency, especially when compared to things like natural gas furnaces.
Aside from energy efficiency, ductless heating systems also offer a level of convenience that centralized heating systems can't provide. Relying on multiple thermostats allows the system to modulate its output for each room. That means that you and the other members of your household can determine which temperature is most comfortable in each room without affecting the rest of the house.
Ductless heating is ideal for people who want a bit more control over their indoor climates. If you want to install a ductless heating system in your home, give us a call.
