If you want to heat your home without ductwork, there is always radiant heating to consider. This is far from your only option, though. Many homeowners appreciate the comfort that forced air heating allows for, and the swiftness with which that comfort is generated. If you want to enjoy that kind of comfort but don’t want to use ductwork in order to do so, then you are well-advised to consider the use of ductless mini splits in Everett, WA. Using ductless mini splits to heat your home can actually benefit you in a few different ways, as you’ll see below. Be sure to have your ductless mini splits installed and serviced by G & S Heating Cooling & Electric.
They’re Very Efficient
Ductless mini splits are quite efficient for a few different reasons. First of all, there is no ductwork that can develop leaks, so you don’t have to worry about that. Secondly, they don’t generate heat. Instead, they use a heat transfer process in order to absorb heat from the air outside, compress the refrigerant in the system, and use that thermal energy to heat air in the home. This is the same way in which a heat pump heats—more on that below—and is very efficient.
As hinted at above, ductless mini splits are akin to heat pumps in the way in which they operate. So much so, that ductless mini splits are also capable of effectively cooling one’s home during the summer season, just as a heat pump is. This means that you can enjoy year round comfort with just one system.
Zone Control Is Simple
Unless you have a zone control system installed, you are going to have to heat your entire home to one temperature with a furnace or a traditional heat pump. Not so with ductless mini splits. These systems typically have 4 blowers per an outdoor unit, and they are all controlled via their own thermostat. That means that you can easily maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home.
