Most homeowners use ductwork with their heating systems, in order to distribute heated air throughout their homes. Furnaces are the most common form of forced air heaters, though air-source heat pumps are also very common in this part of the country. If your home doesn’t have ductwork, though, or if you’re interested in avoiding some of the issues common with ducted systems, you can heat your house without its use.
Now, radiant heating systems obviously don’t use ductwork. However, they are also difficult to install in existing properties, and you may not want to sacrifice the prompt comfort that blowing heated air into your home offers. That is why you should consider heating your living space with a ductless mini split in Lake Stevens, WA.
The Ductless Difference
There are a few incredible benefits that lead homeowners to choose ductless mini splits. First of all, there is no risk of wasting energy due to leaky ductwork, because there is simply no ductwork to leak. Individual blowers are connected to a single outdoor unit via power, refrigerant, and drainage lines packed in a conduit. The blowers heat the areas in which they are located directly.
They do so by utilizing heat pump technology, which is great for our relatively mild winter climate. Heat is drawn out from the air outside, the refrigerant is compressed, and its thermal energy is used to heat the air that is recirculated back into your home. This is an incredibly efficient way in which to heat your home.
Zone control is inherent with such systems, as each blower is controlled by its own individual thermostat, and the use of heat pump technology means that you can use the very same system to cool your home in the summer. For efficient, year round comfort in just one system, a ductless heat pump is well worth your investment.
