Heating options aren’t limited to the traditional central furnace, which relies on ducts to carry air throughout your home. Not every home as ducts, and even those that do may want to consider an alternate option for home heating. If you’re considering a New Heating System for your home, it pays to consider some alternate options to the standard central heating system.
Are you ready to go ductless this season? There are a lot of good reasons why.
Ducts can do the job, but they’re not as efficient as other forms of heating. They rely almost entirely on hot air blown through your house, which can create drafts and cold spots as well as trouble for those ducts that don’t travel through insulated parts of your home. Furthermore, you don’t normally have options as to which parts of your house get heated. It’s all the same temperature regardless of individual tastes or the fact that you only need to heat the one room you’re using.
A ductless system, on the other hand, usually uses energy much more efficiently than a traditional system. They often use radiant heating or similar methods to warm the air, which doesn’t create a draft and doesn’t need as much energy to leave you feeling toasty and comfortable. Ductless mini split systems and the like usually have zone controls, letting you keep one area of the home warm while leaving the others unheated (saving you money on your monthly bills in the process). Besides saving you money in monthly bills, they also offer you greater control over how and when you heat your home.
