Benefits of Ductless Heating Systems
You may want to heat your New Bern, North Carolina, home efficiently, retrofit your existing heating system, build an add-on, or supplement your current ductless heating. However, you may be hesitant because you are not sure how to accomplish any of those tasks with your current ductwork. A ductless system could be just the solution you need.
Ductless systems are ideal for zoned heating. It is an efficient heating system that allows you to target air conditioning based on how frequently the rooms in your home are used. Each zone has a thermostat and indoor unit, which is connected to an outdoor compressor unit.
Using zoned heating with a ductless system, you won’t waste power heating empty rooms, as you can direct the heat to where you need it. Ductless heaters are also an easy way to take care of cold spots in your house.
Quick and Easy Installation
Expanding the ductwork in your house can require major construction and can be time-consuming and expensive. Installing a ductless heater is quick and simple. The outside compressor connects to the inside unit by a conduit that only requires a three-inch hole through the wall.
Flexible Placement Options
Most commonly, the air unit is affixed to the wall, but it can be hung from the ceiling or even hidden inside a drop ceiling. The outside compressor should be located nearby to maintain efficiency, but the connecting conduit can stretch up to 40 feet, giving you plenty of placement options.
Efficient Use of Energy
Forced-air heating systems lose heat energy through gaps and holes, as well as insufficient insulation around ductwork. A ductless heating system moves heat into your home without these energy losses, creating a more efficient use of energy. A high-efficiency heating system provides air conditioning where you need it and saves you money on your heating bills.
