Ductless Heating System
Ductless heating and cooling systems are a great fit for electrically heated homes; they provide even air distribution for consistent, year-round comfort at a fraction of the cost of inefficient baseboard, wall and ceiling heat, or electric furnaces. Mini splits have no ducts, so they avoid the energy losses associated with the ductwork of central forced air systems. Duct losses can account for more than 30% of energy consumption for space conditioning, especially if the ducts are in an unconditioned space such as an attic.
In comparison to other add-on systems, mini splits offer more interior design flexibility. The indoor air handlers can be suspended from a ceiling, mounted flush into a drop ceiling, or hung on a wall. Floor-standing models are also available. Most indoor units are about seven inches deep and have sleek, high tech-looking jackets. Many also offer a remote control to make it easier to turn the system on and off when it’s positioned high on a wall or suspended from a ceiling.
Incentives and Rebates
Utility incentives and rebates make a ductless upgrade more affordable than ever. Search below for incentives and rebates available in your area and start saving right away. Heating and cooling costs the average homeowner about $1,000 a year – nearly half the home’s total energy bill. Replacing your system with an ENERGY STAR certified model could cut your heating and cooling costs by 30%. Ductless Heating Systems give you more comfort and control. In traditional heating and cooling systems, you generally have one thermostat that controls the temperature of your entire home. With ductless heating and cooling systems, you can have control over the temperature of each zone.
Why Ductless Saves You Money
No ducts are required. The indoor components are mounted directly on the wall. A variety of attractive options are available from ENERGY STAR partners. In houses with traditional forced-air heating and cooling systems, ducts are used to distribute conditioned air throughout the house. In a typical house, however, about 20 percent of the air that moves through the duct system is lost due to leaks, holes, and poorly connected ducts. With ductless heating and cooling, duct losses are eliminated improving comfort, and saving you money.
Get Rid of Your Old Window Unit
We can deliver both heating and cooling. Ductless heating and cooling systems are often a convenient, single solution for homes that formerly relied on electric baseboard heaters in the winter and window air conditioning units in the summer. However, in cold climates, consumers are advised to retain a supplemental heating system in case backup heat is needed on very cold winter days. ENERGY STAR certified AC only systems are also available. Ductless heating and cooling systems have been around for over 30 years and are used widely throughout the world.
Ductless Heating System
Ductless, mini-split-system heat pumps (mini splits) make good retrofit add-ons to houses with “non-ducted” heating systems, such as hydronic (hot water heat), radiant panels, and space heaters (wood, kerosene, propane). They can also be a good choice for room additions where extending or installing distribution ductwork is not feasible, and very efficient new homes that require only a small space conditioning system.
