Need a New Heater? Consider a Ductless Mini Split!

We are certainly embroiled in the heating season as we speak, so we hope that you’ve got a heater that is up and running and giving you a great performance already. If this is not the case, or if your heater has broken down entirely, contact us right away. You don’t want to wait any longer to secure a great heating system before the temperatures drop any further.

Before you rush into a heating replacement, though, we recommend that you take the time to consider available options carefully. You may just find a system that you are not familiar with, but which suits your needs perfectly. For many, this means using a ductless heating system in Fuquay-Varina, NC.

Better Efficiency, Control, Air Quality, and Versatility

That may sound like a big claim, and it really is. It is also a claim that the ductless mini split can make good on, though. Let’s discuss all of these points individually. We’ll start with efficiency.

A ductless mini split system is a heat pump, which means that it uses the refrigerant cycle in order to use existing heat when warming your home. Imagine an AC in reverse, and you’ll have the basics down. Refrigerant is evaporated in the outside unit, drawing heat out of the air. That refrigerant is then compressed,which boosts its thermal energy, and that energy is used by the blowers indoors to heat the air within.

Because a heat pump can reverse its operation, this also means that the ductless mini split can cool your home. That’s where the versatility comes in. Why have 2 designated systems, when you can enjoy year round comfort with just one system?

Since individual blowers are used, and each can be regulated independently of the others with its own thermostat, the ductless mini split offers great control. You can maintain different temperatures in different areas of the house. This adds to the efficiency capability of the system, as well.

Finally, there is the air quality to consider. When air ducts leak, as they often do, they waste energy (another point for ductless systems as far as energy efficiency goes). However, they also let pollutants into the system, and those pollutants can then be distributed throughout the entire house. Getting rid of the ducts removes this concern completely.
