In Florida, it’s easy for us to let our heating systems get a little
out of shape since we use them so infrequently. However, when the temperature
drops, you don’t want your family getting left in the cold. If it’s
time to replace your home’s old heating system with a newer model,
you may want to consider installing a ductless system. While heat pumps
may not offer the one-switch heating solution of traditional ducted heaters,
going ductless will improve heating performance while helping you save
on energy bills. Here are a few ways in which our heating service
experts say
ductless systems can boost your home’s energy efficiency:

Utilize Outdoor Air

One of the benefits of going ductless is that it allows you to utilize
outdoor air to your advantage. Instead of generating heat using electricity
or combustion, ductless systems transfer air between their indoor and
outdoor components, sending warm air outside in the summer and cooling
the indoors. As a result, homeowners save money on their energy bills
while minimizing their carbon footprints.

Avoid Losing Heat to Cracks

Another benefit of going ductless is that you don’t have to worry
about losing air through cracks in the ductwork. With traditional heating
systems, efficiency is reduced up to 30 percent because of cracks and
seams in the air ducts. This number climbs even higher for ducts in attics
and basements. Because mini splits offer effective climate control without
ducts, homeowners can rest easy knowing that the money they spend on heating
and AC isn’t going to waste.

Target Heat to Particular Rooms

Why waste your precious energy dollars heating areas of the house you don’t
use? With ductless heating systems, homeowners can adjust the temperature
of different rooms using individual thermostats. You can save money on
your energy bill while ensuring every member of your family is comfortable
throughout the seasons.
