How Ductless Heating May Benefit You

If you’re thinking about installing a new heater before the next winter season, it might be a good idea for you to consider ductless heating in Oregon City, OR. There are a variety of reasons that ductless heating is gaining a lot of traction with homeowners as one of the more popular installation choices. 

Even though it’s almost summer, now is still a great time to be thinking about heater installation. With our unpredictable weather, you never know when you might need your heater during our “summers.” Also, your new system will be in place and ready to go when the fall and winter months come around. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of ductless heating, including how you can benefit from the system for cooling, too.

Heating and Cooling

Perhaps the greatest benefit of a ductless heater is that it offers both heating and cooling all in one. That’s because ductless mini split systems condition your air using a heat pump.

When you have a heat pump, it can work in both heating and cooling modes by removing heat from the air in the summer, and bringing heat into your home during the winter. That’s right, even when the temperatures are very cold outside, there is still some heat in the air that can be transferred into your home.

Energy Efficiency

Another great benefit of a ductless heater is that it is very energy efficient. If you have a more traditional forced air system heater, a lot of the heat can get lost in the ductwork. Heat also gets lost due to the combustion process in some heaters.

But with a ductless heater, all of the heat transfers directly into the room, so no energy is lost. Because of this, you can save substantially on your monthly energy costs compared to a heater that uses a system of ductwork. 

Temperature Preferences

It’s very common for different people in a household to have varying temperature preferences. With a more traditional heater, you cannot accommodate these differences. However, a ductless system has a unit for each zone or room of your home, depending on the layout.

That means that when you keep the doors closed, you can have different temperatures in each room of your house. One person can maintain a cooler room, while another person maintains a warmer room. 

Space Saving

You can save a lot of space by investing in a ductless mini split heater. It still has to have a large outdoor unit, but you don’t have to dedicate space inside to an indoor portion of the unit. Instead, each room has its own smaller air handler attached near the ceiling. You can also get back some of your space by way of getting rid of ductwork in your attic or basement.
