Why Heat My Home with a Ductless Mini Split?

There are a lot of different heaters on the market today. Frankly, choosing the right one for your home can be a bit daunting. We know that you may want to rush through the system selection process if your heater gives out on you, but you really should always take the opportunity to consider your options carefully.

One system to keep in mind is the ductless mini split. If you are looking for outstanding comfort, efficiency, and versatility, it’s tough to be a ductless heater. Here are few factors to consider.

Why Go Ductless?

Ductless mini split heating systems aren’t just heating systems. They are heat pumps. With the great heat pump comes great potential.

First of all, you must understand that heat pumps do not burn fuel or consume electricity in order to generate new heat. Instead, they use the heat transfer process in order to make use of existing heat outdoors. They will evaporate refrigerant outside in order to draw heat out of the air, compress that refrigerant, and then condense it indoors. They can then use that heat to warm the air in your home.

Now, ductless heat pumps differ from basic air source heat pumps in that they don’t use air ducts. They use individual, wall mounted blowers in order to heat the house. These blowers are independently controlled, so that you can maintain different temperatures in different areas of your home. Plus, the elimination of ductwork means there is no risk of energy loss via duct leaks!

Finally, there is the versatility of the system to consider. When a heat pump heats a home, it works like an AC in reverse. Air conditioners don’t generate coolness, after all. They remove heat from the air. Well, ductless mini splits, like other heat pumps, can reverse their operation, meaning that they can work as both ACs and heaters.
