Just as the name indicates, a ductless heating system doesn’t require any ducts to operate. And while there may be other types of heating systems you can install that don’t require ducts, such as portable electric heaters that plug into the wall, a ductless heating system offers many advantages. It’s a highly efficient, whole-home heating solution, and it doubles as an air conditioner! Ductless heating installation and service is a job for professionals, as it involves heavy equipment, precise measurements, and several components that must be in place for the unit to run properly.

A ductless heating system has two main components: the outside compressor unit and the indoor air handler. The indoor air handler is installed high up on a wall, and for a single room or a small apartment, you should only need one. But for an entire home, several indoor units are necessary for different areas of the house. The main components of the ductless heating and cooling system connect to one another as refrigerant continuously cycles through every component. The refrigerant absorbs heat from your home in the warmer months, which then disperses outside. In the summertime, the refrigerant absorbs heat from the outdoors in order to move it inside.
The primary benefit of a ductless heating system is that it doesn’t involve ducts. Ducts contribute to quite a bit of energy loss from month to month, and the United States Environment Protection Agency estimates that the majority of ducts contribute to up to 30% of heating and cooling losses. Most ducts have small holes and cracks that add up to a significant decrease in efficiency, so renovating your home to include ducts may not be worth the trouble.
Furthermore, ductless mini splits have built-in zone control. Because there are multiple units located around the house, you can control the temperature of any single indoor unit without affecting the temperature of other rooms and zones. This means that family members can adjust the temperature in any zone to their own comfort levels in one area without upsetting your desired settings. Furthermore, these units are rated highly for efficiency during both the heating and cooling seasons.
Of course, any ducted or ductless heating system will require repair eventually. While ductless systems have long lifespans, any trouble with the unit indicates the need for immediate repair. Some common ductless repairs include refrigerant leaks, loose hardware, dirty coils, and electrical trouble. Any of these problems can eventually force the unit to breakdown, so call our team for repairs as soon as possible.
