How Ductless Heating Outshines Ducted Heating Systems

When it comes to investing in a new heater, you have a wide variety of options. But your first choice is to decide between a system with or without ductwork. Ductless heating is becoming increasingly popular, and we would love to share why.

If you’re interested in ductless heating in Fort Wayne, IN, give our team a call to schedule an in-home assessment. We can review how a ductless system works with your home’s unique layout so you can decide if it’s the right choice for you. You can also keep reading to learn more about some of the key benefits of having ductless heating compared to a furnace that attaches to a network of ducts.

Ability to Customize

A ductless mini split heating system gets installed a little differently than a central heater. Instead of a single unit for your home, each room has its own miniature heating unit installed along the ceiling. Because of this unique design, you can customize temperatures around your home as long as you keep doors closed. Someone who likes their room a little warmer can turn the temperature up, while another person who likes to temperature a little cooler can turn it down. This level of customization is not available with a central heater.

Elevated Efficiency

Ductless mini splits are very well known for their efficiency when it comes to energy use. With a central heater, air gets directed through a network of ducts before flowing into your home. Since a ductless mini split does not have any ductwork attached, all of the heated air blows directly into your home, making it completely energy efficient. No air gets lost before contributing to the comfort of your home. Experts estimate that it is possible to save up to 50% on your energy costs for heating and cooling when you switch to a ductless mini split.

Peace and Quiet

This unique system also offers the benefit of operating very quietly. In fact, you might compare it to the sound of a person breathing, all of the decibels put out by a ductless mini split are even lower than that. As a result, your home will also be a little quieter.

Let’s face it, a central heater can get loud as it operates to heat your home using very large components to produce a lot of conditioned air at one time. Since the operations inside of a ductless mini split are smaller, they are also naturally quieter.

Space Saving

Investing in a ductless mini split is also a great way to save space around your home. There is no requirement for a central heating unit, eliminating the need to have a central heater in a closet or other area of your home. Plus a ductless mini split offers both heating and cooling all in one so you also eliminate the need for a separate air conditioner. 

You will still have a large outdoor unit that the mini splits around your home all connect to. If you’re worried about the individual units taking up space in a room, you can cast those thoughts aside. A ductless mini split gets installed on the wall along your ceiling so it is out of the way.
