Is Ductless Heating Right for Me?

ductless-blowerIt just might be. Is that not the answer that you were hoping for? We understand that homeowners today have a lot on their plates and, with so many different technologies at their disposal, sometimes they just want a straight answer. That being said, there is no way for certain to say that ductless heating in Farmington is right for you without having a lot more information to work with. We can say with certainty that ductless heating has a lot of unique benefits to offer, though.

For those homeowners that do find what their looking for in ductless heating, nothing else will ever compare. The design of these systems, their method of heating, and their convenience of installation really is tough to beat. Today, we’ll take a closer look at the way in which ductless mini splits work. If you think that ductless heating is right for you, then we are the company that you want installing and servicing your system! 

Ductless Heaters Use Heat Pump Technology

The winters here in New Mexico are mild. That’s not coming as news to anyone. What some people that don’t live here mistakenly believe, however, is that it never gets cold. Sure, winters are mild. That doesn’t mean that we don’t have plenty of need for our home heating systems, though. Things get chilly in the winter, especially when the sun is down!

Heat pumps heat homes by transferring existing heat from the air outside into them. That is ideal for a mild winter climate like ours. It makes the heater very efficient, as only a small amount of electricity is used to transfer heat, rather than generating new heat via the combustion of fuel or electric resistance.

Refrigerant evaporates in the outdoor unit, drawing heat out of the air outside. That refrigerant is condensed to boost its thermal energy, and is then condensed at the indoor coils. That allows the heat to be released into the living space. Heat pumps, including ductless mini splits, can also reverse this process in order to cool homes, too.

What’s Unique About Ductless Systems?

Ductless mini splits are heat pumps, but they don’t use a centralized air distribution system the way that traditional heat pumps do. They use independent, wall-mounted blowers to heat and cool the rooms that they are installed in directly. That allows the homeowner greater control over heating (and cooling) than ever before.

Each blower unit is controlled by its own thermostat. You heat or cool only those areas that you want to, and only as much as you want to. Because you don’t need ductwork, these systems are ideal for existing properties that don’t have ductwork in place. Plus, you don’t have to worry about efficiency dropping and air quality issues caused by leaky ductwork! If all of that sounds like a good deal to you, contact a member of our team today to discuss your ductless future!
