Replacing Your Heater? Consider Going Ductless

Are you in need of a heating repair, due to an unexpected breakdown of your home heating system? Are you confident that your heater will get you through the remainder of this winter, but are planning on a replacement once the warmer weather rolls around? If so, then we strongly encourage you to consider going ductless. If you are not familiar with all that ductless mini splits have to offer, then now is a great time to do a bit of research. By using ductless mini splits in Chesapeake, VA, you can enjoy a few great benefits that other heating and cooling systems cannot match.

No, We Did Not Misspeak

When we said heating and cooling system up above, that is precisely what we meant. You see, ductless mini split systems are capable of doing both, because they utilize heat pump technology. By using a refrigerant cycle much like a traditional air conditioner, these systems can cool homes effectively during the summer season. However, they can also reverse this refrigerant cycle, meaning that they can use existing heat in the air outside in order to heat homes during the winter season. Not only is this very convenient, but it is a startlingly efficient means of doing so.

But Why Not Use a Traditional Heat Pump?

Sure, the traditional heat pump can both heat and cool a home, but it cannot eliminate the many problems that can plague ductwork the way that a ductless mini split can. Leaky ductwork is one of the most common causes of energy loss in homes, and it can also lead to issues with indoor air quality. Furthermore, not every home is necessarily going to be able to accommodate bulky ductwork. By eliminating the need for ductwork altogether, ductless mini splits eliminate these problems. And, because the individual blowers that the system uses are controlled independently of one another, you can also enjoy simple zone-controlled comfort throughout your home.
