Benefits of Switching to a Ductless HVAC Unit

Switching to a ductless HVAC system offers a variety of benefits compared to a more traditional central heater. The one question we get the most about ductless heating is whether or not the system can keep up with demand when temperatures drop.

The short answer is yes, and we can explain why. You can keep reading to learn more about the benefits of investing in a ductless HVAC system, and how one would be set up in your home. Then give our team a call to schedule your service for ductless heating in Oregon City.

How Ductless Heating Works

A ductless HVAC system uses a heat pump. In fact, it is very similar to a central heat pump with the biggest difference being that there is no ductwork for channeling airflow. Instead of a single central unit, your home has multiple smaller units installed strategically around your home. You can select all of the same settings across your units for the same temperature across your entire home, or close doors and maintain different temperatures in different areas of the house.

As a heat pump, your ductless system uses refrigerant for both heating and cooling. This is perhaps one of the greatest benefits of having a ductless heat pump: it offers both heating and cooling, all within a single system. Refrigerant moves in one direction for cooling and in the opposite direction for heating.

Benefits of Ductless Heating

Ductless mini splits are highly efficient. In fact, you may be able to slash your energy costs by as much as half when you switch from a more traditional heater to a ductless unit. These energy savings alone can make the switch worthwhile. 

Ductless units are able to be energy efficient because they do not have attached ductwork that air has to flow through. Instead, 100% of the air that is heated or cooled blows into the rooms of your home directly, which maximizes efficiency. 

Ductless heating also saves space compared to having a large indoor unit. Usually a heater has a dedicated closet space plus attached ductwork. Eliminating the need for a large indoor unit can win you back some closet space. Eliminating the attached ductwork can mean that you have more space in either your attic or your basement to repurpose for other needs.

Ductless units get installed along the ceiling in individual rooms or zones of your home. They are out of the way and don’t take up any space on the floors. Although some people dislike the aesthetic of having a ductless unit installed in each room, it’s not that much different than having air vents along your floors or ceilings.
