Is Ductless Heating Right for Me?

We’ve officially hit fall here in Huntsville, TX and that means winter won’t be far behind. If you’re looking at installing a new heating system, now is the time to pull the trigger on it. But as you make your deliberations, you might want to consider a ductless heating system over the more traditional centralized models that rely on a system of ducts spreading out through the attic and crawlspaces of your home. Ductless heating won’t work for every home and if your ducted system is working well for you, there’s no reason to switch. But ductless heating can solve a number of problems, and if a ducted system can’t work or is causing problems, you owe it to yourself to ask if the system is right for you.

How It Works

Ducts systems work by generating the heat from a central furnace, then blowing it through the ducts to the various rooms in your home. Ductless systems simple cut out the middle man. Instead of one single heater, the system uses multiple heaters spaced throughout your home, each with its own thermostat and control panels. That allows you to turn each one on and off individually, as well as adjusting the temperature separately for each part of your home.

The Benefits

Ductless heating systems cost more to install than traditional systems, since each heater must be set up separately. In exchange, they offer increased savings from month to month: it costs less to run ductless systems, especially if you turn off the heat in rooms you aren’t using. That comes on top of the ability to adjust the temperature in individual rooms to suit your taste. And of course, ductless heating systems do away with ducts and vents, which might not otherwise be possible in your home.
