Feeling Chilly? The Benefits of Ductless Heating Might Surprise You.

wall-mounted ductless unitMaybe you’ve built a sun porch onto your home, or converted an attached garage into a living space, thinking those areas would make additional areas to enjoy during the summer months. But maybe, you’ve grown attached to those spaces, and hate to pack them up now that winter is imminent. If you can’t install ductwork to bring heat to your space – or simply don’t want to deal with the mess and remodeling inconvenience involved in installing new ductwork – then you might want to consider ductless heating.

ENERGY STAR explains that ductless heating systems are “highly energy efficient products that deliver warm air directly into different zones in your home, instead of routing it through ducts first.” What this means is, when you install a ductless system, construction will be minimal, and you’ll be able to comfortably enjoy your space year-round, all while experiencing energy savings – and that means you’ll save on your utility bills, too.

When you install a ductless unit, you’ll have complete control over the comfort level of your room. Most ductless systems are operated with a remote control, so you can easily turn the heat up or down, depending on your needs. You won’t lose any heat, as there will be no duct loss, improving comfort and saving money. And, it’s easy to conserve energy when you’re not using the room – unlike a ducted system that delivers heated air to all areas of the home, you can turn your ductless heating off when the room will not be in use.

What often surprises people the most about ductless heating, though, is how non-obtrusive it is in your home. When you install a ductless unit with Family Danz Heating & Cooling, we’ll help you choose a wall or ceiling configuration that blends in seamlessly with your room. Unlike clunky (and sometimes dangerous) space heaters, ductless systems don’t take up valuable floor space, and they offer extremely quiet operation. Another benefit of ductless heating is that it provides filtration of dust, allergens and more, so your air quality is better.

Any space that you want to use, but are unable to because of a lack of ductwork, is probably an ideal candidate for a ductless heating system. When you work with Family Danz, we’ll tell you about the different options for ductless heating, and help you find the best solution for your needs.
