Hot and long as our summers may be, the fact remains that no home is complete if not outfitted with a dependable heating system. When temperatures dip far below comfortable levels during the winter season, it is up to your heating system to ensure that your home is kept warm and cozy. That being said, there are many ways in which you may choose to heat your home.
One option which we here at Cool Tech Mechanical frequently recommend to our customers is a ductless heating system. Ductless heaters, or ductless mini splits, offer many unique advantages over more traditional heating systems. They may not be right for every home or user, but you are wise to consider these benefits carefully. Read on, and please feel free to contact us with any unanswered questions that you may have.
Cool Tech Mechanical provides ductless heating installation, replacement, repair, and maintenance services in Arlington, TX and the surrounding DFW areas.
What is a Ductless Split System?
A ductless split system, as you may well have guessed, is a heating system which does not require the use of air ducts in order to distribute heat throughout a household. Forgoing ductwork entirely, individual, wall–mounted blowers are used instead. These blowers connect to an outdoor condenser unit, much like that used in traditional split central systems. By utilizing this design, a ductless split system can benefit the homeowner in some unique ways.
First of all, eliminating air ducts also means that the risk of energy loss via faulty air ducts is eliminated as well. This can help you to save money when heating your home. Additionally, using the individual blower units allows you to maintain different temperatures in different areas of the home, as they operate independently of one another and run on individual thermostats. Finally, it is important to note that ductless heaters may be more aptly described as ductless heating and cooling systems, as they can make use of heat pump technology in order to keep your home comfortable year round.
We Install and Service Ductless Heating Systems
It should go without saying that only a trained professional can be trusted to install and service your new ductless heating system, or any existing system that you may have. One might think that the elimination of ductwork means that installing a ductless system is quite simple. However, integrating multiple blowers and thermostats into your household, and running refrigerant and power lines from those blowers to the outdoor unit, takes considerable skill. In truth, it is the level of skill that only a qualified technician possesses.
Not only must your ductless heater installation be top–notch, but it is also necessary that you schedule professional ductless heating maintenance if you hope to keep your system up and running at peak performance and efficiency levels. There is no point in investing in a system with such potential for efficient heating if you do not plan on doing so. Also, because ductless mini splits are still mechanical systems, you will encounter, at some point, problems with your system’s operations. When you do, be sure to schedule your ductless heating system repairs with the pros at Cool Tech Mechanical. Trust us when we tell you that we will help you to enjoy the very best performance that your ductless heater has to offer.
