If you live in Lansing, then staying warm during the wintertime is surely a top priority. When temperatures drop below freezing, you want to be confident that your home or business’s heating system will do its job, efficiently heating your house without costing a fortune in energy expenses. Unfortunately for many homeowners, churches, and businesses in Lansing, when wintertime rolls around, energy costs skyrocket, and overpaying for heating seems like a must. At Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning, we want you to know that there is another options: ductless heating.
A traditional heating system heats air (or water) in a single location, and then forces the hot air (or steam) through ductwork in the house, distributing it to different rooms. In newer homes, smaller homes, or homes that rely on natural gas, this is an efficient method, and effectively heats while also remaining affordable.
For many people in older homes or those who rely on electric heat, though, the heat-distributed-by-ducts system doesn’t do it’s job. For these people, a ductless unit may work better. A ductless unit provides zone-heating, and is comprised of an indoor unit – or multiple indoor units – that is attached to a single outdoor unit. Rather than traveling through ducts, the ductless heating system forces air directly into the room that it is heating, resulting in fewer energy losses.
There are pluses and minuses to a ductless heating system, which need to be considered on a case-by-case basis. Some of the advantages of ductless heating include:
There are, however, some potential downsides to ductless units, too. These include:
