Schererville Ductless Heating for Homes and Businesses
Finding a way to affordably heat your home or business during a Schererville winter can be a headache, particularly if you have an outdated central heating unit that is inefficient and expensive to run, or worse – you are living in an older home that doesn’t even have ducts! To combat the problem, you may be running the heat through your central heating and also relying on the use of a space heater to keep warm. The result: an energy bill that you can hardly stand.
At Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning, we are happy to say that heating your home or business doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg, and yes – there is a way to actually experience warmth in your home without spending a fortune. The solution: ductless heating.
Ductless Heating – What’s That?
Ductless heating is the perfect solution for homeowners (or business owners and churches!) who:
- Want to heat a separate zone or room of their house;
- Only need to heat a zone of their house at certain times of the year or on certain occasions (i.e. over the holidays when the guest bedroom is in use);
- Live in an older home or use an older building that does not have built-in ductwork;
- Need to heat a part of the house that is not attached, such as a stand-alone garage, mother-in-law apartment, or shed; or
- Are remodeling or building and do not want to have to worry about the process of installing ductwork.
Here’s how ductless heating works: Ductless heat pumps work by connecting an outdoor unit to an indoor unit through refrigerant lines. Luckily, these lines only need a small hole for outdoor installation, meaning that construction is minimal and can be completed in a single day. What’s more, a single outdoor unit can support eight indoor units! The ductless system then works by providing heating and cooling through the heat pump.
Why Is Ductless Heating a Great Solution?
As mentioned above, ductless heating has a number of benefits. For example, it provides for flexibility – homeowners are able to heat zones of their house without turning heat on throughout the entire home – and a less invasive installation procedure (ducts don’t need to be installed). More than that, though, ductless heating is an incredibly energy efficient heating solution. In fact, energy efficient ductless heating pumps use about 60 percent less energy than do standard home heating systems, in part because duct losses often account for more than 30 percent of energy consumption. This means that you will not only be making a move that is much better for the environment, but you will also notice a reduction on your monthly heating bills, too. (As a note, ductless systems also reduce energy expenses when used for cooling needs, too).
Ductless heating systems are also reliable, and require little maintenance and few repairs over the years. These systems are also more affordable than is the cost of installing ductwork to install a central heating system.
