Will I Have to Maintain a Ductless Heating System?
Just as any other type of heating system needs maintenance, so does a ductless heating system. In fact, because a ductless heating system uses a heat pump to provide your home with heat, it is strongly advised that you schedule maintenance for your ductless heating system twice a year. This is because as a heat pump, your ductless heating system also provides cooling. The result is twice the amount of wear and tear on your heat pump versus a season’s worth on separate heating and cooling systems. The trained HVAC experts at Big Horn Heating & Cooling will provide you with a full tune–up for your heat pump, ensuring that it will run optimally throughout the winter and summer months.
What Are the Benefits of Ductless Heating Systems?
So what kinds of benefits does a ductless heating system offer you? Here is an overview:
- Very good energy efficiency – heat pumps use only 25–50% of the electricity of a whole home air conditioning system and zero fossil fuels. This makes these systems very energy efficient choices.
- Customized heating – the individual blowers of a ductless system automatically offer your home customized heating because each blower works independently.
- Long lifespan – heat pumps last an average of 20–25 years versus traditional heating systems like furnaces and boilers, which typically last 15–20.
- Easily expanded – every outdoor unit of a ductless system can support up to four indoor blowers (some can go as high as six). As long as your outdoor unit can support it, all you need to expand the system is another indoor blower.
Can I Install or Service a Ductless Heating System Myself?
Ductless heating systems may seem far less complicated than other types of heating systems because they don’t have ductwork, but this doesn’t mean just anyone should handle them. These systems need to be sized correctly for installation, and the indoor blowers need to be properly mounted and connected to the outdoor unit in order to work. The blowers themselves are complicated because each blower has its own fan, set of coils and air filter. In a sense, each blower operates as a mini air handler. To ensure that your ductless system is installed and serviced properly at all times, call experts, like the ones at Big Horn Heating & Cooling.
