For homeowners who have not installed, or cannot install, central heating in their living space, a ductless unit would be the best option of all. Ductless heat pumps, also known as mini splits, do have a high up-front cost, but they more than make up for it in the following ways.
Energy Efficient Performance
Mini splits are more energy efficient than ducted heat pumps and furnaces. As long as you set your temperature to a reasonable level, these systems can easily cut down your utility bill by a quarter or 30%.
Besides that, they boast variable-speed operation. This means that rather than letting the system switch on and off each time the temperature drops below the set point, you can have it run continually in the background; it will automatically slow down its speed when the set point is reached.
Another advantage of min splits lies in multi-zone heating. While a central heater heats every room, occupied or not, you can turn every mini split on and off according to who’s home. Every air handler (the unit that goes inside a home) comes with its own thermostat. Energy savings aren’t all; your family members can have their room at the temperature they want rather than compromising on one single set point.
Mini splits are priced according to how many air handlers can be connected to one unit. The current maximum number is eight. Larger homes with more than eight rooms may need a second unit.
Longer Life Span
It’s well-known that mini splits are durable products. Compared to the 15 or 20 years that a ducted heat pump lasts, a mini-split system can keep running efficiently for up to 30 years. You can only achieve this, though, with annual maintenance.
