Here in Houston, TX, heating systems extend far beyond the traditional forced-air furnaces that most people expect. Ductless mini-split systems, in particular, constitute a considerable break from business as usual, and can add a great deal to your home as a result. Instead of once central unit heating your entire home, ductless mini split systems use individual units spaced throughout your home to condition the air. Each unit can heat (and with some models cool) a single portion of your home, such as a room or a hallway. It’s an efficient system that also provides a great deal of options.
Here’s how ductless mini split systems make your home more comfortable:
The individual tailoring is the key. Such each section of the house can be set individually, that means you can set different temperatures for different sections. For example, say you’re cooking over a hot stove in the kitchen and you’d like the heat turned down to compensate. But over in the living room, your spouse is watching television and wants the temperature to be at least five degrees warmer than you’d like it set in the kitchen. With a centralized system, one or the other of you would have to suffer, since the furnace heats both rooms equally. But with a ductless mini split system, you can lower the temperature for the unit that handles the kitchen, while your spouse keeps the living room unit warmer. Ductless mini-split systems allow that kind of comfort control, which can prove a godsend in the right circumstances.
That comes on top of the energy efficiency of ductless mini split systems, and the fact that you can just shot off the heat in parts of the house you aren’t using (saving a considerable amount of energy in the process).
