Ductless heating systems are a type of heat pump. Unlike a standard heat pump, which consists of a single indoor and outdoor unit, a ductless heating system has an outdoor unit which connects with multiple air handlers located on the interior of the property.
These air handlers are mounted on the walls of each room as needed. The handlers include a blower and a coil that send warm air straight into the space. True to its namesake, there are no ducts required for this heating system.
If you are trying to decide whether you should invest in a ductless HVAC system or baseboard heaters, it’s important to note that the quality of baseboard heaters varies widely. Most baseboard heater models are noisy and provide poor and inconsistent temperature control. They get hot to the touch and children and pets can easily reach them thanks to their placement along the floor.
The two types of baseboard heaters, hot water and electric, are also less efficient than most ductless heating pumps. Although baseboard heating offers temperature control via room thermostats, often it is not possible to deliver a precise temperature to every room. The end result is that smaller rooms are often warmer than larger rooms in the same building when the property utilizes baseboard heating.
Indoor air pollutants can build up inside of the ductwork of a central heating and cooling system, which can spread dust, dirt, viruses, and bacteria around to every room where the ductwork is installed. This can cause people to experience allergic reactions, worsening asthma, and other problems.
Ductwork also needs to be periodically inspected for problems, which can become costly once maintenance tasks, such as sealing leaks, adding insulation and cleaning are added to the bill. On the other hand, ductless systems don't have these problems and are also much quieter than central heating systems.
Oil furnaces use heating oil, which is a nonrenewable resource and an environmental pollutant. Annual heating costs are often significantly higher for individuals who use oil to heat a home versus a ductless heat pump.
If you are interested in selecting a heating system that will produce many benefits for your property, then a ductless heating system from Mitsubishi Electric may be the right choice for several reasons:
The advances in the heating performance of these units are unmatched in the industry. Mitsubishi’s available H2i® technology can heat your space effectively even when temperatures outside are down to -13º F. The Hot Start technology delivers hot air as soon as the unit is powered on with no drafts.
Indoor units may be installed anywhere in the room — on the ceiling, on the walls or on floor. This gives you the freedom to select the option that works best with your space’s décor. Choose from ceiling-recessed, horizontal-ducted, and floor-mounted indoor unit options.
Both the indoor and outdoor units are specifically designed to provide quiet operation. With the indoor unit operating as low as 19dB, the operation of your heating system will be quieter than a human whisper.
Wireless control allows you to control your home’s heating at the touch of a button. In addition, select M-Series indoor units are also capable of sensing troublesome regions to regulate ambient temperatures more closely.
Ductless heating systems require proper maintenance in order to protect your investment. Make sure to schedule maintenance for your ductless system before the season begins. In fact, we recommend that you have your system reviewed by a technician once in the spring and again in the fall, before colder weather sets in.
Ductless heating systems do require cleaning. A technician will remove and clean any indoor air quality components, build up from the condensate drain, the evaporator coil and more. These tasks ensure that your system works more efficiently, helping you to pay less on your monthly bills.
Maintenance also ensures that your system operates efficiently for longer. You will also save money by avoiding repairs that result from improper or poor maintenance of your system.
