Get Rid of Dangerous Space Heaters and Install a Ductless HVAC

January 10, 2021

If you live in a small home or need additional heating, it’s tempting to use space heaters. But space heaters are too dangerous and inefficient for your California, MD, home. Ductless mini-split or ductless HVAC systems are safe alternatives that offer many benefits and options.

Zoned Temperature Control

With a ductless HVAC system, a professional technician will install individual compact units in key areas of the home and connect them to an outdoor unit. This enables zoned temperature control. This make it so you can change the temperature of a room without changing the temperature of your entire home.

Fast Installation

Because they’re ductless, these systems don’t require ductwork installation, inspection or extension. This makes ductless systems simpler, faster and cheaper to install. So you’ll save money on a new heating system that’s installed in just a few hours.

Improved Air Quality

Since air from ductless HVAC systems doesn’t flow through ducts, they don’t circulate dust, dirt, dander and other allergens. Ductless systems also feature multi-layer filtration designed to dehumidify and absorb these pollutants. Reduction or elimination of pollutants significantly improves indoor air quality (IAQ) and safety.

Increased Efficiency

Ductless heating is energy efficient by design. Zoning uses less electricity and allows you to turn units on or off as needed, which reduces energy bills. The units also distribute heat more evenly, improving comfort.

Less Maintenance and Enhanced Safety

Unlike traditional HVAC, ductless systems don’t require duct cleaning, filter changes, annual checkups/tune-ups or any complex maintenance. They’re also safer than traditional systems and space heaters. With ductless units, there’s little to no risk of toxic gas buildup, overheating or fire.

Ductless HVAC maintenance includes three components: 1) cleaning the air filters, 2) keeping the outdoor unit clear of debris for optimum airflow,and 3) cleaning the vents. Although this maintenance may seem simple, you should have it performed by a professional to ensure safety. Call and schedule ductless HVAC maintenance with Hancock Refrigeration Heating & Air Conditioning, and we’ll make sure your system is free of problems.
