Cutting Costs in the Colder Seasons
September 22, 2020
Fall is upon us, and you know what that means. You’ll be turning on your heating system soon. It seems these Pennsylvania nights are already starting to get a little chilly. With everyone staying home more this year, you may be thinking that you’ll use the heat more often, and you may be also wondering how you can cut down on heating costs.
Ductless Mini-Split Systems in PA & DE
A ductless mini-split system is an air conditioner that can also be sourced for heat. Ductless mini-splits have one outdoor unit and one or more indoor units that work together to regulate the temperature of your home.
How Can You Save with a Ductless Mini-Split Heat Pump?
Mini-split heat pumps are a lot more efficient than conventional heaters and require a lot less energy. Conventional heating systems must push heat through ductwork, which requires more energy than not doing so. Plus, when using ductwork to heat your home, the ducts may develop leaks and cracks, adding to a greater risk of heat loss. With a ductless system, there’s a lot less opportunity for wasted energy as the system doesn’t have to move heat.
Ductless heat pumps work by zones, helping you heat the rooms you want when you want, so you can choose not to heat unoccupied rooms, which will help you save on energy costs, too. Most ductless mini-split systems are ENERGY STAR® rated, making them more affordable than traditional heat sources or space heaters. They are also easy to install because they require no ductwork.
