If you’re in North Palm Beach, Florida, you don’t need to use your heating system as much as other folks. Still, there are times when you will need it, and there are better options than a traditional gas or electric system. Learn why you may want to consider a ductless mini-split heat pump instead of a traditional furnace for your Florida home.
Lower Utility Bills
Conventional gas and electric heating systems can be costly when it comes to utility bills. On the other hand, ductless mini-split systems pay for themselves in energy savings over time. You’ll never have to worry about repairing duct leaks, and you can zone your system so you’re only heating the rooms that need it at any given time.
Ducted systems can get debris backed up or spring leaks that cause banging or whistling sounds. But ductless mini-split systems are sealed and quiet. There’s no noise to worry about at all, and the units also tend to be smaller.
Ducted systems can attract pests like mice and give them an easy way to run through your house. With a ductless system, you won’t have this problem. Pests can’t get in this way, and any ducts you do have will either be removed or the registers will be sealed, which can help keep your house clean and free from infestation.
Better Air Quality
Traditional ducted systems can also contaminate your air. That’s because they tend to spread dirt, pet dander, dust and other allergens throughout your house as the air blows through the registers. This is especially true if you have a leak or you forget to change the filter. Ductless systems don’t have this issue, so your indoor air quality will be better overall.
These are just a few of the reasons a ductless mini-split heat pump can be a good choice for your home. For more information, call North County Cooling Inc. at 561-288-2063.
