Ductless Heating in Chicago, IL by ServiceMax

Home » Heating » Ductless Heating

Forced–air heating systems, like furnaces and heat pumps, are the most common way to provide comfort for homes during chilly weather. However, not all forced–air heaters have to use a network of ducts running through the walls and ceilings to spread heat throughout a house. The development of ductless mini split systems allows homeowners to bypass entirely the need for ducts while still enjoying the convenience of a forced–air heater.

There are many advantages to choosing to choose ductless heating in Chicago, IL. You will need the professional assistance of a company like ServiceMax to find the ideal ductless mini split system for your home and install it so it does the job you expect.

How Ductless Heating Keeps Your Home Warm

Ductless heating and cooling systems are also known as ductless mini split heat pumps because instead of using the standard "split" system for a heat pump—with a single outdoor unit and indoor unit—they use one outdoor unit and a series of smaller indoor blower units mounted throughout different rooms. Each of these blowers contains its own fan and coil, and they connect to the outdoor cabinet through refrigerant and power lines that run out the back of the units and through the walls. The blowers send heated air directly into the rooms without needing a ventilation network to distribute the air.

The Benefits of a Ductless Split System

One of the main reasons that homeowners wish to install ductless heating is because their homes lack the room to fit large ductwork systems. Older homes were often built without ventilation systems in mind, and ductless mini splits are an ideal way to provide these buildings with centralized heating without requiring space–consuming ducts. Ductless heating in Chicago, IL is also ideal for new home construction or home remodeling: homeowners have the freedom to design their new house exactly as they wish when ductwork isn’t a concern, and they will have much more space available.

Ductless heating also works more energy–efficiently than standard heat pumps and furnaces because they do not lose heat energy along the length of the ducts. The systems also will not suffer from problems due to damaged, broken, or leaky ducts.

Because ductless mini splits work using individual blowers, you can control which rooms in a home receive warmth. With a central heater, you must heat the entire house when the system comes on, but a ductless heater permits zone control—and that means you won’t have to waste energy heating empty rooms. This can add up to immense savings on your heating bills each season.

If people with asthma and allergies live in your house, a ductless system can provide them with tremendous relief. Ductwork gathers dust, dirt, pollen, dander, and other allergy and asthma triggers, which the heater then blows out into the indoor air. Getting rid of ductwork also eliminates this major source of air contamination, and you’ll have better indoor air quality in general.
