Whether you’re adding a room, building a new home or looking for ways to improve energy costs in your existing Fairfax County home, a mini-split (also known as ductless) heating system is worth considering.
Better for Individual Rooms or Zones
Since each room or zone has an individual air-handling unit, you can adjust each unit to heat only the rooms or zones you’re using. With conventional heating methods, you must heat the whole house whether or not you’re using all of the rooms or floors. Only paying to heat a few rooms at a time can add up to big energy savings.
The air-handling components of a mini-split system provide a number of placement options, such as being affixed to a wall, suspended from the ceiling, or mounted into drop ceilings. Floor models are also available and they don’t take up much space.
Extending existing ductwork into a new addition can be a big job, often requiring large craters to be cut into existing walls. But with a ductless system, your trusted HVAC technician can connect the outdoor and indoor components via a three-inch hole.
