If you use a space heater, the device’s portability makes supplementing the heat in your home easy. An easier, safer and more efficient way to heat your living space is with a ductless HVAC system. Below are five reasons you should consider a ductless HVAC system instead of a space heater in Huntersville, NC, this winter.
A space heater provides only a small amount of heat in a limited area. As a result, you have to stay close to the space heater to stay warm. A ductless HVAC system keeps the entire room warm. A multi-zone ductless unit can control the temperature in multiple rooms individually.
Space heaters only heat a few square feet of space for a short period, which causes your utility bill to rise, especially if you use several at once. However, designed for efficiency, a ductless HVAC system has an HSPF rating of 10 and above.
Indoor Air Quality
Space heaters are only designed to heat and can’t take care of indoor air quality issues. They can actually make air quality worse. A ductless HVAC system has washable filters that remove pet dander, pollen, dust and other particles that impact indoor air quality.
Space heaters are fire hazards, causing more than 25,000 house fires and 300 deaths each year. In contrast, ductless heat pumps are far safer than space heaters, and you don’t have to worry about overloaded electrical circuits or your pets and children being near them by themselves.
