Cold winters are a natural part of living in Fairfax, VA, but how you stay warm affects more than just the temperature within your home. If you use space heaters, you know some of the disadvantages that come along with them. Below are four reasons to switch from space heaters to a ductless system.
Air Quality Improvement
By design, space heaters only heat a small area, but they don’t take care of anything else that your home needs. Indoor air quality is one aspect space heaters don’t take care of. However, a ductless system has features that improve air quality.
During the summer months, the temperatures outside increase. This makes it pointless to use a space heater within your home as it won’t cool your house. A ductless system makes it easy to switch from heating to cooling when the time is right.
Greater Energy Efficiency
Space heaters aren’t the best when it comes to energy efficiency. You can use them for a few hours a day and not see a change in your electric bill, but it’s the opposite if you use them the entire winter. Compared to space heaters, ductless systems are far more energy-efficient.
Higher Level of Comfort
Those who have experience with space heaters know that space heaters only heat a limited area. Outside that limited area, the rest of your home is cold and uncomfortable. With a ductless system, you can heat your entire home and not just a limited area.
