4 Ways Ductless Systems Are Better Than Space Heaters

If it’s been hard to keep your home warm this winter, you might think a good solution is a space heater. Here are four reasons ductless systems are better than space heaters in your Ridgeland, MS, home:

Ductless Systems Are Safer

Space heaters have quite the reputation for being fire hazards. If set too close to furniture or curtains, they can catch these items on fire. A ductless system doesn’t heat up like space heaters and gets installed in a manner that doesn’t put them in proximity to potential fire hazards.

If you have children or pets, you should also avoid space heaters. Even if you tell your children not to play near space heaters, accidents happen and can result in serious burns.

They’re More Energy Efficient

Where one space heater exists, there’s likely to be several more. The more space heaters you have, the more electricity you use because they run non-stop until unplugged or manually turned off. You can program ductless systems to cycle on and off, making them much more energy-efficient to heat your residence this winter.

Ductless Systems Make Breathing Easier

Space heaters don’t contribute to cleaner air, but ductless mini-splits do. These systems don’t require ductwork to operate, and as you might know, ducts can get quite dirty after years of usage. If your family has respiratory issues like asthma or allergies, installing a ductless system is a great way to improve indoor air quality — not only this winter, but year-round.

Use the Ductless System All Year

When spending your hard-earned money to heat or cool your home, you want to consider all the appliance’s features. Purchasing multiple space heaters can cost a lot of money, but you can’t use them to cool down in the summer. Ductless systems also have cooling capabilities, making them a better bang for your buck.
