Are Mini-Split Units Good for Heating Purposes?

By now just about everyone has heard about mini-split heat pumps, but Climate Control Company still runs into some stereotypes. It seems like many people we talk with think of them only as mini-split air conditioners. What those people need to know is Mitsubishi mini-splits, like the ones Climate Control features, are also a wonderful choice for home heating in Glenwood Springs, Aspen, and Vail, CO.

Let’s Take a Moment to Review

Remember, mini-splits are much different than central systems that also use a heat pump. A mini-split system has multiple wall-mounted air handlers delivering heated air to specific rooms or areas of the home. There is no ductwork for the four or more air handlers, each with its own thermostat, which can be connected to a single outdoor compressor.

Undeserved Bad Reputation

When it comes to home heating in Glenwood Springs, Aspen, and Vail, CO, it’s possible there is still some skepticism. Early generation heat pumps (20 or 25 years ago) were not very good at home heating during cold weather. That has now changed and heat pump technology is able to provide comfortable home heating, even with outside temperatures at zero or below.

Also Worth Considering

Mini-splits offer many advantages that should be considered when it comes to heating your home:

  • Most efficient form of electric heat…and truthfully, it’s not even close. In other words, if you don’t have natural gas service available, heat pumps will give you the biggest heating bang for your buck.
  • Once you go ductless, you’ll never go back…Because there are no ducts, mini-splits are easier and cheaper to install. These systems are perfect for any location where installing ductwork is difficult and expensive.
  • Heat pump technology + ductless = even greater savings…because there is no ductwork, there are no holes or leaks to allow the heated air to escape. Instead, all that conditioned air is delivered directly to the living areas in the home.
