Keeping your home warm is a priority through the winter. Are you using a space heater to heat a room in your home? A ductless HVAC system is a much better purchase. Here are a few reasons to choose a ductless HVAC system over a space heater in George West, TX:
Indoor Air Quality
Ductless HVAC systems have multiple features meant to purify and cleanse the air they push into your environment, such as washable air filters. Space heaters have no features to improve air quality. Their only function is to heat a specific area.
Space heaters aren’t energy efficient, especially if you plan on using a few of them to keep multiple rooms warm during the winter. Ductless mini-splits are more efficient due to features such as the ability to program the system to start and stop automatically. As a result, you’ll only operate them when needed.
A ductless HVAC system is much safer than a space heater because space heaters are infamous for being fire hazards. Using a space heater could potentially put your family at risk, so if safety is a priority, you should invest in a ductless system.
While the space heater is only able to heat a limited space at a time, a ductless system has the ability to warm an entire room. Ductless HVAC systems can also cool your home, while space heaters can only warm it. This dual ability makes these units the best choice for homeowners searching for an all-in-one HVAC solution.
Ductless HVAC systems are more versatile, flexible and have a larger variety of features than space heaters. Contact us at Bodine-Scott Air Conditioning Co. to install a ductless HVAC system in your home. We’ll make sure it operates at peak efficiency and maximizes comfort.
