When you live in Boston, you’re sure to think about your heating system during the late fall and winter months.

Maybe you have concerns about its efficiency or ability to make it through another winter. Or maybe you’re sick and tired of paying loads of money to heat your home.

If you’re ready for an upgrade that can save you money over the long run, a ductless heating system may be just what you’re looking for.

In addition to its ability to reduce heating costs by up to 60 percent, there are other benefits of installing a ductless system:

1. Flexibility

A traditional HVAC system with an indoor furnace, outdoor air conditioner, and ductwork is anything but flexible. In fact, if you need to add to your system, such as in the event of an addition to your home, it’ll complicate construction while adding another large expense to your bill.

A ductless heating system is extremely flexible, as it consists of a small outdoor unit accompanied by several indoor units (of which you can add to at any time). Best yet, since there’s no ductwork, all you need is electricity and a place to mount the indoor units.

It doesn’t matter if you’re remodeling a new home or building from scratch, a ductless heating system gives you the flexibility you need.

2. Improved Indoor Air Quality

You have full control over everything that happens in your home, so it’s your responsibility to take steps to improve indoor air quality.[i]

A traditional HVAC system has ducts that require regular maintenance and cleaning. Neglecting to do so will result in the build-up of dust, debris, and allergens, which are then circulated throughout your home.

A ductless heating system doesn’t use ducts, so this is never a concern. Even better is the fact that these systems typically provide multi-stage filtration designed to reduce dust, allergens, and bacteria inside your home.

3. Quiet Operation

Is there anything more annoying than hearing your furnace kick on and off all day long? What about those ducts that pop every time hot air flows through them?

A ductless heating system is designed to be extremely quiet, ensuring that it never interferes with your day to day life.[ii]

Bonus benefit: interior units can be mounted almost anywhere in any room. And when you choose the perfect location, such as above a window, they’re less visible, which improves the aesthetics of your room. This is in stark contrast to vents on the floor and/or wall or radiators.
