If you are looking for a way to supplement the heat in your Indian Wells, CA, home, you may have considered a space heater that would stay in the commonly used areas of your house. However, there is another option on the market: a ductless HVAC system that may provide more benefits. Before you go with a space heater, consider these advantages of a ductless system.
Most people spend more time in certain areas of their home than others. That means that they need these spaces to be more comfortable in cooler winter temperatures as well as during the heat of a California summer. A space heater just serves to warm your home, while a ductless mini-split can improve the comfort of your most-used spaces all year long.
Depending on the size of the area you’re trying to heat and how many rooms you’re going to use them in, space heaters can be horribly inefficient options. Everyone loves to find a way to save on utility bills, which is a great reason to consider a ductless mini-split instead of a space heater. Space heaters can warm small areas for short periods, but they can increase your electric bill if you expect them to do more than that.
According to Energy.gov, space heaters factor in more than 25,000 house fires and 300 deaths every year. Conversely, ductless min-split systems are just as safe as a traditional heat pump. There is no substitute for peace of mind when keeping your family safe, which is the biggest reason to choose a ductless system over a space heater.
