Learning From Home Renovations

Although I am not a professional contractor, I have worked with more than a few during my 40 years as a homeowner. In fact, I have had 3 kitchens, 7 bathrooms, and 2 master bedrooms renovated over the years. Because some of the experiences were a breeze, I found myself addicted to customizing my homes. If you are thinking about getting a little work done on your home, it is a good idea to learn as much about construction as you can. After all, how will you choose a new garage door opener if you aren't familiar with the different types? Understanding the materials and how to choose a contractor might streamline your renovation.

3 Signs A Ductless Heater Is The Best Choice

When many people think about heating systems in homes, they often think about those that push warm air throughout the house through ductwork. However, ductless heaters are also a common choice, and this type of heater is great for providing heat in a home. These are a few signs that this might be the best type of heater for your needs.

1. You're Looking for a Heater for an Add-On 

Have you recently done work to your home and added an addition? If so, you might be looking for a way to heat this new part of your home. Installing a ductless heater in the add-on to your home can be a great choice. Then, you can ensure that the area is kept nice and warm all fall and winter long, and you do not have to worry about adding on to the existing ductwork in your home to make your old system work with the new part of your home. You also do not have to worry about your existing heating system not being large enough for the added space.

2. You're On a Budget

If you are on a budget, you might be worried about how much it will cost to install a heating system in your home. Luckily, though, you do have an option: a ductless heating system. A ductless heating system is more affordable, and you also don't have to worry about all of the labor charges that can go along with a heating system that has ductwork. This is especially true if you are installing in a home that does not have existing ductwork, such as if you are looking for a budget-friendly heating option for a home that you are having built or if you are installing a heater in an older home that used some other type of heat.

3. You Have Allergies

Do you suffer from allergies? If so, it might drive you crazy to know that a heating system can blow dust and other allergens all throughout the home. Luckily, you do not have to worry about dust being moved from one part of the home to the other with a ductless heating system.

As you can see, there are a few situations in which installing a ductless heating system can be the best choice. These are a few signs that you may want to talk to your HVAC contractor about this option for your home.
