(NAPSI)—Here’s hot news for homeowners: Although space heating accounts for more than 40 percent of your energy consumption, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, your heating bills don’t have to get you hot under the collar.
Why Get In The Zone
You can curtail energy consumption without sacrificing your comfort with the help of ductless zoning systems. These can provide heating and cooling without a network of air ducts. Also referred to as split zoning, a ductless system includes an outdoor unit connected to one or more indoor air handlers connected by refrigerant lines and wiring. These systems provide individual comfort control and operate at efficiency levels far above traditional central air systems. Because there’s an indoor unit in each zone, homeowners can easily adjust the climate in each room for optimal energy savings.
Accessories let you monitor and operate the system remotely through Internet-enabled smart devices and use timer functions to selectively cool and heat specific zones as needed. Rather than keeping each floor or your entire house at one set temperature, you can customize your home to meet your comfort needs.
As TV personality and New York interior designer Cortney Novogratz-who has used ductless zoning technology in her own home for years to fit its unique heating needs-explains: “This system gives us the ability to adjust heat from room to room depending upon the amount of sun (or not) and the room temperature preferences of my kids. It gives us ultimate control over our own space.”
Infrequently used guest bedrooms, bonus rooms and offices can be kept at lower temperatures while energy use is concentrated where families spend most of their time, such as the kitchen, living room and bedrooms.
“My kids’ rooms can be at a temperature where they’re comfortable, while the rest of the house might be set at another temperature,” adds Novogratz. “One of the reasons my husband and I have Mitsubishi Electric systems in our home is that they really give us control over our environment.”
A ductless zoning system from Mitsubishi Electric, America’s No. 1 brand of ductless cooling and heating solutions, lets you tailor your home’s climate to meet your unique requirements. The systems will keep your house warm and comfortable, even in extremely cold temperatures, while still operating efficiently.
