There is no such thing as a “typical” home in Boston, as each and every one has its own unique flair. While this has its benefits, it can also result in a few potential drawbacks.

For example, many homes in Boston are notoriously difficult to heat. This is particularly true of those with a third floor, attic conversion, or finished basement.

You want to use every square foot of space that’s available to you, but only if you can do so in comfort.

Fortunately, despite the heating challenges that often exist, there’s a solution to every problem. And in many cases, that solution is the installation of a high efficiency mini split heat pump.

Here are some of the many benefits of a ductless system in a home that’s difficult to heat:

1. Flexibility

It doesn’t matter where the space is located or how big it is, with a ductless heating system you can take care of your problem once and for all.

In addition to a small outdoor unit, you can setup indoor units – without ductwork – to heat any space that needs it.

This is in contrast to a traditional HVAC system in which running ductwork to an existing or new room would cost a lot of money, not to mention causing a giant mess.

2. Opportunity to Save Money

Many people forgo the necessary heat in their third floor, attic, or basement because they don’t want to take on the financial cost of making it right.

While there’s a financial component to every home improvement project, there are also ways to cut costs.

With a ductless heating system, you’re able to cut costs when compared to a traditional setup, all without giving up anything in regards to functionality and performance.

Furthermore, these systems are known to be extremely efficient, which saves you money on the monthly cost of heating and cooling your home

From a financial perspective, a ductless heating system is almost always the best option.

3. Ability to Add to it as Necessary

Maybe you start out by adding a ductless mini split in your third floor attic conversion. From there, you realize that it was a good choice, so you look into doing the same in your finished basement.

Again, thanks to a high level of flexibility, you don’t have to renovate a portion of your home to expand your system. As long as your outdoor unit can handle it, all you have to do is add an indoor unit in the room that needs heat.[i]

As a Boston homeowner, you’re not alone if you’re struggling to keep some of your home warm during the colder months.

If you’re finally ready to take action, a ductless heating system is the way to go. It’s flexible, cost efficient, and easy to install.
