Can Ductless Heaters Handle a Vermont Winter?

Monday, October 24th, 2016

Yes, they can, but we understand why homeowners may have some reservations. If you are familiar with heat pump technology, then you already know that heat pumps use existing heat in the air outside when heating one’s home. Considering the fact that we experience subzero temperatures on a regular basis, you may not think that heat pumps, including ductless mini splits, could get the job done.

The technology that ductless mini splits use today makes them even more effective than ever before in heating homes. While a bit more electricity may be used when the temperature is extremely low, the ductless mini split can still handle the heating of a home, provided that the system is installed and sized properly. We will guarantee that your ductless mini split heat pump in Woodstock, VT can do the job.
