Heat Alternatives

Here in New England, it’s no surprise that the weather keeps us guessing. Warm, sunny afternoons quickly turn to extra-chilly evenings weeks before it’s officially time to turn on our heating systems for the season. Bay State Fuel Oil has the solution to keep your home comfortable as the seasons change: the ductless mini-spilt system.

Ductless mini-splits are the latest in home comfort technology. With capabilities to cool and heat your home, they are an affordable, versatile option for homeowners looking to improve year-round home comfort without breaking the bank. Models with a heat pump feature offer an easy heating solution in the fall and spring, and can even help offset your central heating system in the winter months.

The Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER) on a new ductless mini-split system ranges from 13 up to 30.5, compared to the typical ratings of 6 of less for older A/C models. This means, upgrading to a ductless mini-split can significantly lower your energy use and save you money.

Ductless Mini-Splits

Unlike central air conditioning, mini-splits do not require ductwork which can help you save big time on installation costs. The system is made up of an outdoor unit and one or more indoor units that work in tandem to evenly cool or heat your home. Ductless mini-splits can also operate in zones, making it the perfect solution to heating hard-to-reach areas of your home like an addition or attic space.

In the colder months, your ductless mini-split can:

  • Provide shoulder season heating
  • Offset fuel bills during peak winter months
  • Reduce electricity costs
  • Avoid costly ductwork installation
  • Increase home value
  • Improve overall home comfort

When you choose this heat alternative, you can also benefit from:

  • Comparable comfort to central A/C
  • Even, zoned cooling
  • Lower energy costs, year-round!
