We Think Ductless Systems Are Awesome—Here’s Why

Surely you’ve heard us go on and on about the furnace, the most popular home heating system on the market today. However, there is another type of heating system that we think is equally awesome. That’s right: we’re talking about ductless systems—these nifty little systems are efficient, effective, take up very little space, and have the ability to provide year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch (don’t worry, more on that later)!

See, there are plenty of reasons to consider a ductless system, and below, we have outlined some of them for you. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more—oh, and of course, remember to call our team for your heating installation in San Antonio, TX.

The Basics

A ductless system is a heating/cooling system that does not rely on a network of ducts. Instead, it utilizes one outdoor condenser unit and multiple indoor air handlers to deliver conditioned air to every inch of your home.

A ductless system works much like an air conditioner, moving heat from one place to another via the flow of refrigerant. However, the ductless system is quite different in that it comes equipped with a reversing valve, which allows homeowners to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system.

Why is this cool? 

Because reversing the flow of refrigerant allows your ductless system to switch from cooling mode to heating mode! Yes, that’s right: this system does it all!

The Benefits

There are various benefits to a ductless system including the following:


A ductless system is able to both heat and cool your home, eliminating the need to own both a traditional heater and air conditioner. With just the flip of a switch, your ductless system will keep you cool and comfortable in the summer and warm and toasty in the winter.


Installing ductwork can be a difficult and expensive process, depending on the layout of your home. Some homes might not have the space for ductwork, so a ductwork system can be a great alternative. Installing a ductless system in minimally invasive, quite affordable, and can be completed in as little as one day.


Because ductless systems do not utilize a network of ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with duct leaks. A breach in a forced-air system’s ducts can account for more than 30% of energy waste. A ductless system can save you a ton of money on your utility bills!
