Okay, it’s likely that you aren’t as excited about ductless systems as we are—but, you should be!
Ductless systems are perfect for homeowners whose homes lack the space for ductwork or for those who wish to cut down on monthly spending costs!
And if neither of those are reason enough, we can dig even deeper. In fact, we are willing to bet that we can find some reason or other for you to consider going ductless by the end of this blog post.
All you have to do is keep reading to find out more about the benefits of a ductless system. So, what are you waiting for?
First of All, What is a Ductless System?
As the name implies, a ductless system is an HVAC system (namely, a type of heat pump) that does not rely on a network of ducts. Instead, it utilizes one outdoor condenser unit and multiple indoor air handlers to evenly distribute conditioned air throughout the home.
A ductless system works much like a traditional air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But, what sets the ductless system apart is the reversing valve. This valve is used to reverse the flow of the refrigerant, allowing for home heating in addition to cooling! That’s right: a ductless system can both heat and cool your home!
Any More Benefits?
Why, of course! There are many reasons to make the switch to a ductless system! Here are just some of the many benefits:
With just the flip of a switch, your ductless system will be able to make the jump from “heating mode” to “cooling mode,” meaning that with just one system, you can enjoy year-round comfort! What another system can do that?
Installing ductwork can be a difficult and expensive process, depending on the layout of your home. Some homes may not have the space for ductwork, making the ductless system the perfect alternative to a traditional forced-air system. Installing a ductless system is minimally invasive and relatively inexpensive. Plus, installation can be completed in as little as one day!
Why worry about the cost of having to maintain two different HVAC systems? A ductless system eliminates the need for owning both a heater and an air conditioner, making maintenance easier and far less expensive. When you go ductless, you will no longer have to worry about untimely and costly repairs and replacement fees for two different systems!

Perhaps the most important benefit of a ductless system is energy efficiency. Because these systems do not generate their own heat but rather move it from one place to another, they are considered to be far more efficient than other types of HVAC systems. And since these systems do not utilize ducts, they avoid the energy losses associated with leaky ducts (30% of conditioned air can escape through faulty ducts).
