Central heating has been the go-to home heating solution for millions of homeowners, and has quite a lot to recommend it. That doesn’t mean that it is always the best option, though.

A ductless heating system is, as you might imagine, a heating system that doesn’t use ducts. The system itself is actually constructed more like an air conditioner than a heater. It has a minimum of two units, one inside and one outside, which are connected by refrigerant and power lines. During operation, the outside unit evaporates refrigerant to absorb heat from the air. Then it sends the refrigerant inside where it is condensed to release the heat. Think of it as acting like an air conditioner, but in reverse. Ductless heating systems also include a reversing valve, which allows them to change the flow of refrigerant through their systems.
Rather than using ducts, the ductless heating system uses an individual indoor air handler for each room that requires heating. Each of these air handlers is outfitted with its own thermostat, allowing it to operate independently from the rest of the system.
Because ductless systems don’t burn fuel to create heat, they’re far more energy efficient than more traditional combustion–based heating systems. Over time, you can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars in energy savings. Ductless heaters also allow you to modulate how much heat each room receives. Since each room has its own differences in insulation, it’s going to have its own ideal heat settings. A central heating system provides the same amount of heat to all rooms, creating uncomfortable hot and cold spots. With a ductless heating system, you don’t have to worry about that. Finally, the construction of ductless heating systems actually allows them to act as air conditioners as well as heaters.
Installing a ductless system is a bit more complex than installing a central heating system, primarily because most homes are already outfitted to handle centralized heaters. Installing each individual air handler in the rooms you want heated is going to require a bit of alteration to either the walls or ceilings, not to mention proper conduit lining. That’s why you always want to trust us to handle your ductless heating system installation for you.
Just like any other system, ductless heating systems have occasional repair needs. Annual maintenance will lessen the frequency of these problems, but every once in a while they’re still probably going to pop up.
