What Is Ductless Heating?

Ductless heating systems were introduced to the market en masse in the 70s, initially gaining popularity in the Asian and European HVAC markets. Since then, ductless has become one of the most popular HVAC options worldwide, and when you know it’s benefits, you’ll quickly see why. But before we get to that, what exactly is ductless heating?

Part of the answer is of course in the name. Ductless systems indeed operate independently of ductwork, instead utilizing a series of smaller indoor units that are connected to an external unit through an electrical network and small refrigerant tubing. But to really understand what ductless is, we need to go in a bit more detail.

The outdoor unit of a ductless heating system would look somewhat familiar. It’s quite similar to a central system’s outdoor unit. It’s the indoor ones that are the real difference, and take note of the plural. With a ductless system there is a network of small indoor units.

These can be installed throughout the home as you wish, and each can be controlled independently. What do we mean by independently? Well, say you want your bedroom to be a toasty 72 degrees, but don’t mind keeping the living room at 68 degrees. Well, with a ductless system, you can do that! The system is called zoning, and it is one of the real big perks of choosing a ductless heat system.

What Makes Ductless Heating So Good?

  • Zoning. Zoning is somewhat unique to ductless systems, offering exceptionally precise comfort control that allows you to perfect your home’s temperatures. Additionally, this process helps keep energy costs far lower by both allowing you to keep some rooms cooler, and also because zoning shares the HVAC system’s workload, making its job easier overall.
  • Air quality. Utilizing a filtration system unique to ductless, dust and dander are more quickly eliminated from the home, helping you breathe easy when the heat is on.
  • Lack of ducts. How is lacking ducts an advantage? Well, you save on duct installation costs, for one. For two, you don’t need to maintain ductwork, and you can have these systems installed in homes where ducts are unviable.
  • Minimal noise. Ductless heating barely makes a peep—a huge boon to those that are plagued by the low roar of furnace systems in the night.

"Bob Seeger was our technician this time around. His level of professionalism was exceptional - it really stood out! Overall we are very happy that we switched to Signature several years ago!"

-Mark Kenney

"The Signature techs who come out to our house are always top-notch professionals. Very courteous, careful, and thorough. They always provide great explanations of the work that they are doing. I never feel like I am being pressured into unnecessary work or equipment replacement (like I used to feel with Service Experts). Today, Wade was the tech who came out. He was here exactly on time at 8am, and was done within an hour. Great work and another great service experience from Signature! Update 9/27/2016 - Today Bob Seeger came out to service our system in preparation for the winter. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and courtesy. Before he started, we sat down and he clearly explained what he would be doing as part of the maintenance, and we agreed upon the need to replace the filter on the main unit, and also to perform humidifier maintenance as part of the work. After the work was complete he made recommendations for overall system enhancements that we should consider. Signature really has top-notch people working for them, and I continue to be extremely happy that we switched over to them several years ago."

-Mark Kenney

"Bob Seeger was our person to service our furnace and water heater. He showed me a problem with our water heater that could have been a major problem. He was very honest, great and so efficient! He fixed the problem. I am kind of hoping he will be the one to work with in the spring."

-Debbie Kaba

"Always feel confident with the work performed by Danny from Signature."

-William Stolting

"Bob was quite knowledgeable of the type of geothermal system that I have in my house. Before completing the annual maintenance/tune-up that I had requested, he asked relevant questions about my geothermal system (e.g., date of installation, last service, temperature preference, electric usage, etc.). After inspecting and servicing my system, Bob explain service that my system needed now and recommendations that would benefit my system. He explained the options in a non-pressured approach, as well as, the benefit in joining Signature HVAC's service plan which was helpful. Throughout the service visit, Bob was courteous, friendly and respectful. My wife and I were very satisfied and we plan to continue to use Signature HVAC in the future."

-John Schmitt

"Bob was very professional and informative on the heating & air condition job at my house. He is a very nice and caring person! Thank you!"

"Daniel Cross (Signature) completed a thorough and quick fall service on my heating systems. What I liked best about Danny is that he spoke to me as a knowledgeable customer rather than treating me like a clueless homeowner. So refreshing to be treated with respect by an HVAC provider! He had an opportunity to "upsell" me on a service, but was honest and told me that it wasn't valuable in my situation. I would certainly trust him to service my equipment again, and would definitely recommend him to a friend."

-Susan Wentz

"Thanks again for walking me through the process and pointing out what was going on in my system. Mold be gone! Professional and friendly service. Thanks for your help."

-Mia Bosna

"Travis is another courteous, fine professional working for you!"

-John price

"I have used Signature for about 10 years now. They provide excellent service. Bob Seeger was my most recent technician and he was on time, polite, informative, and technically proficient. I highly recommend signature for your HVAC needs. I have geothermal, and they are excellent at this technology."

-Charlie Phillips

"Mike B came out for the biannual check of the upstairs system--we had replaced the downstairs system in June---we are very satisfied. Mike was thorough, very professional, answered all my (sometimes inane) questions and kept the house clean. Good job Mike and thanks."
