Is a Ductless System Right For Me?

If you are on the market for a new heater this winter, consider going ductless! Ductless systems are a great alternative for homeowners who wish to avoid the drawbacks that we so often associate with ductwork: energy loss, low indoor air quality, and space consumption. Ductless systems offer many benefits, and are a great way to replace two systems for the price of one! If you need cooling or heating in Black Forest, CO, a ductless system might be the way to go.

Our technicians at Robbins Heating & Air Conditioning are well versed in ductless systems, are on hand to help you make an appropriate decision for your home. Below, we have explained how a ductless system works and outlined the many benefits that these systems have to offer. 

What is a Ductless System?

As its name implies, a ductless system, also known as a ductless mini split, is a heat pump system that doesn’t rely on a  network of ducts. Unlike other systems which create their own heat, ductless systems pull existing heat from the surrounding air and use it to heat your home. They can also cool your home by reversing this process.

Ductless systems rely on refrigerant and a reversing valve to both cool and heat your home. By reversing the flow of refrigerant, a ductless system can either absorb heat from the home and move it outside for cooling, or absorb heat from outside the home and move it indoors for heating.

Benefits of a Ductless System

Should you decide to install a ductless system in your home, you’ll be able to take advantage of the numerous benefits that these systems have to offer, such as:


With just the flip of a switch, you can shift your system from heating mode to cooling mode and vice versa, granting you year-round comfort.


When you install a ductless system, you won’t have to worry about scheduling maintenance and repairs for two different systems. Plus, replacing just one system is more cost-effective than having to replace two.

Uncomplicated Installation

Installing ductwork can be costly and complicated, especially if your home is not already set up for it. Ductless systems are far less complicated and invasive to install. In fact, most ductless systems can be up and running in just one day!

Improved IAQ

Faulty ductwork can allow dirt, debris, and other contaminants into your home, reducing overall indoor air quality. Without ductwork, you eliminate this possibility altogether.


Due to their small size and zoning capabilities, ductless systems are extremely energy efficient. In addition, rather than generating heat, ductless systems move heat from one place to another, thus reducing energy consumption. Less energy consumption equals more money in your wallet!
