Should You Go Ductless this Winter?


Here in Plano, temperatures can remain relatively mild for the winter. Our summers can be brutal, and even though our winters are a bit chilly, they’re not devastating. That being said, trying to live comfortably without a reliable heater in our area is going to leave you disappointed.

That’s why we talk about ductless heaters so much. They’re a flexible type of heater that can provide comfortable and affordable heating through mild winters, while also doubling up as a cooling solution in the summer. Ductless heating systems in Plano, TX are all the rage, and we’d like to explain a little bit of the science behind why.

So, if you’re interested in the most flexible, efficient, and hottest heating system on the market—then saddle up, cowboy, and take a gander at what we’ve got to say!

A Flexible Solution

Whether you’re hesitant about having ductwork installed in your old house or if you’re looking into both heating and cooling options, ductless heating can be a great solution. Ductless heaters are versatile because they don’t require ductwork, they can both heat and cool your home, and they’re highly efficient. It’s no secret that these systems can provide year-round comfort for folks in our area.


You’re probably asking yourself, “How is this heater more efficient than my reliable, old furnace?” Well, it can be! Ductless heating systems rely on refrigerant in the same way that an air conditioner does, except in reverse. By cycling refrigerant that constantly evaporates into a gas and condenses into a liquid, your heater can draw in heat from outside your home and move it to the inside.

This is an incredibly efficient process because it doesn’t create any heat as it were; instead, ductless heat pumps transfer heat from one place to another, which is way less energy-intensive than the alternative. This means that ductless heating systems run using less energy than many conventional heating systems.

Customizable Comfort

Since ductless systems function with the use of air handlers (since there are no ducts to send air through vents), that means that each air handler can operate at a different temperature. You can keep your kitchen a little bit cooler during the winter, in case you’re cooking a Thanksgiving turkey this week, but keep your bedroom warmer for increased comfort.

This also works for saving money, since you won’t need to open a window if one area of your home is hotter than what you’d like. Instead of turning the temperature down throughout the entire house, you can customize your comfort by lowering the temperature on one of your air handlers!

Easy Installation

Installing a furnace with a whole network of air ducts to ventilate your house can be a nightmare. Many homeowners then have to worry about installing an air conditioner six months later!

With a ductless system, installation is fast and easy. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can install it yourself—you’re absolutely going to need the assistance of a professional team of Plano HVAC technicians on your side. Well, what are you waiting for?
