Blowing out Water in Copper

I remodel kitchens and have to solder occasionally, usually 1/2" copper for wall to deck conversions and so forth.
My question relates to blowing out water through pipes. My compressor has an attachment with a rubber cone. I've been reluctant to do it, but this cone fits perfectly in 1/2" copper. I was thinking I could open up valves throughout the house and simply blow the excess water out the pipes. Is this safe to do?

Thanks, Brian

I don't see a big problem with doing that except I would do it from the water heater. Disconnect hot and cold lines there and blow out with all faucets open. Good luck.
