Ductless vs Central Air Conditioner: Which One Do You Need?

Advantages & Dis-advantages of Ductless and Central Air Conditioner

Traditional air-conditioning systems provide complete cooling for your entire house. These systems allow you to add components such as air purifiers and humidifiers that can help keep the air in your home fresh and clean. On the other hand, traditional systems can have hot or cold spots, even when you’ve purchased the size recommended for your home. They also have high operating costs because of the amount of electricity they require.

Ductless systems offer flexible placement and high efficiency, but some people don’t like the aesthetics of a visible mounted object that’s relatively expensive and requires more maintenance than central air.

So how do you decide which is best for your situation?

Many people choose traditional whole-house heating and cooling, but there are situations where ductless can make more sense.  For example, if you add space to your home, such as a bonus room, garage apartment, etc., and your current HVAC isn’t sufficient, instead of putting in a new system, you can simply add a ductless in the new space.

Ductless creates independent temperature zones in different rooms, which is perfect if members of your family constantly fight over the thermostat.

Retirees often decide they don’t want to heat and cool rooms they no longer use. Instead of shutting the vents in those rooms, a better solution is a ductless system in the room(s) they spend the most time in and then set the HVAC thermostat low enough to minimize the amount of time it runs.
