Central vs. Ductless Air Conditioning


The warm weather is quickly approaching – so you need to have the right air conditioning system installed before our summer schedules fill up! We’re here to make the decision easier by breaking down the benefits of both types of air conditioning equipment – which system suits your home best?

Central Air Conditioning

Central air conditioning systems are ideal for homes with a lot of space, since the equipment needed to run the system is relatively large – although they can be adapted to any size home. Central systems also require ductwork to be installed inside the walls and ceilings of a home, which again is why it’s best to have enough space to house the whole system. A central air conditioner is controlled from one thermostat, and provides even cool temperatures throughout the house, virtually eliminating warm spots and keeping every room at the perfect comfort level.

Ductless Mini-Splits

Ductless mini-split air conditioning systems are perfect fits for smaller homes, apartments, condos and even home additions where ductwork isn’t accessible. As the name implies, they don’t require ductwork and so the installation takes less time than that of a central air conditioning system. These systems consist of an outdoor condenser and multiple indoor units that can provide different levels of comfort throughout the home. Each indoor unit can be controlled separately, allowing for individual comfort zones throughout the home, and reducing energy costs by not cooling unoccupied rooms.
