Comparing ductless and central air conditioners
The world of HVAC can be a confusing place for first time buyers, especially when trying to differentiate the two main types of air conditioning systems – ductless and central.
Luckily A1 is here to help! Here is a rundown of the major differences between the two systems.
Central Air Conditioners
This system is split into two units: the condensing unit and the evaporative unit. Warm air is cooled through the evaporator coil and then distributed throughout the house via the ductwork and vents.
- Cheaper than ductless air conditioner up front
- Ability to have all rooms in your home cooled uniformly
- More effective for larger homes
Ductless Air Conditioners (Otherwise known as Split Air Conditioners)
This system is also split into two units: the evaporative unit and the condensing unit. Instead of using ductwork to distribute air throughout the house like a central air conditioner would do, a ductless system utilizes individual units throughout the home.
- Easy installation, no ductwork
- Ability to cool specific areas in your home (each room has a thermostat)
- Saves you money on your energy bill as there is no cooled air lost in the ductwork
