Is Your Home Equipped with a Ductwork?
This is the most important factor that affects whether you should install a central or ductless air conditioner. A central AC system is more cost-effective if the ductwork is already installed in your home.
A ductless system in is better in certain conditions. It is more economical when there is no ductwork set up at your home, and you are installing a new AC system. There is less construction process involved with its Installation. Only a 3-inch opening in the wall is needed to take its cable to the other side and connect its indoor part to its outdoor part. This system works well for a new addition housing that is not connected to the existing ductwork.
Contact FurnaceUSA for an accurate, no obligation and no gimmicks estimate and take the guesswork out of choosing a ductless air conditioner.
Which Air Conditioner System Design Is Better for Your Home?
Most parts of a central air conditioner remain invisible in the indoor areas. In case of a ductless system, there is an indoor part and an outdoor part. Manufacturers have devised various innovative designs to make the indoor part of a ductless air conditioner look stylish. A central AC system is a better choice if you do not like a big part of your air conditioner remain visible in the room at all times. People have found many innovative ways to disguise their indoor part of the ductless AC system.
Your Home Size
A ductless system lacks the power to cool multiple rooms of a large home. The central air conditioning system is suitable for 2000-2500 square feet or larger area homes. It is highly efficient in cooling such large homes. Go for the ductless air conditioner if your home area is less than 2000 square feet.
Your Noise Sensitivity
A ductless system is generally quieter compared to the central air conditioning system. However, some ductless ACs are loud. Consult an expert AC technician if you want to install a less noisy air conditioner at your home.
Your Air Conditioning Budget
The price of a ductless air conditioner starts at a few thousand dollars. The cost increases based on the cooling power of the air conditioner. The systems with more advanced features will cost more. You have to calculate the total cost of all ductless systems needed to cool multiple rooms of your home. The central air conditioning system is more expensive compared to the ductless AC models of the same category. At the same time, the high efficiency of a central AC can make it more cost-effective in certain conditions, such as when it is used for a large home.
While everyone wants the maximum energy efficiency, it is not that easy to answer this question. A central air conditioner offers the highest efficiency, but it is efficient only when you use it for a large home. The ductwork must be installed properly by trained and expert technicians, or it will fail to deliver the promised efficiency. If the piping is not sealed properly or it has more twists than necessary, your central AC system will have lower efficiency. Only expert AC technicians can ensure the refrigerant is maintained at the right level. The outdoor unit should be placed at a level surface, and the air handler should be matched to the system. There are many other things that ensure higher efficiency of an AC system.
A zoning setup works well if different levels of cooling are needed in different rooms. Everyone does not want or require the same level of cooling. A room may be hotter than the other rooms due to certain reasons like directly facing the sunlight or the presence of heat emitting devices. Such rooms require more cooling. Ductless can offer better zone-control when you just want one part of your home heated. For example, if it's more important for your bedroom to be heated, and less important for the kitchen to be, a ductless system can pump all the air conditioning to the bedroom.
