Ductless HVAC System vs. Traditional AC System:
- Ductwork – If your home is already outfitted with a duct system, central air conditioning is the more cost-effective choice. With no access to ductwork, whether for a single room or the entire residence, a ductless system offers a more non-invasive, space-saving, cost-saving alternative. The installation of a ductless split system can typically be handled in a single day, requires no renovation, and creates no mess.
- Aesthetics – From the inside of the home, central air conditioning is invisible. A ductless system operates by way of a streamlined air handler mounted on the wall or a vent in the ceiling. While you’re going to notice it, modern design has led to low-profile and stylish models.
- Size of the home – For a larger home, a ductless system may lack the power to keep up with demand. You may require more air handlers than a single outdoor compressor can manage. If the total space is more than 2,000 square feet, central air systems provide better efficiency.
- Operational sounds – Ductless systems tend to be quieter than central air. You can check the decibels to determine the noise level of any unit you’re considering. Modern engineering has led to whisper-quiet opportunities.
- Budget – Expect central AC to be more expensive. There is, however, a huge range in price for both types of systems. If you require multiple indoor units and choose a top-of-the-line model, the cost of a top-quality ductless air conditioner or heat pump increases.
- Energy efficiency – The efficiency of the air conditioner or ductless unit depends on a lot of factors. The integrity of ductwork, from proper design to effective sealing, greatly affects the performance of central air conditioning. The installation, from the amount of refrigerant to sizing and a level surface for the outdoor unit, also plays a part. Ductless systems offer higher potential efficiency, but it’s always best to check the SEER.
- Zone control – While zoned control is available with either central or ductless, the former is less expensive. Each air handler features an independent thermostat, allowing customized temperature settings for each room. You’re able to target those rooms that feel overheated or chilly, avoid maintaining unoccupied areas at the perfect comfort level and accommodate the temperature preference of family members.
- Heating – With ductless, you have your choice between strictly air conditioning and heat pumps that combine both heating and cooling capability. When the weather turns chilly, the ductless heat pump literally reverses operation to provide heat. Since ductless heat pumps are wonderfully energy efficient, they are a cost-effective opportunity to reduce the workload of the furnace.
