With today’s weather patterns being a bit erratic and temperamental around the world, sometimes you just don’t know whether you need to be cooled down or warmed up! Whatever the weather is doing in your neck of the woods, here in Bethlehem PA, we have a temperate climate with summers reaching highs of 85°F and lows of 10°F in winter. You might well want to think of installing a ductless heating and cooling system.
You could be wondering which HVAC services are going to suit you the best – a ductless one or a central air conditioning or heating unit? Whichever one you choose, it will be a big investment in the comfort of your home. Overall, the ductless air conditioner seems to be more popular than the central cooling system. Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of each.
Pros of a ductless heating and cooling system
Installation: requires only a small hole in the wall; therefore very few problems with air leaking out or with security;
Energy-use: very energy efficient. Having no ducts means that the whole system does not have to start up each time you switch it on and off. It is driven by inverters and automatically works faster or slower according to the conditions;
Operation: very quiet, so at night you can sleep in peace;
Healthy: circulating purified air, you can rest assured that your family’s health is taken into account.
Cost efficient: because it operates room by room, you only need one on at a time, which is the room you are currently using. It does not filter into each room.
Cons of a ductless heating and cooling system
Installation: a central air conditioning system can only be used to cool a home. It would have to be linked to a furnace or heat pump to keep your home comfortable for year-round comfort;
Energy-use: a ductless system uses less energy to cool your home than a central system would use as it is used per room;
Cost efficient: initial outlay costs of installing a ductless system are higher than other central systems, but in the long run, they are cheaper month by month.
