Pros & Cons of Ductless Systems

Ductless Heating and Cooling Units, The Pros & Cons

Finding the right AC unit for your home can be a difficult choice. There are so many variables to consider from the size of your home, the average temperatures as well as the quality and efficiency of your insulation now and in the foreseeable future. To shed some light on this matter, let’s take a closer look at some of the pros and cons of ductless cooling and heating units before you go out and make a decision.

The positives are always a nice way to start. To begin with, let’s examine some of the positive benefits to the ductless cooling and heating, there are quite a few important advantages. For one, they are considerably quieter than the alternative, window units we often see sticking out the back of a window. A ductless option will not require a space in the window and only need a small hole through the wall that will connect them to the compressor outside. This means that you won’t have to worry about leaks or a lot of noise. They are also more efficient than the alternative which means you will be saving on your monthly energy bills as well.

Cons of Ductless Heating and Cooling Units

Now for the downsides of ductless units. For one, they tend to cost significantly more than the window installed types. While the window installed type of AC unit can be more cost effective, they have their own issues that you should be aware of. It all comes down to the specific needs you have in the area in which you live. If the climate in your area is cooler and more stable, you may consider going with a cheaper option. But, if you are a resident of the Kingston or Thousand Islands area, you may find that investing in the ductless cooling and heating option is an even better alternative to central cooling systems.  A trusted HVAC service and installation company like Furlong HVAC Services can help you weigh out the options and select the best system for your needs and preferences.
