Is It Better to Go Ductless?

For homeowners that are deciding on choosing a new air conditioner, the options can be a little overwhelming. There’s just so much new technology, with all sorts of measurements and efficiency levels. A lower SEER rating AC might be cheaper, but it’s going to cost more to run in the long run. Not only that, but now it’s not just as simple as buying a central AC anymore, there are ductless systems in Wellington, FL too!

We understand how this can seem very complicated and overwhelming, but the truth is that with a little help, the decision should be quick and easy. The decision to purchase a certain type of air conditioner should depend mostly on your home, your comfort preferences, and your budget.

Let’s figure out whether a ductless HVAC system would be a good upgrade for your home, or if you should stick with a central AC.

Sticking With a Central AC

Look, there’s an important saying in this industry that we stand by–if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it! If a central air conditioner has been working well for you and your family, then we’re by no means asking you to switch things up. In fact, newer central air conditioning systems, like inverter systems, are more powerful and efficient while using the same technology and systems you’re used to.

If you’re looking to start your AC journey, or maybe you’re replacing your old AC, and you’ve heard from neighbors and friends about how great a central AC is, then don’t hesitate to purchase this one. Our team can walk you through the process and make sure you choose the right unit for your home.

Choosing to Go With a Heat Pump

Heat pumps are basically central AC systems that can also run in reverse. They can cool your home during the summer, but heat it during the winter, running the refrigerant lines in reverse.

Heat pumps are a really good choice for homeowners that want more out of their air conditioning systems. If you’re in the market for a newer heater and air conditioner, then we’d consider investing in a heat pump.

3 Reasons to Invest in a Ductless System

Ductless systems are heat pumps, so the great benefit of heating and cooling your home applies to these systems as well. They’re convenient, powerful, efficient, and most importantly–they don’t require ductwork.

  • Convenience. Ductless mini splits operate with up to four air handlers placed strategically throughout your home. They can each be set to a different temperature setting, so you can have customized cooling or heating in different areas of your home. No more fighting over the thermostat!
  • Efficiency. Ductless HVAC systems are incredibly efficiently, mostly because air can’t leak through the air ducts. Keep this in mind when investing in a new unit.
  • No ducts! Have you been nervous about investing in air conditioning because air duct installation can cost a fortune? Well, let’s just avoid the ductwork entirely with a ductless mini split system!
