Whether you’re checking out air conditioning units for an HVAC upgrade next year or are planning to get a new heater this fall in preparation for winter, you’ve probably heard of both ducted and ductless HVAC systems. Each have their pros and cons, so one system isn’t necessarily better than the other. Rather, what’s right for you will depend on which one addresses your needs the best.
So which should you choose? Here’s a comparison from M & M Heating & Air Conditioning Service Co. to help you get started:
When a Ducted System Makes Sense
Ducted systems are great if you’re looking for whole-home heating and air conditioning at one cost. If you already have a ducted system, choosing the same for your upgrade will help you cut back on installation costs because you already have ductwork in place. Often, air ducts are a combination of insulated coiled tubes and sheet metal. Central air conditioning units, furnaces and heat pumps are compatible with ducted systems.
When to Get a Ductless System
Ductless systems are ideal if you’re looking to better control temperatures in individual rooms or have a smaller property where there’s no room for additional ductwork. If you opt for a ductless system, you have to specifically use a ductless mini-split system.
