Ductless mini split systems vs Window AC units.
It’s a fact, in our climate pretty much every home needs air conditioning to help you keep your cool during the summer months. However, central AC may not be an option if you live in a home with no ductwork or a rental property. So, you have
to choose between window AC units and ductless (mini-split) AC systems.
Before making the decision on which is the best solution for you and your needs, it pays to get these facts about each one:
Ductless AC systems
- Can cool multiple rooms and you can add another outside evaporator to cool more rooms.
- More pleasing to the eye and for room décor, as systems can be attached to a wall or suspended from the ceiling.
- Remote control devices for easier use.
- Your home’s curb appeal is maintained without unsightly window units.
- Very quiet compared to window AC units.
- Less threat of break-ins as only a small hole is required that’s impossible for anyone to enter.
- Can be up to twice the price of window units but longer-term energy savings help recoup the cost faster.
- Cool living spaces more quickly.
- More energy efficient than window AC units.
- Must be installed by qualified AC technicians.
Window AC units
- Cheaper than ductless and central air conditioning systems.
- Easy to install, you can normally do it yourself or with little help.
- Are portable and can be moved from room to room as required.
- Tend to be noisier than other AC solutions.
- They can lead to a lack of security as burglars could enter your home through the window with the AC unit.
- Since they occupy a window, they lower the natural light in your home.
- Tend to not be attractive both viewed from inside or outside the home.
- Don’t normally come with a service plan option, it’s normally “you break it, you pay for it”.
