Ductless vs. Traditional HVAC Systems

June 27, 2023 | Blog

Do you dread Arkansas’ heat during the spring and summer seasons? Are you looking for reliable air conditioning options that can withstand rising temperatures and moisture levels?

Here at Island Airco, we’re devoted to providing you with stellar AC services no matter the season or climate! Each and every one of our technicians are experts at what they do and care about your comfort year-round. Between HVAC maintenance, indoor air quality solutions and furnace installations, we offer 5-star quality services for any issue you might face.

Read on for more information about the two most popular air conditioning methods and our professional mini-split installation services.

Pros And Cons Of A Standard Air Conditioner

Interested in learning more about the benefits and downsides of central air conditioning? Some of the most noticeable advantages include:

  • Broad cooling of large spaces
  • Relatively low cost to install
  • Easily replaced parts and air filters

On the other hand, some downsides include the high utility bills that usually follow installing a central system, as well as the need for ductwork in your home. Most air conditioners must also be paired with a furnace in order to function properly and create a complete heating and cooling network.

If you have additional questions or concerns about standard AC units, don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our friendly team members as soon as possible.

Pros And Cons Of Ductless Mini-Splits

Wondering why ductless mini-splits have become more popular among homeowners looking for long-lasting AC options? Some obvious reasons include:

  • Improved energy efficiency which reduces your electricity bill
  • No dependence on a duct system
  • Much more durable and long-lasting when compared to standard systems

However, some negatives to consider are the high installation costs and the fact that they take up more visual space in your home. Ductless units must be attached to your wall, so if you don’t want your air handlers to be visible, this may not be the best option for you and your family.

How Do I Choose Between Standard And Ductless Cooling?

When it comes to making a decision between installing a ductless mini-split or central AC unit, there are a few factors to consider beforehand. Some essential points include:

  • You and your family’s tolerance for noise
  • The importance of energy efficiency and saving money
  • The size of your home
  • Aesthetics within your household
  • Your desire for the zoned control room-to-room

Each of these issues indicates a clear winner when it comes to the most effective air conditioning system within a certain context. If you’re looking for an AC unit that is quiet, long-lasting, versatile and capable of saving you money — the ductless mini-split is your go-to. If you need an HVAC that won’t take up too much space out in the open and can cool large areas quickly — a central unit is for you.
