With the warmer weather approaching, many people are already trying to figure out how to get cooler air into their homes. There are so many different air cooling options available: room air conditioners, evaporative cooling units, ductless cooling, central air, and the list goes on. With so many options, how do you know which cooling system is best for your home? At Flotechs Plumbing and Heating, we specialize in the installation, maintenance, and repairs of two historically successful air conditioner options: central air cooling and ductless cooling.
What is Central Air Cooling?
Central air cooling works by forcing cool air through the furnace into your ductwork and carrying that cool air from room-to-room in your home. This system allows the air to be circulated throughout your house at a temperature and rate that you set through the user-friendly thermostat.
Benefits of a Central Air System Include:
- Better air quality (vs. traditional window units)
- Temperature consistency
- Less noise
Regardless of the benefits, central air units do have a downside of an overall higher electric bill, especially if the ductwork is not regularly maintained.
What is Ductless Cooling?
A ductless cooling system uses two units that pull condensed air from outside the home and force the air through coolant before releasing the cooled air inside the home. This system is better for smaller areas and newly-added home additions.
Benefits of a Ductless Cooling System Include:
- Easy to work on (for trained technicians)
- No ductwork to maintain
- Up to 25% more energy-efficient (vs. traditional cooling systems)
Although ductless cooling is one of the most energy-efficient ways to cool a residence, it can be more expensive to set up your system, and some people see the on-wall units as aesthetically unpleasing.
