Ductless Systems vs. Air Conditioners

If you want to keep your home cool during those hot summer months, most people consider adding air conditioning systems or ductless systems to their home. The type of system that you add depends on the structure of your home, how much noise you can tolerate, and whether you want to look at your air conditioner.

Ductless Systems Are Hung on the Wall

Like a traditional air conditioning unit, coolant passes through a condenser to a handler unit that is hung on the wall. However, as the name suggests, the cold air will not be sent through a series of ducts. Instead, it simply comes out of the evaporator and is sent throughout the room. Ductless systems can be ideal for those who don’t have existing ducts in their homes or who don’t have ducts that go directly to a given space.

Ductless Systems Are Usually Quieter

Compared to a traditional air conditioning system, ductless units tend to make less noise. However, this is not the case for all units. Fortunately, the folks at All Temp Co., Inc Air Conditioning, Heating, Plumbing, & Electrical in Harrisburg can make it easy to decide which unit to choose and to install in their homes. We can perform decibel tests to determine which unit will make it easier to sleep, to read a book or otherwise to enjoy your home without sacrificing comfort.

The Ductless Handler Unit Is Visible

With a traditional central air system, the handler is generally attached to the furnace or is otherwise kept hidden in the basement. Since the handler unit with a ductless system is located in the room that you are cooling, you will have to look at it each time you walk into that space. Of course, there are ways that you can disguise the units or otherwise help them to fit into the overall theme of a given space.
