It’s not uncommon that a homeowner doesn’t choose the air conditioner that they’re currently using. A lot of us just end up using the air conditioner that came with the home when we bought it. It’s not until it’s time to replace the current air conditioner that we get the chance to reassess our current system and how it’s working for our home. If it’s time to replace your air conditioner, you have two main options: ductless and central air conditioning. Here’s how to know which one is best for your home.
What Is Central Air Conditioning?
The most popular choice in Ontario is central air conditioning. This option has been available for decades and it’s what is most likely what’s in your home right now. Central air conditioning works alongside your furnace to cool and distribute conditioned air throughout your home by using ductwork and registers throughout the house. If your home is already fitted with ductwork then central air conditioning is most likely the best choice for your home.
What Is Ductless Air Conditioning?
While perhaps not as well-known or well-used as central air conditioners, a ductless air conditioner is just as valid of a choice for your home. A ductless air conditioner doesn’t need pre-existing ductwork in the home to function, instead, it uses one external unit and anywhere from one to several internal units that are installed with minimal invasion of your home. Each internal unit can be individually controlled to create differently climatized rooms throughout the home.
Which Option Is Best For Your Home
When it comes to choosing the right air conditioner, consult with a reputable company with a solid background and history in your community. They can help you decide which system better serves your home and your family. If your house has pre-existing ductwork, then it may be the best option to choose a central air conditioner. If your home doesn’t have ductwork, or you wish to be able to have better climate control over the rooms in your home, then a ductless system may be the best choice for you.
