If you’re considering a new air conditioning system, you may wonder whether a central air unit or a ductless system is best for you. The answer really depends on your home and lifestyle. We’ve prepared a brief overview to help make your buying decision a little easier.

Ductless Air Conditioner

Ductless air conditioners provide a cost-effective alternative to conventional central air units that require ductwork. The most common use for ductless units is in buildings with no ductwork or additions to homes and office spaces that are not connected to the ductwork. Ductless systems also provide greater flexibility in temperature zoning, so one room can be cooler than others.  These units are small, quiet, energy-efficient and perfect for use in almost any space.


Central Air Conditioner

A central air conditioning system treats the outside air at a central location and distributes the cooled air through the ductwork in your home or office. Central air units are energy-efficient and can handle cooling large homes and spaces that require consistent cooling. Since outdoor central air units use your existing ductwork, there is no visible unit inside your home. Having central air conditioning in your home will improve its resale value.


Since there is no one-size-fits-all solution, it will be up to you to decide based on your budget and comfort goals. It’s always a good idea to talk with a heating and cooling professional to make sure you’re getting all the facts as they relate to your exact home. Whichever system you’re leaning towards, the professionals at Gas Plus can help you choose the right air conditioning system for you and your family.
