The Best Alternatives to Window A/C Units

The days are really starting to heat up in New England. Is your old, clunky window air conditioner cutting it and keeping you cool? We’re guessing no! Believe it or not, air conditioners are a must for New England homes. When the dog days of summer roll around, nothing is worse than being inside a hot and humid home. If your window air conditioning unit isn’t getting the job done and is costing you more in energy bills than it is worth, you have other options!

A Basic Rundown of Air Conditioner Types

Homeowners have long debated about whether central or ductless air conditioning is the better option for a home. When it comes down to it, you’re getting a great deal with either type of A/C—it all depends on what you already have in your home.

Benefits of Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning

Ductless A/C units are sleek in design and highly efficient. If you don’t have ductwork in your home, there’s no need to fret. These units don’t require any ductwork. Plus, these A/Cs are also efficient heat pumps. Ductless mini-splits are ultra convenient because they can cool in the summer months and heat in the cooler months, and they come with plenty of benefits.

Advantages of Central Air Conditioning

Central A/Cs are perfect for homes that already have ductwork in place from the current heating system configuration. The best part is that your installation could be half the cost compared to a home that doesn’t have ductwork. Central air conditioners also come with a number of advantages.

  • Enjoy even cooling distribution throughout your entire home
  • Unobtrusive vents won’t conflict with your interior décor or use of space (unlike conventional wall or window units)
  • Achieve maximum control of how much your cooling system operates with a compatible programmable thermostat
  • Choose among ENERGY STAR–rated models!
