What’s the Difference between Central Air and Ductless A/C?

Summer is starting to heat up here in New England. Most of us will be spending more time at home this summer, which means it’s a good idea to make sure your house is as comfortable as possible. Are you still depending on your old, inefficient air conditioner? Upgrading to a new high-efficiency A/C will help you save on electricity, reduce the need for repairs, and keep your family comfortable even on the hottest days of the summer.

Central Air Conditioning vs. Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning

When everyone is staying at home, staying cool inside is more important than ever. Which type of air conditioner should you choose, central air or a ductless mini-split system? Both systems provide high-quality cooling but there are several differences that will sway your decision:


Central AC

Central Air Conditioning

  • Provides whole-home cooling
  • Delivers even air distribution
  • Uses ductwork and one outdoor unit
  • Performs to save money and energy

Ductless AC

Ductless Mini-Split A/C

  • Provides whole-home or room-by-room cooling
  • No central ductwork required
  • Uses one outdoor unit and one or more indoor units
  • Can offer supplementary heating
