Central AC or Ductless AC - which is best for your home?

The choice between a ductless mini-split system and a traditional central air conditioning system can be difficult for homeowners. Let's look at the key differences between the two options.

Ductless Mini-Split System

An outdoor compressor and an indoor air-handling unit are the two main components of a ductless mini-split system. A conduit connects the outdoor and indoor units.


It essentially maintains a constant temperature in your room, as opposed to an air conditioner that cycles on and off throughout the day. In the winter, the system absorbs heat from the outside air and transports it indoors to heat your home as well.


Despite the fact that a ductless mini-split can save you money in the long run, the initial installation costs can be high. Finding qualified, professional installers may be difficult. Your unit may run less efficiently because of incorrect sizing or placement.

Central Air Conditioning Systems

A central air conditioning system treats air in a central location before distributing it to and from rooms via one or more fans and a network of ducts.


Newer models provide efficient, cool, and comfortable temperatures, as well as lower humidity. The system is also virtually invisible, and it increases the value of your home.


As with the mini-split system, if the unit is not properly sized, you may face cost issues. Otherwise, Central AC’s prices are way less than a Ductless AC

To summarise, both systems have advantages and disadvantages, but Central AC has an edge in certain areas. If you are considering purchasing one for your home, make sure it is a VRV System.

VRV System

VRV is a technology that changes the refrigerant volume in a system to meet the exact needs of a building. A system requires only a small amount of energy to maintain set temperatures and to ensure that it automatically shuts off when no residents are sensed in a room.
