Ductless vs. Traditional AC

May 24, 2022 | Blog

Do you feel overwhelmed when it comes to the complexity of traditional, central AC units? Are you unsure if going ductless with your air conditioning is the right move for your Meridian home? At Heblon Heating and Air Conditioning, we understand your conflict and are ready to help!

Ductless AC units have become an increasingly popular option for homeowners because they are energy efficient and easy to install. Are they a truly better system when compared to traditional, central AC units- or are they just more convenient? Continue reading to learn more about ductless air conditioning systems and how a traditional unit stacks up against the competition!

How A Ductless AC Unit Works

A ductless system is almost laid out like a spider’s web, smaller ACs intricately connected through wiring instead of air ducts.

The central outdoor unit holds the compressor and condenser parts which are connected to littler versions of ACs interspersed throughout your home. A refrigerant line carries coolant to all of the smaller units, each one separately controlled. This layout enables each room in your home to be set to a different temperature.

Some of the most notable qualities of ductless AC units are that they:

  • Don’t require significant construction or renovation projects for installation
  • Are colossal energy savers
  • Can heat and cool a room individually and provide more accurate comfort
  • Don’t break down often- meaning less maintenance and repair costs

When Traditional AC Is A Better Option

In some situations, however, traditional HVAC systems are a better choice.

For instance, if your home was originally built with ductwork, it may cause less of a hassle and be more cost-effective to keep the system you already have. Though your traditional system would not regulate temperature as accurately as a ductless system, it would still get the job done.

Also, if your home is on the larger side, a ductless system may not be powerful enough to maintain your ideal climate for very long.

Lastly, if you’re looking for a unit that is invisible to the eye – ductless AC might not be for you. Each mini-split unit either attaches to a wall or suspends from a ceiling.

What About Both Systems Together?

Wondering if you can have the best of both worlds? The answer is yes! Both HVAC and ductless systems can sync together to create a temperature\ humidity-controlled haven in your home if you so choose.

Combining both units means you get both the flexibility and accuracy of room-by-room temperature control, while also reaping the benefits of central AC power.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Highly Recommend Using Heblon

My AC wouldn’t turn on so I called Heblon . It was a Sunday and from calling the office to the engineer arriving took about 45 minutes. The engineer was professional and gave me excellent feedback on the issue. Repaired within 45 minutes and couldn’t ask for more. Highly recommend using Heblon, and will definitely be using them from now on.

Good Overall Experience

Both technicians were respectful and courteous. They went above and beyond to explain issues with my unit that would require work in the future. They offered assistance with out a pushy sales pitch. Good overall experience.

I Wouldn’t Trust Anyone Else but Heblon

Jerry is part of the family now. He is always professional, knowledgeable, and able to fix the problem. I really appreciate the great customer service I get from the time I call the office, the prompt response, the timely arrivals, the updates via text message, and the follow up after the job is complete. I wouldn’t trust anyone else but Heblon. My family is grateful for them.
