A ductless AC unit can be a great way to moderate temperatures during the summer months.
My family and I had central heating and AC for a long time.
When it was time to upgrade the cooling system, the Glenview HVAC supplier recommended a ductless cooling option. The contractor felt that the ductless cooling option would be better for our home. It would also give us access to different zones of heating and cooling. The ductless AC has different Air Handlers and they are all connected to a single air compressor. The different air handlers can be set up for corresponding thermostats. Ductless cooling sounded like an interesting and neat idea, but it was very expensive. The Glenview HVAC professional gave us a quote for the machinery and the installation and it was a bit out of our budget. We decided to stick with a traditional air conditioner that runs on a compressor. There is one single zone of cooling. The thermostat is located in the hallway of the house where temperatures are regularly cooler than the rest of the place. This means that the AC unit won’t flip on and off as frequently during the summer. Upgrades to the traditional AC unit were still more than $6,000 and it took all day for the Glenview HVAC supplier to replace the old machine. The first time we used the air conditioner though, it was easy to see that we were dealing with an entirely different type of machine. This one called the house and actually shut off intermittently throughout the day.
