At first, window units may seem appealing. They are inexpensive, and they do not require the installation of ductwork. However, these units offer far more disadvantages than they do advantages. They do not provide the necessary comfort to get through the hot or cold outdoor temperatures. They are extremely noisy, and they cost a lot to run. They block the window, so a homeowner is unable to open the window or use natural sunlight once the unit is in place. Even worse, they usually end up leaking and creating humidity issues. This aspect is detrimental to your health since it can create an ideal environment for mold and other indoor air pollutants. Window AC units can even damage your property.
Ductless AC systems, on the other hand, provide a high level of energy efficiency. In fact, many meet the government’s ENERGY STAR® Qualified standards. You won’t have to cool unused rooms or deal with bulky ductwork. They are whisper-quiet while operating. Also, they can also create a pleasant, comfortable environment that is necessary to get through the hot summer weather.
