Choosing Your Cooling Method

Posted by admin on July 7, 2020


There are countless ways to stay cool during a New York summer, the trick is finding the one that best suits your needs. Do you go with a ductless or central air conditioning system? Skaggs-Walsh can help you decide!

Let’s review the advantages of both types of systems:

Ductless Mini-Split System

Easy Installation

Because there are no ducts involved, the installation of a ductless system is quick and less complex than a central AC system.

Zoned Cooling

Each indoor unit of a ductless system comes with its own remote control, allowing homeowners to cool down only the rooms they need without wasting energy cooling down unoccupied spaces.

Energy Efficiency

Ductless systems are highly efficient, boasting variable speed compressors that allow them to run more consistently without powering on and off all day. Additionally, the lack of ductwork means less opportunities for conditioned air to escape.

Central Air System

Humidity Control

Central air systems are able to remove excess moisture from every room in the home, improving comfort during the summer as well as the indoor air quality, which promotes good health.

Even Coverage

Homeowners enjoy an even temperature throughout the home with a properly installed central air conditioning system.

Energy Efficiency

Similarly to the ductless systems, central air systems also boast high efficiency ratings that can range anywhere from 90% efficiency and more.

When it comes to your comfort and saving on energy costs, there’s no wrong choice. Trust Skaggs-Walsh to make the decision easier with reliable equipment sales, installation and maintenance. Contact us online or call to get started.
