To Duct or Not to Duct: Your Air Conditioning Options

- 9:43 am - May 12th, 2016

So you’ve decide to get a new air conditioner, but in your search for a replacement, you may be asking yourself which is best for you: ductless or central air? It can be a tricky question, but not to worry – Harris Comfort offers both and can help you select the best unit for your home cooling needs.

Why Ductless?

While the word “ductless” may conjure up images of bulky and obtrusive wall and window units, today’s ductless air conditioners are practically as inconspicuous as standard central air systems. Ductless systems are also more efficient than their ducted counterparts of the same SEER rating. Many duct networks are old, leaky or poorly designed, and no matter how sophisticated the central air system, it will give you slightly less-than-perfect efficiency because of these structural imperfections. If your home doesn’t have duct systems at all, then a ductless system is the choice for you. With easy installation and room-to-room control, the unbeatable convenience speaks for itself. Harris Comfort provides a wide variety of high-quality, easy-to-install ductless systems from Mitsubishi Electric.

Why Central Air?

If you currently use a central air conditioner and your home’s duct system is relatively new and in good shape, the best solution may be to invest in a new central air conditioner. If you’re building a home, you have the advantage of installing a new structurally sound duct network to serve a new central air conditioner to the fullest. We offer a variety of Carrier central air conditioning systems, from the top-end Infinity® series capable of 21 SEER, to the affordable Comfort™ series.
