Are you in the market for a cooling system and just can’t decide which one works for you? Fortunately, you have a couple of options to consider to save money on the next cooling unit you choose.

Window Units

Window units have both pros and cons that will help you to determine if this system is best for you. Pros include:

  • Low price, cheaper than most other units
  • Portability
  • Easy installation

Here are some of the cons of the traditional window unit:

  • Costly to run throughout the hot season
  • Noisy
  • Distorts the beauty of your home by obstructing your window view

Because the unit sits inside the window, it also prevents natural light from entering into your home. And in most cases this unit allows outside air to leak into the home, causing a loss of energy.

Ductless Mini-Split

For a more cooling efficient option, the ductless mini-split is your best choice. This type of unit is more popular because of its cooling efficiency. Most of these models include a very sleek design which makes for a more modern look that complements your home.

The ductless mini-split costs more than a traditional window unit and requires professional installation, but there are many pros to consider, including:

  • Efficiency
  • Quiet operation
  • Beautiful design
  • Versatility (Ductless HVAC systems double as excellent heaters)
