When it comes to cooling your home, you’ll likely have a few options. Many homeowners have a central air conditioning system, but this type of cooling system can be expensive to run, especially if you have a large home to keep cool. Additionally, there can be a great deal of variance between the temperature of each room. You might have one room that is too warm, and another room that is too cold. It’s hard to get each room the right temperature.
What Are The Best Small Room AC Solutions?
Fortunately, there are other air conditioning solutions that will help you achieve the right balance for maximum comfort. For example, many homeowners enjoy the comfort and convenience of a ductless air conditioner. A ductless system offers energy efficiency as well as the ability to easily regulate the temperature, even in a small room. Sure, you could use a window A/C unit, but window units are certainly not very energy efficient. A window air conditioner typically costs much more to operate than a ductless system.
Problems With Window AC Units
Additionally, because, by design, the window AC must be mounted in a window, you not only lose the visual appeal of being able to look out the window without any encumbrances, but you also create a security risk that is readily identifiable by thieves, and can easily be breached. A ductless system offers better security and the indoor and outdoor components can be installed by an HVAC contractor in locations that are out of the way.
Loss Of Natural Light
If you want to be able to open the window or let some light into your room, a window unit will be a problem. While these window AC units are meant to be removable, it’s not as easy as some people think. This type of cooling unit can be heavy, and there’s a lot of work involved to move it. However, when you choose a ductless AC, you never have to worry about blocking the natural light flowing into your home. Your window is always free to be opened when you want to let in a fresh breeze.
A Window Unit Can Only Cool One Room
There’s no doubt, a window air conditioner can certainly cool a small room. However, that’s about all it can do. You won’t be able to cool multiple rooms with a window AC, but you can with a ductless system. In fact, a ductless AC system can be set up to provide cooling for different zones. This lets you set each zone to the temperature you desire. There’s no worrying about one room being too cold or too hot.
Window Units Are Loud
Of course, an important feature of any air conditioning system is that it is able to run quietly in the background. You don’t want to have to listen to the constant sound of the motor running. Unfortunately, most window units can be a bit loud, and if you are using one in a small room, it can become quite a nuisance, especially if you want to sleep. On the other hand, because a ductless system has its compressor installed outdoors, there’s only the noise of the indoor air handler to worry about. This is generally much quieter than your average window AC unit.
