What is the difference between a ducted air conditioning unit and a ductless unit?

What is the difference between a ducted air conditioning unit and a ductless unit?

What is the difference between a ducted air conditioning unit and a ductless unit? For seasoned homeowners, this can be an easy question. But, for new homeowners, there may be some questions and concerns. There are several differences between the two units, which are meant to accommodate different households.

Ducted air conditioning units require a series of metal networks throughout the walls and ceilings called ducts. These networks move both cool and warm air through your home or workplace. On the other hand, ductless air conditioning units do not require ducts, and the unit can be installed inside or outside the wall or on the ceiling.

Ducted air conditioning units work best when ducts are already installed in your home or workplace. Should you require ductwork, our trusted experts at Twin Tech can inspect your ducts and make any necessary repairs or installations. If you find there is an area in your home or workplace that gets more humid than others, a ducted unit might be best for your home. Finally, ducted air conditioning units provide better airflow, as there is a system for the air to flow more freely.

Ductless air conditioning units have their benefits as well. If the area does not have the space for ductwork, these units may work best. If dust is a concern, then these particular units are right for you. This is because ductless air conditioning units do not distribute dust, as there are no ducts for it to travel through. Additionally, with ductless air conditioning, you can have multiple units for different rooms. Each unit can be set at a different temperature, which means there will be no more fights about where the temperature should be set at!

Whether you go with ducted air conditioning or ductless, you can be sure to trust our experts at Twintech.

I’ll Always Be Contacting Twintech First

My existing 15-yr old A/C went down on me during the first major heatwave of the season. Researched my options, as well as a few different installers, and decided on Twintech.

They gave me confidence right from the beginning. Extremely knowledgeable. Their communication was excellent - always responded to questions quickly. Given we were in a heatwave, they were fully booked. However, within days they were able to fit me in due to a cancellation. Upon learning that the Amana unit I was getting installed was on backorder, TwinTech went to bat for me with the manufacturer and was able to get me the next model up within a day, for the same price - Amazing!

As far as the installation was concerned, I couldn’t be more impressed. These guys were clearly very experienced and did a fantastic job. Very clean, polite, timely & informative. They even thoroughly sealed all the exposed gaps in my ductwork. I’ve had plenty of heating and cooling work done in the past and have never used the same contractor twice because I’ve never been very impressed. However, from now on, I’ll always be contacting Twintech first!

Efficient. Professional. No BS or overselling. What was promised, was delivered at a cost-effective price point.
Down to earth.

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors

Professionally done and took care to cover all entry floors to the house for the installers to remove the old furnace and install a new furnace.
I also made recommendations of the tankless water heater that we had installed and items to address. We did not know they also installed tankless water heaters.

Proud to support this local company

Price was not the cheapest nor the most expensive of my quotes. It's the quality of the installation that makes for a good AC system. The twins' knowledge & professionalism was evident in the small details:
Very clean work. Greg made sure that the refrigerant level & temperature were correct. They reinstall the insulation & vapor barrier around the wall. The outside electrical cords were secured to the wall. Proud to support this local company. Thank you.

Excellent Workmanship, and Quick Response

Excellent workmanship, and quick response. Would recommend Twintech to anyone.
