Central Air vs Mini Split

One of the biggest choices you’ll have to make in your lifetime may be: central air vs mini split? This decision ultimately will affect your wallet and overall comfort for decades. Heating and cooling systems account for nearly half the cost of an electric bill for most homes. Selecting the right indoor comfort system is different for every space. Some homes are very large and need large amounts of air conditioned. While other spaces are quite small and have very little heating cooling demand.

Central Heating and Air

Central air conditioning systems are a great choice for large homes or business spaces that need to move a large amount of airflow to maintain a comfortable temperature. Central air conditioning units also allow for air purification and upgraded air filtration. This can really make the biggest difference for someone that suffers from a breathing condition or suffers with allergies. When considering the overall aesthetics or look of your indoor comfort system a central system can be installed discreetly. With homeowner only seeing air vent registers or linear diffusers to supply airflow.
