While ductless and central air conditioners have distinct pros and cons, there is no clear answer to this question. The better unit will depend on your unique situation.

That said, looking at the benefits and drawbacks of each system can help you determine the right unit for you.

For example, ductless mini-split systems offer:

  • Unmatched efficiency: Due to their sophisticated technology, mini-split systems can effectively cool your home while using minimal energy.
  • Built-in zoning: The system’s multiple indoor units give you precise control over your home’s comfort.
  • Easier to maintain: Cleaning, maintenance, and modifications are easier and cheaper.

Meanwhile, central air conditioner units offer benefits such as:

  • Low initial cost: If your home has existing ductwork, your initial expenses will be lower.
  • More range: Central AC units are better if you have a large home that needs consistent cooling or heating.
  • Diversity: These systems are more diverse in terms of brands, makes, and models.

Have you turned your AC on but noticed it isn’t blowing cold air? Several things could prevent your AC from circulating cold air, including:

  • Low refrigerant: Your unit could be running low on refrigerant.
  • Clogged filters: Filters filled with dirt, dust, pollen, and other contaminants could prevent air from flowing into your home.
  • Thermostat issues: When your air conditioner isn’t blowing cold air, checking your thermostat settings might remedy the issue. Sometimes, the problem could be down to a faulty thermostat.
  • Damaged condenser or evaporator coil: Issues with your AC unit’s coil or condenser can cause major disruptions to its functionality.

When your heating unit is on but not supplying heat, you can take certain steps to determine the issue. These steps include:

  • Checking your thermostat settings
  • Confirming your system has power
  • Checking if you have clogged filters

If you haven’t used your furnace for a while, it is normal for it to blow cold air when you switch it on. Generally, your unit simply needs some time to warm up, so give it up to 15 minutes to do so.

If your furnace is still producing cold air, there could be an underlying problem. We recommend turning it off and reaching out to our repair team for professional assistance.
