Why Ducted Air Conditioning Can Provide Both Comfort & Cost Savings
For the most consistent air temperature control throughout the home and other significant benefits, ducted air conditioning is the way to go.
Features like precise fan speed and temperature control; unobtrusive air vents; quiet operating systems and the ability to improve a property’s resale value are among the major benefits.
Basic components of a ducted AC system—which can be either tailored for an existing home or installed as part of new construction—include the air handling unit, outdoor compressor/condensing unit and vents in each room or target area of the home. Vents can be placed discreetly in the ceiling, wall or floor. Many systems will also provide humidifying, air purifying and convenient sleep/timer functions.
One negative for some homeowners is the cost, with prices often starting at about $5,000 and going up to $10,000-$15,000 and occasionally higher. The price will depend on factors including the size of your home and the particular brand and features you choose. You’ll also need to factor in the price of installation.
