Ductless Splits vs Window Shaker Air Conditioners

Posted on: May 18th, 2016 by Ashton Service Group

People have many choices for cooling down their home. A window shaker air conditioner is one inexpensive way to do it but they do come with some disadvantages. Their cooling capability is not comparable to a ductless split to give you the desired temperature or same level of cooling in the room.

Why Not Use a Window Unit?

– They’re an invitation for burglars and intruders due to the window where the unit is placed.
– Your view outside and incoming light is blocked.
– Old window units are ugly, sweaty and add no value to your home.
– The noise levels of the window unit cycling on and off during the night can disturb your sleep especially if someone in your home is a light sleeper.
– Window units need to be installed every summer and stored every winter. It can be a chore to do this twice a year every year.
