They make use of air ducts, which make the unit much easier and more affordable to install than a central system. In this type, there is one unit that acts as the air handler and sis put inside the house while the other unit is the compressor piece that stays outside the house. Air handler can be more than one, depending on the size of your house, but the air compressor will only be a single unit. Putting an air handler in every room is a good option for you. A handler can be used for more than one room for areas that are open and wide.
