How to Pick the Best Air Conditioner for Your Residence 

Building a new residence? Upgrading your present unit? Whatever the reason why you’re in the market for an air conditioner, you might shortly come to the conclusion that you have more choices than you initially thought. Follow this information to help you weigh four different kinds so you can choose the right air conditioner in the U.S..

Central Air Conditioning

This is what most people think of when they envision air conditioning for the whole home. Central air conditioning sends air to every room using a system of ducts and registers.

This might be ideal for you if:

    • Your home has ductwork.
    • You presently have a furnace or air handler.
    • You’re looking for quiet, convenient cooling.

Air-Source Heat Pump

In warm weather, heat pumps operate much like central air conditioners. Some models can also provide heat in the winter.

This might be right for you if:

    • Your home has ductwork.
    • You live in an area with temperate weather during the winter.
    • You’re seeking a lone piece of equipment for full-year heating and cooling, rather than a regular furnace and air conditioner.
    • Your residence doesn’t utilize (or you don’t want) natural or propane gas.
    • You want quiet, energy-efficient operation.

Geothermal Heat Pump

The ground beneath your feet hovers at an even 55 degrees during the year. A geothermal heat pump draws on this constant source of energy with underground loops for excellent heating and cooling efficiency.

This might be right for you if:

    • Your residence utilizes ductwork.
    • You desire a lone piece of equipment for energy-efficient heating and cooling.
    • You have adequate land around your residence for the underground loops.

Ductless Mini-Split

This is an additional type of heat pump. With ductless mini-splits, an outdoor unit links to an inside blower unit fixed to a wall or ceiling. This doesn’t call for any ductwork and keeps your windows protected.

This might be right for you if:

    • Your home, or a recent addition to it, doesn’t come with ductwork.
    • You’re looking for an energy-efficient approach for heating and cooling separate spaces.
    • You’re seeking to add zoning to your home.
