How to Pick the Best Air Conditioner for Your Residence 

Building a new residence? Upgrading your existing system? Regardless of why you’re looking for an air conditioner, you may shortly come to the conclusion that you have more options than you initially thought. Read through this info to help you measure four different options so you can select the right air conditioner in the U.S..

Central Air Conditioning

This is what many people think of when they imagine air conditioning for the total house. Central air conditioning transfers air to every room through a system of ducts and registers.

This could be right for you if:

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

Air-Source Heat Pump

In hot weather, heat pumps work much like central air conditioners. Many models can also provide heat in the winter.

This might be ideal for you if:

    • Your residence has ductwork.
    • You live in a climate with warmer weather during the winter.
    • You’re looking for a lone piece of equipment for full-year heating and cooling, as opposed to a standard furnace and air conditioner.
    • Your residence doesn’t have (or you don’t need) natural or propane gas.
    • You’re looking for nearly noiseless, energy-efficient home comfort.

Geothermal Heat Pump

The ground below your feet hovers at a stable 55 degrees throughout the year. A geothermal heat pump takes advantage of this continuous supply of energy with underground loops for incredible heating and cooling efficiency.

This might be right for you if:

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

Ductless Mini-Split

This is another type of heat pump. With ductless mini-splits, an outdoor unit connects to an inside blower unit mounted to a wall or ceiling. This doesn’t need any ductwork and keeps your windows shut.

This may be right for you if:

    • Your residence, or a recent addition to it, doesn’t have ductwork.
    • You’re looking for an energy-efficient solution for heating and cooling separate areas.
    • You want to get zoning for your residence.
