How to Pick the Best Air Conditioner for Your Residence 

Building a new residence? Upgrading your present system? Whatever the reason why you’re in the market for an air conditioner, you could quickly realize you have more possibilities than you originally thought. Go through this information to help you weigh four different options so you can find the right air conditioner in the U.S..

Central Air Conditioning

This is what many people think of when they envision air conditioning for the whole house. Central air conditioning circulates air to every room with a system of ducts and registers.

This may be right for you if:

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

Air-Source Heat Pump

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

This could be right for you if:

    • Your home has ductwork.
    • You live in a location with temperate weather during the winter.
    • You want a lone piece of equipment for year-round heating and cooling, in lieu of a regular furnace and air conditioner.
    • Your residence doesn’t utilize (or you don’t need) natural or propane gas.
    • You want nearly silent, energy-efficient home comfort.

Geothermal Heat Pump

The ground under your feet remains at a stable 55 degrees all year round. A geothermal heat pump taps into this ongoing well of energy with underground loops for incredible heating and cooling efficiency.

This might be good for you if:

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

Ductless Mini-Split

This is an additional style of heat pump. With ductless mini-splits, an outdoor unit connects to an interior blower unit mounted to a wall or ceiling. This doesn’t call for any ductwork and keeps your windows shut.

This might be good for you if:

    • Your residence, or a recent addition to it, doesn’t come with ductwork.
    • You’re looking for an energy-efficient solution for heating and cooling single spaces.
    • You want to install zoning in your house.
