When you live in this part of the United States, there is one part of your Tampa, FL HVAC system that you use a lot more than the other: your air conditioner. We see far more temperatures that are hot and uncomfortable than much else. What that means is that our AC systems see a lot more use and much more wear and tear. That use will add up eventually and your system will need to be replaced.
If you are getting ready to replace your air conditioning system you are going to need to decide what unit you want to install next. There is more than one cooling system option that may be a good fit for your home. The key deciding factor here is that you need to choose the system that will best suit your home comfort needs. But how do you choose?
3 Key Questions For Deciding On Your Next AC Unit
Choosing the next AC system for your home is an important decision. You want to make sure that you select the one that will meet your cooling needs best without costing you excessive amounts of money. Here are three key questions you should ask to help you narrow down your options and choose the best possible one.
1. Do you have ductwork?
Do you already have ductwork in your home? If so what condition is it in? If you have good quality ducts that are holding up well, you can choose any ducted system for your home like a central AC or a heat pump. If your ductwork is deteriorating, or you don’t have any ducts to start with, a ductless system may be a better option for keeping your home cool.
2. Are you looking for even cooling or customizable options
When you cool your home do you want the entire home to be cooled evenly every time? If so, a central air conditioner may be a good fit for you. If you are up for customizable comfort, such as the option to cool one room at a time to save more energy, then a heat pump system will be a better choice.
3. Do you need a new heating system in the near future?
We know that you likely aren’t anywhere near thinking about heating up your home. However, it doesn’t hurt to think ahead so you aren’t struggling to stay comfortable without a heating system come the cooler months. If your heater is on its last leg, it might be the right time to select and install a heat pump as these systems can both cool and heat your home.
