What Are Your AC Options?
First things first, what systems are available to you? You shouldn’t choose one that is the wrong fit for your home so knowing what air conditioners are possible to select from and what differentiates them is helpful. Here are the top three to know about.
Central air conditioners
A central AC unit is one of the most common systems out there and well known because they’ve been around for a long time. Central ACs consist of an outdoor condenser unit and an indoor evaporator unit that cycle refrigerant to transfer heat out of the air in the house. These systems are powerful and reliable for the purpose of cooling a whole home to the same temperature. Modern systems are highly efficient and some can even run more slowly to reduce energy use.
Heat pump mini splits
Heat pumps mini splits use the same “split” set up but their indoor unit is replaced with an air handler. These systems can offer the unique advantage of being able to reverse their flow of refrigerant. This means they can both cool and heat your home. They are also far more compact!
Ductless air conditioners
Lastly, ductless air conditioners are another type of heat pump. The difference is that these systems are able to do the same job without the need for ductwork. This can reduce your repair needs and even offers the perk of an easier installation process. Ductless systems are a great fit for a home that is too old or small for ductwork or simply for anyone who doesn’t want to bother with ductwork.
Selecting an Air Conditioner
So now that you know what is available, how do you choose which one is best? Make sure to consider the following factors:
- How much space you have for the system itself.
- How much space the system will need to cool.
- How efficient you want the system to be.
- Whether you need to use ductwork or not.
