Choosing the Right AC for Your Home

Choosing a brand new air conditioning system for your home can certainly be a little overwhelming — with so many options on the market today, how do you know which system is going to be a good fit?

Narrowing down your options can be quite tricky, which is why we are here to help! Below, we have listed some of the best air conditioning systems on the market today to give you a bit of a head start. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more! So, what are you waiting for?

Your Air Conditioning Options

We’ve described some of the most popular air conditioning options on the market today for you below:

Central Air Conditioners

When you hear the word “air conditioner”, the image that likely pops into your head is that of a central air conditioner. These systems are by far the most popular air conditioning option on the market today — they’re efficient, reliable, and super effective!

Central air conditioners are a type of forced-air system, meaning that they rely on a network of ducts to circulate cool and conditioned air. So, if your home has the space for ductwork, or if you already have ductwork installed, a central air conditioner might be the best choice for your home.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps work much like a standard air conditioner, relying on the flow of refrigerant to transfer heat from one place to another. But what sets the heat pump apart from a standard air conditioner is the reversing valve, which is used to reverse the direction the refrigerant flows through the system. This is what allows for home heating in addition to cooling! That’s right: with just one system, you can both effectively heat and cool your home!

Heat pumps come in ducted and ductless models, so no matter what your needs are, we can find a heat pump for you. These systems are known for being super efficient and effective, so if you are looking for a way to save, consider installing one of these systems.

Ductless Mini Split Systems

Ductless systems, also known as ductless mini split systems, are a type of heat pump. But rather than rely on a network of ducts, these systems utilize one outdoor condenser unit and multiple indoor air handlers to circulate conditioned air throughout the home.  These systems are super efficient, effective, and a great option for homeowners whose homes lack the space for ductwork.

And because ductless systems are a type of heat pump, they too come fully equipped with a reversing valve. So no matter the temperature outside, you’ll be nice and comfortable inside!
