What To Know About Your AC System Options


If you are in the market for a new air conditioner, then you know this is an important decision to make. For one thing, you need to choose a system that can effectively cool your home. For another, you need to select a system that will keep you happy for a long while because your AC is built to stay with you for a long time.

With all that said, it is easy to see why you should take into consideration all of the potential system options available to you. We want you to enjoy a system that will keep you cool all summer long. That is why we want to provide you with a quick overview of what your options are so you can find the right one for your home.

Option 1: Central Air Conditioners

Central air conditioners are what most people picture in their heads when they imagine cooling systems. These are split systems that use an outdoor condenser unit and an indoor evaporator unit to pull heat out of the air in your home. You need enough space for the physical units of a central AC along with good ductwork to have this system. With a central AC though you can enjoy powerful and efficient cooling. You can even get better efficiency with a variable refrigerant flow option or an inverter option.

Option 2: Heat Pump Mini Splits

Heat pump mini-splits are another type of AC that uses a split setup. In this case, however, the indoor unit is replaced with a heat pump air handler. This means the system takes up less space while still offering incredible efficiency and effectiveness. What’s more, these systems are able to provide heating for your home as well come wintertime thanks to their use of a reversing valve. This means there are benefits of two systems in one.

Option 3: Ductless Air Conditioners

Last but not least, don’t forget about ductless AC systems. Ductless systems are a kind of heat pump that offers the added benefit of providing comfort without needing to use ductwork. Instead, you can connect multiple air handlers to your outdoor condenser unit. This makes a ductless system the best fit for smaller or older homes that can’t accommodate ductwork. What’s more, you can enjoy even better efficiency with these systems by only operating one or two air handlers at a time which means you won’t need extra energy to keep cool.
