How to Choose the Ideal Air Conditioner for Your Home 

Building a new home? Upgrading your current equipment? Whatever the reason why you’re in the market for an air conditioner, you might soon learn you have more alternatives than you originally thought. Go through this information to help you weigh four different types so you can select the best air conditioner in the U.S..

Central Air Conditioning

This is what most people think of when they picture air conditioning for the complete residence. Central air conditioning circulates air to every room with a system of ducts and registers.

This may be great for you if:

    • Your residence has ductwork.
    • You currently have a furnace or air handler.
    • You want quiet, convenient cooling.

Air-Source Heat Pump

In warm weather, heat pumps run much like central air conditioners. A lot of models can also provide heat in cold weather.

This could be good for you if:

    • Your residence has ductwork.
    • Your home is in a climate with temperate weather during the winter.
    • You’re seeking one piece of equipment for all-season heating and cooling, as opposed to a standard furnace and air conditioner.
    • Your house doesn’t have (or you don’t desire) natural or propane gas.
    • You’re seeking nearly noiseless, energy-efficient home comfort.

Geothermal Heat Pump

The ground below your feet stays at an even 55 degrees throughout the year. A geothermal heat pump draws on this ongoing source of energy with underground loops for incredible heating and cooling efficiency.

This could be good for you if:

    • Your home uses ductwork.
    • You’re looking for a lone 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 a second style of heat pump. With ductless mini-splits, an outdoor unit links to an inside blower unit installed to a wall or ceiling. This doesn’t require any ductwork and keeps your windows shut.

This may be ideal for you if:

    • Your house, or a new expansion to it, doesn’t include ductwork.
    • You’re looking for an energy-efficient solution for heating and cooling single areas.
    • You’re seeking to add zoning to your house.
