How to Pick the Best Air Conditioner for Your Residence 

Building a new residence? Upgrading your current equipment? No matter why you’re looking for an air conditioner, you may soon learn you have more choices than you originally thought. Go through this info to help you compare four different types so you can find the best air conditioner in the U.S..

Central Air Conditioning

This is what most people think of when they imagine air conditioning for the full home. Central air conditioning transfers air to every room with a system of ducts and registers.

This might be right for you if:

    • Your house has ductwork.
    • You currently have a furnace or air handler.
    • You’re looking for nearly silent, convenient air conditioning.

Air-Source Heat Pump

In hot weather, heat pumps work just like central air conditioners. A lot of models can also deliver heat in the winter.

This might be good for you if:

    • Your residence has ductwork.
    • Your reside in a climate with mild weather during the winter.
    • You’re looking for a lone piece of equipment for full-year heating and cooling, in lieu of a regular furnace and air conditioner.
    • Your home doesn’t have (or you don’t want) natural or propane gas.
    • You’re seeking nearly noiseless, energy-efficient heating and cooling.

Geothermal Heat Pump

The ground below your feet hovers at a stable 55 degrees all year round. A geothermal heat pump taps into this ongoing supply of energy with underground loops for excellent heating and cooling efficiency.

This might be good for you if:

    • Your home has ductwork.
    • You want one piece of equipment for energy-efficient heating and cooling.
    • You have adequate land around your residence for the buried loops.

Ductless Mini-Split

This is another type of heat pump. With ductless mini-splits, an outdoor unit links to an indoor blower unit mounted to a wall or ceiling. This doesn’t require any ductwork and keeps your windows secure.

This might be right for you if:

    • Your house, or a new add-on to it, doesn’t include ductwork.
    • You want an energy-efficient approach for heating and cooling separate areas.
    • You’re looking to get zoning for your house.
