How to Select the Ideal Air Conditioner for Your House 

Building a new residence? Upgrading your existing equipment? Regardless of why you’re in the market for an air conditioner, you might shortly come to the conclusion that you have more options than you initially thought. Follow this info to help you weigh four different types so you can choose the ideal air conditioner in the U.S..

Central Air Conditioning

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

This could be great for you if:

    • Your home has ductwork.
    • You already have a furnace or air handler.
    • You want quiet, convenient operation.

Air-Source Heat Pump

In the summer, heat pumps operate similar to central air conditioners. Some models can also offer heat in the winter.

This may be right for you if:

    • Your residence has ductwork.
    • Your reside in a location with mild weather during the winter.
    • You’re seeking a lone piece of equipment for year-round heating and cooling, as opposed to a regular furnace and air conditioner.
    • Your house doesn’t utilize (or you don’t want) natural or propane gas.
    • You’re looking for nearly silent, energy-efficient operation.

Geothermal Heat Pump

The ground under your feet remains at a consistent 55 degrees throughout the year. A geothermal heat pump uses this continuous well of energy with underground loops for incredible heating and cooling efficiency.

This can be good for you if:

    • Your residence utilizes ductwork.
    • You desire a lone piece of equipment for energy-efficient heating and cooling.
    • You have ample land around your home for the buried loops.

Ductless Mini-Split

This is a second style of heat pump. With ductless mini-splits, an outdoor unit connects to an inside blower unit mounted to a wall or ceiling. This doesn’t require any ductwork and keeps your windows protected.

This may be right for you if:

    • Your house, or an immediate add-on to it, doesn’t have ductwork.
    • You’re seeking an energy-efficient solution for heating and cooling individual rooms.
    • You want to install zoning in your residence.
