How to Select the Best Air Conditioner for Your Residence 

Building a new residence? Upgrading your current system? Regardless of why you’re in the market for an air conditioner, you may quickly realize you have more possibilities than you initially thought. Go through this guide 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 the majority of people bring to mind when they picture air conditioning for the complete house. Central air conditioning circulates air to every room with a system of ducts and registers.

This could be right for you if:

    • Your house has ductwork.
    • You currently have a furnace or air handler.
    • You want nearly silent, convenient cooling.

Air-Source Heat Pump

In hot weather, heat pumps operate much like central air conditioners. Many models can also offer heat in cold weather.

This might be good for you if:

    • Your home has ductwork.
    • You live in a location with temperate weather during the winter.
    • You’re seeking a lone piece of equipment for all-season 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 looking for quiet, 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 well of energy with underground loops for fantastic heating and cooling efficiency.

This can be ideal for you if:

    • Your residence utilizes ductwork.
    • You desire one piece of equipment for energy-efficient heating and cooling.
    • You have enough land around your house for the buried loops.

Ductless Mini-Split

This is another style of heat pump. With ductless mini-splits, an outdoor unit hooks up with an interior blower unit installed to a wall or ceiling. This doesn’t call for any ductwork and keeps your windows secure.

This may be good for you if:

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