Which Air Conditioning System Is Best For You?

AC Systems

When the weather heats up in the long summer months, air conditioning can keep your family nice and cool. To avoid expensive energy bills, you should have an energy-efficient air conditioning system. There are many types of AC systems that our HVAC professionals can install. Each of these systems come with their own benefits for different situations.

Window Units

Window units are ideal for apartments where you can’t change any of the physical parts of your unit. They will also work to cool down specific rooms in a home if you can’t invest in a whole-home HVAC system. These sit in an average-sized window and are available in some energy-efficient models. It’s important to note that you’ll likely need several window units to cool your entire home.

Portable Units

If you live somewhere that can’t fit window A/C units, consider portable units. These only need a small outlet where you can allow the warm air to escape to the outdoors. You can use a small window where a traditional window unit won’t fit to vent a portable AC unit.

Central Air Conditioning

If you’re looking for a whole-home cooling system, then consider central air conditioning. This is best for new construction or existing homes that have ducting. They use ducting to deliver cool air and remove warm air from the rooms throughout your home. This type of HVAC system is available in many different energy-efficient models. The best part is that you’ll only need to invest in one centralized cooling system to cool your entire home.

Ductless/Mini-Split Systems

Another newer option is the ductless mini-split system. This is best for existing homes that currently don’t have any ducting. Instead of tearing out drywall and installing ductwork, you can use a ductless system. These use individual wall-mounted units that are in the main rooms of your home. The wall unit actually works to both heat and cool your home. You can set each unit with unique settings. For example, you can have your bedroom unit set to 71 degrees and your living room set at 73 degrees. This zone cooling allows for even more energy efficiency.
