How to Pick the Right Air Conditioner for Your House 

Building a new residence? Upgrading your current equipment? No matter why you’re looking for an air conditioner, you may quickly realize you have more options than you initially thought. Follow this information to help you measure four different options so you can find the right air conditioner in the U.S..

Central Air Conditioning

This is what many people call to mind when they picture air conditioning for the whole residence. Central air conditioning sends air to every room through a system of ducts and registers.

This may be right for you if:

    • Your residence has ductwork.
    • You already have a furnace or air handler.
    • You’re seeking nearly silent, convenient operation.

Air-Source Heat Pump

In hot weather, heat pumps work just like central air conditioners. A lot of models can also deliver heat when it’s cold.

This might be right for you if:

    • Your house has ductwork.
    • Your reside in a climate with warmer weather during the winter.
    • You’re seeking a lone piece of equipment for all-season heating and cooling, as opposed to a traditional furnace and air conditioner.
    • Your residence doesn’t use (or you don’t need) natural or propane gas.
    • You’re seeking nearly noiseless, energy-efficient heating and cooling.

Geothermal Heat Pump

The ground beneath your feet stays at an even 55 degrees during the year. A geothermal heat pump takes advantage of this constant supply of energy with underground loops for fantastic heating and cooling efficiency.

This can be ideal for you if:

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

Ductless Mini-Split

This is another type of heat pump. With ductless mini-splits, an outdoor unit connects to an interior blower unit installed to a wall or ceiling. This doesn’t need any ductwork and keeps your windows protected.

This may be right for you if:

    • Your house, or a new add-on to it, doesn’t include ductwork.
    • You’re looking for an energy-efficient solution for heating and cooling individual areas.
    • You’re looking to install zoning in your home.
