How to Choose the Ideal Air Conditioner for Your House 

Building a new house? Upgrading your existing equipment? Regardless of why you’re in the market for an air conditioner, you might quickly learn you have more choices than you originally thought. Follow this information to help you weigh four different kinds so you can choose the right 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 whole home. Central air conditioning circulates air to every room using a system of ducts and registers.

This could be great for you if:

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

Air-Source Heat Pump

In hot weather, heat pumps operate much like central air conditioners. Some models can also offer heat in the winter.

This could be right for you if:

    • Your house has ductwork.
    • You live in a climate with temperate weather during the winter.
    • You’re seeking a single piece of equipment for year-round heating and cooling, in lieu of a regular furnace and air conditioner.
    • Your residence doesn’t have (or you don’t desire) natural or propane gas.
    • You’re looking for nearly silent, energy-efficient heating and cooling.

Geothermal Heat Pump

The ground under your feet remains at a stable 55 degrees during the year. A geothermal heat pump taps into this continuous source of energy with underground loops for incredible heating and cooling efficiency.

This could be ideal for you if:

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

Ductless Mini-Split

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

This may be good for you if:

    • Your residence, or a new add-on to it, doesn’t have ductwork.
    • You’re seeking an energy-efficient approach for heating and cooling single rooms.
    • You’re seeking to add zoning to your house.
