If you’re in the market for a new AC, then you have a big decision to make. Unlike a cheap window unit, a whole house air conditioner is a major investment of your resources, and it’s critical that you find a system that works effectively and efficiently in your home. But with so many options in the residential market, it can be difficult to make a decision. From conventional central air units and heat pumps to the latest in high efficiency ductless mini splits, you need to find one that will be sufficiently powerful, energy efficient as well as reliable. Let us help you. Here are some factors to consider.
- Budget. Chief among the factors for most homeowners is budget. Unless you have unlimited income, the cost of the air conditioner will likely be at the front of your mind. Fortunately, there is a whole house air conditioner to suit a diverse range of budgets. If you have any preexisting equipment in your home such as ducts, then you may want to take advantage of them. Both heat pumps and central air units are often considered budget-friendly options.
- Ducts or no ducts. While ducted systems remain the most popular type of cooling system out there, ductless systems are quickly gaining traction. The latter have exceptional energy efficiency ratings and they often avoid much of the indoor air quality issues that arise when dust and other debris accumulate inside your air ducts. But ducted systems are popular for good reason. It comes to your preference and a local HVAC technician is your best resource for advice.
- Size. In order for your new air conditioner to work exactly as it should, it needs to be the right size. That means that the cooling output of the system matches the size of your living space. This is best done by a professional so that you can be certain that your system operates according to the efficiency ratings estimated by the manufacturer.
