With warmer temperatures already upon us, your thoughts have likely turned to your air conditioner. If you are thinking about a replacement, now is the perfect time to have a new system installed, before the weather gets too hot and HVAC technicians are busy with emergency calls.
Before you rush out to replace your current air conditioner however, it’s important to know how to choose the best system for your home and your needs. For example, if you already have ductwork installed in your home, then a traditional central air conditioner unit may be the best option for you. We’ve explored a few other types of systems along with their benefits below.
Most homeowners don’t think of heat pumps when it comes to cooling their home. However, these versatile systems are among the most efficient for climates such as ours. Similar to a central AC system, a heat pump circulates a refrigerant blend between two sets of coils.
One of these coils is inside the house and the other is outside. The refrigerant absorbs heat from one set of coils and releases it through the other. This can be reversed in the winter so you have an appliance that provides you with year-round comfort.
Geothermal systems rely on the moderate temperature of the ground just below the surface of the earth. They use a system of underground piping to circulate an antifreeze or water mixture, which works in tandem with a conventional heat pump setup. Similar to a heat pump, in can be used for both cooling and heating.
