Let’s Take a Closer Look!

When the time comes to find the air conditioner of your dreams, you’ve got plenty of options:

Central Air Conditioners

When you hear the word “air conditioner,” the first image that likely pops into your head is that of a central air conditioner. These are by far the most common option in residential cooling. These forced-air systems are reliable, efficient, and quite effective. Central air conditioners rely on a network of ducts to circulate cool, conditioned air all over your home, so if your home currently has ductwork in place, a central AC might be your best option.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are becoming quite popular for their ability to provide year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch! Heat pumps work much like a standard AC, relying on the flow of refrigerant to keep your home cool. But unlike a standard AC, a heat pump comes equipped with a reversing valve. This valve is used to reverse the flow of refrigerant, allowing for home heating in addition to cooling! Heat pumps come in both ducted and ductless models, so no matter the layout of your home, there is a heat pump for you!

Ductless Systems

Ductless systems, as the name implies, are air conditioners that do not rely on a network of ducts, making them a great alternative for homes that do not have the space for ductwork. Instead, these systems rely on one outdoor condenser unit and multiple indoor air handlers to deliver cool air to your home. And, because ductless systems are a type of heat pump, they work as both a heater and an air conditioner, allowing for year-round comfort!

Yes, You Need Professional Installation

When the time comes to install a new air conditioning system in your home, be sure to call in a professional for help. Trust us, only a certified HVAC professional has the proper tools, training, and experience to assess the needs of your home and match you with the system that is going to best meet those needs.

And sure, there will be plenty of amateurs willing to lend a helping hand for a fairly cheap price, however, sometimes, if not most times, an attempt to save money will end up costing you much much more in the long run. Therefore, it is always better to call in a pro and get the job done right the first time around!
