A Guide to Choosing the Right AC for Your Home

Spring has sprung and the warm weather has arrived already. If you haven’t turned on your air conditioner yet, you will soon! If you notice that your AC is struggling this season, or that it has stopped working altogether, you need a new one. When you’re searching for a replacement, there will be several different styles available that seem appealing. However, each model has its pros and cons that may affect how well it can function in your home.

Before making a purchase, you should compare each model and choose one that will be able to meet the needs of you and your home. Luckily, Air Tech Pros can help you choose. Here are some of the most common cooling systems available for your home today:

  • Central Air is the most common cooling system across the country because it can cool your entire house. Typically, these systems include a large compressor is situated outside that drives the cooling process. Indoor refrigerant coils disperse the cool air through the existing vents in your home.
  • Heat Pumps work like central air systems do – they push air into your home through your vents. In addition to cooling, they can be used year-round for heating as well. Heat pumps help save money in utilities, but they may be less suitable for areas that experience extreme heat or cold.
  • Room unit AC’s are very common among homes that don’t have central air. They are typically mounted on a wall, ceiling, or through a window and can cool a single room or small open area. The upfront cost of room air conditioners is low, but constant use will reflect in your electricity bill.
  • Evaporative coolers are very useful in dry areas, as they work by pulling fresh air through an evaporative system. These models are very efficient and cost-effective to run. Because they add moisture to the air, they shouldn’t be used in areas that are already humid.
  • Ductless Mini-Split systems have grown increasingly popular in the past few years. These systems can be used for both heating and cooling and can be installed in one day. Mini-splits have two parts: an outdoor and an indoor component. These systems are best for cooling specific ductless areas, like an office, an addition, or a master bedroom. They are energy efficient and can improve your air quality as well.

Deciding Factors

You may be familiar with the pros and cons of each system, but do you know which one will work best in your home? Before you make up your mind, you should do a little research. You may like what a specific model has to offer, but it may end up being a poor fit in your home. Here are things you should consider before making a purchase:
