Are You Going to Need a New AC This Year?

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

While we are still quite a ways off from the hottest weather of the year, there is no denying that the 70 degree days are giving us some glimpses of warm weather to come. The nights are still chilly, and you aren’t going to be retiring your heater for the year just yet. That being said, you may want to start thinking about your options if you’re planning on replacing your air conditioner this year.

It’s not a decision that you should rush, of course. We live in a very hot area for much of the year, so you want to be sure to choose your system carefully. Here are a few options to consider. Remember to schedule your AC installation or replacement with our team. 

Central Air Conditioners

This is the most common of all home cooling systems, and it may be what you’re using right now to cool your home. By removing heat from the air and then circulating that cooled air around the house via a system of ductwork, central ACs are not only very effective but also allow for prompt cooling. They are far more efficient than using multiple window units throughout the house.

Ductless Mini Splits

If you don’t have ductwork installed in your home, or if you are looking to avoid the use of air ducts due to potential problems with leaks, then a ductless mini split system may be right for you. You can cool different areas of the house to different temperatures, thanks to the use of independent blowers. You can also take advantage of heat pump technology to reverse the operation of the system and to use it to heat your home with great efficiency.

Evaporative Coolers

These cooling systems are great for our dry area. They use very little electricity, as no compressor is used. Instead, they force air through a soaked pad that not only cools that air, but which can help to humidify the house a bit as well.
