Goettl Air conditioning unit

Get to Know Your Home Cooling Options

Living in this part of the country necessitates the installation of a great air conditioner in your home. While the central air conditioning system is undoubtedly still the most popular of all whole-house cooling systems, there are a number of other great options that you should consider when looking for a new AC. You don’t want to box yourself in just because you are unfamiliar with some of the other technologies available to you, right?

In today’s post, we are going to help you better understand some of the alternate cooling systems that may be used to help you keep your home cool and comfortable during even the hottest time of the year. Remember, whatever type of AC you decide upon, you can count on the seasoned professionals here at Goettl Air Conditioning Tucson to install and service that system properly. We’ll help you to enjoy dependable and effective air conditioning in Tucson, AZ.

Evaporative Coolers

If there is one characteristic that defines our weather here in Arizona, it is “hot.” Another apt descriptor, though, is “dry.” It is this dryness that makes the evaporative cooler such an attractive home cooling option for so many homeowners. The system actually helps to add humidity to the air as it runs, unlike traditional ACs that actively dry the air out.

Evaporative coolers draw air over a damp pad, which helps to naturally lower the air’s temperature. You leave your windows cracked to allow fresh air in, which helps to protect indoor air quality. Plus, because the system does not rely on a refrigerant cycle, the evaporative cooler is a very efficient home cooling system.

Ductless Mini Splits

Does your home lack ductwork? Are you just looking to avoid the use of air ducts in order to avoid the potential indoor air quality and efficiency issues that can come along with it? If so, then a ductless mini split is just what you’re after.

You don’t have to make do with inefficient and inconvenient window unit air conditioners just because you don’t want to use air ducts. With a ductless mini split system, multiple indoor blowers are connected to a single outdoor unit. These blowers will cool the individual areas in which they are installed, and can heat them as well — they’re heat pumps, just without the ducts!

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps work just like central air conditioning systems — in the summer, at least. They use the refrigerant cycle in order to draw heat out of the air passing over the evaporator coil. The big difference? The heat pump is able to reverse its refrigerant cycle, in turn reversing its function and doubling as a heater when temperatures cool down!

This is incredibly efficient, being as that the heat pump does not have to consume fuel in order to generate new heat. Instead, the system simply evaporates refrigerant outdoors, in what is usually the condenser coil, and compresses that refrigerant to further boost its thermal energy. Once that’s done, the heat is released inside the home.

Let us know if you have any questions about available cooling systems. Remember — G-O-E-T-T-L it’ll keep you cool but it’s hard to spell.

I called Goettl to get a second opinion on a/c repair options or replacement. Peter Medelez conducted a very thorough system check and confirmed all the same issues previously identified but found an additional issue; tipping the scale to full replacement. We appreciated his professionalism and knowledge: answering all our questions and explaining the issues and options. We ultimately chose Goettl for the replacement option due to their price and professionalism.

William and Cameron were knowledgeable, friendly, professional, respectful and put on plastic booties over their shoes when they came into the house. Our pets were comfortable with them and that says a lot. We will definitely ask for them again in the future if our AC has any issues.
