  • High SEER rating. Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (aka SEER) is the industry standard for determining how efficient air conditioning systems are. It measures the amount of electrical input against cooling output. More and more this standard is becoming important to customers looking to maximize their cooling performance and reduce their use of energy. Look for a high SEER rating when selecting your new replacement air conditioner.
  • Ductless. If you are particularly sensitive to airborne allergens, or want a change from your previous central air system, ductless mini split air conditioning systems are innovative, highly efficient systems designed to cool your home without the use of extensive ductwork. They use a standard outdoor unit containing the compressor/condenser, but instead of a large air handler hooked up to ducts, the air handlers are sleek and compact units that sit directly in the home, often sitting high on the wall, or recessed in the ceiling. They connect to the outdoor unit by compact refrigerant lines.
  • Zone control. Zone control divides your home into cooled air zones in order to offer an unprecedented amount of temperature control over your home. If you opt for a ductless mini split system, then you can install several indoor air handlers per outdoor unit and control these individually by thermostats. However, even if you opt for a central air system, then you can choose to install a zone control system, which uses electronically controlled dampers within your ductwork to control the airflow. These can also be assigned thermostats to customize your indoor climate.
