Having to choose a new air conditioning system for your home can be a stressful and confusing time. With all the different types of air conditioners on the market, the possibilities may seem overwhelming. Depending on your situation, you might even be under a time constraint and have to choose a new system soon.
Different Types of Air Conditioners
- Central Air Conditioning
Of all the different types of air conditioners, this is the most common type of cooling system as it is the most preferable for larger homes due to its ability to cool efficiently. Central air conditioners circulate cool air through supply and return ducts. Supply ducts and registers, which are in the wall or floors, carry cooled air into the home. Then, once the air becomes warm it circulates back into the supply ducts and registers where it will then be transported back to the air conditioner.
- Window Air Conditioner
Think of a window air conditioner as a compact unit, cooling only one particular room. Also known as a “unitary unit,” this system is installed in the window of a room.
- Ductless, Mini-Split Air Conditioner
Ductless, mini-split systems are most common in parts of the home that have been retro-fitted. Like central air conditioning systems, these systems have an outdoor compressor/condenser and an indoor handling unit.
- Portable Air Conditioner
Portable air conditioners are considered as the next generator of window units. This type of air conditioning unit takes in air from the room and cools it, then directs it back into the room.
- Hybrid Air Conditioners
Like hybrid cars, hybrid heat pump systems alternate between burning fossil fuels and using electricity to run. The system intelligently chooses between the two energy sources in order to save money and energy. You won’t have to be held hostage by rising energy prices.
- Geothermal Heating & Cooling
Geothermal energy is sustainable, energy efficient, and has a long lifespan. Since the ground temperature below us remains a fairly consistent 55 degrees no matter how hot or cold it is in the atmosphere, geothermal technology is able to extract the heat from below and transfer it into your home.
