Choosing the Best Air Conditioner for Your Home

As we discussed in last week’s blog post, now is the perfect time to determine if your air conditioner needs replacing. A properly functioning air conditioning system is vital for Virginia summers. It’s important to take a pause though, and make sure you are purchasing the best type of air conditioning system for your home and your family’s needs. We’ve listed a few systems we offer below, along with their benefits.

Central AC

Do you already have ductwork installed through your home? If this is the case then a central AC unit may be your best option. Central air conditioning allows for whole-home cooling, which cannot be achieved with window units or ceiling fans.

While these types of appliances do provide some cooling effect, alone they are not as efficient as modern air conditioners. There’s also a variety of thermostat options to help you maintain control over your cooling in order to save money.

Heat Pump

This 2-in-1 system provides heat during the winter and cooling during the spring and summer. Ideal for areas with mild winters, they are a very good option for most Virginia residents. They work by moving refrigerant to heat and cool your home, reversing direction as the season requires.

Ductless

If you actually lack ducts in your home, then a ductless heat pump may very well be the right system for you. They’re similar to traditional air conditioners in that they have an outdoor unit that pumps refrigerant in. However, as the name implies, ductless systems do not need ductwork. They are great for homes on the smaller side that lack room for bulky equipment.

Packaged HVAC

A packaged HVAC unit is also a heat pump, but unlike a typical heat pump it has both coils housed in a single unit. This unit can be installed outside the home, with a duct leading into the home and connecting to the duct network. It is more energy efficient than most traditional heating systems, and saves even more room in your home than a standard heat pump system.
