Replacing your old air conditioning system with a new one can help save you money with better energy efficiency, and it can offer improved comfort. There are 3 main options available when looking to purchase a new air conditioning system, and it is worth taking the time to review each one to ensure the best choice for your home. And remember: if you have any questions about your air conditioning replacement in Bloomingdale, you can always call AAction Air.
Split System Air Conditioners
Split system air conditioners are very commonly used, particularly in residential properties. With a split system, there are two separate units that work together to cool air; one unit stays inside your home, the other is housed outside. The indoor unit contains the air handler and evaporator coils; the outdoor unit contains the compressor, the condenser, condenser fan and condenser coils. The outdoor unit releases heat while the indoor unit distributes the cool air back into your house. Ductwork is needed for this type of system to be installed, along with a SEER number of at least 13.
A geothermal heating/cooling system takes advantage of the steady ground temperature a few feet below the Earth’s surface. How? The ground stays about 55 degrees year-round; geothermal heating and cooling uses this thermal energy to heat your home in the winter, via a buried loop system carrying a heat transfer liquid, or simply acts as a traditional AC or heat pump in the summer. Geothermal cooling has high levels of efficiency and uses ductwork to deliver the air.
Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning
Ductless mini-split air conditioning, also known as ductless air conditioning, is a good option if you have a property that does not have ductwork. A ductless AC works similarly to a traditional split system air conditioner, but with multiple indoor units instead of vents. An outdoor unit houses the compressor, condenser and condenser coils, while the indoors is cooled by the individual blowers placed flush against walls or hanging from ceilings. Depending on the size of the outdoor unit, anywhere from 4 to 8 indoor blowers can run off a single outdoor unit. This type of individualization with the blowers creates zone cooling, which can be very energy efficient.
Getting the correct air conditioner for your property is important, as purchasing the wrong one may result in incorrect cooling and/or efficiency.
