There is a pretty massive variety of different AC systems on the market today, all of them with their own pros and cons. There is no one air conditioning system that is objectively better than any other. What is important is that you have an air conditioning system installed that fits your needs best. Read on to find out more about some of the more popular air conditioning systems available on the market, and the benefits they can offer you.
Central Air Conditioning
Central AC has been around quite a while, and remains at the top of the market in terms of popularity. A single system, typically split into two parts, siphons heat from the home’s air and circulates the now-cooled air through a system of ducts. This is an affordable and effective way to cool most homes, but it does require that central duct system in order to work.
Heat pumps are constructed almost exactly like air conditioners, with one big exception. Heat pumps have a part called the reversing valve, which enables them to act as both heating and cooling systems. This advantage is the main reason homeowners install heat pump systems.
A ductless mini split system is a heat pump that doesn’t use ducts. Instead, it uses a series of smaller air handlers to circulate air throughout individual rooms of the home. Each air handler has its own thermostat, and up to four indoor air handlers can be connected to a single outdoor unit. Ductless systems are heat pumps, so they are also able to act as both heating and cooling systems.
