What Are My Options for Air Conditioning Installation?

It’s still cool in our part of the world, but it won’t be long before it’s time to switch the thermostat from heating to cooling. If you are in need of a new air conditioner for the coming summer season, whether for a brand new installation or to replace an aging one, you’ll want to take some time to consider your available choices. There are a number of options for homeowners when it comes to air conditioning, and taking some time to review them with a trained professional helps ensure that you’ll purchase and install an air conditioning system that will fit your needs and the needs of your home for a long time. The experts at Clean Air Act can help you every step of the way, so call us today and schedule an appointment.

AC Options

Here are the air conditioning choices available from Clean Air Act:

  • Traditional split systems – this type of whole home air conditioning has an outdoor unit that contains the compressor, condenser and condenser fan, and an indoor unit that contains the evaporator and air handler. Ductwork is necessary to deliver the air.
  • Heat pumps – heat pumps can heat and cool your home and do so by transferring heat from one location to another, using refrigerant to facilitate this process. Heat pumps do not use any fossil fuels, just a small amount of electricity, and they can be ducted or ductless systems.
  • Ductless air conditioning – ductless air conditioners can be AC-only or be part of a heat pump system and provide ductless heating and cooling. Ductless air conditioners have an outdoor unit very similar to that of a traditional split system AC, but use independent indoor blowers to deliver the cool (or warm) air.
  • Geothermal cooling – geothermal systems utilize heat pumps, so they offer both heating and cooling. When it comes to cooling, the heat pump of the geothermal system absorbs the heat inside your home and transfers it to the system’s ground loop, where it is released into the surrounding soil. In the winter, the ground loop absorbs the surrounding heat, transfers it to the heat pump where it is concentrated, and then the heat is dispersed throughout your home.
