Some Options for New Air Conditioning Installation
If you are planning to have a new residential air conditioning system installed, either as a replacement for an older system or as the first system in a new house, you have more options today than ever before. It’s important that you take time to consider seriously what type of AC you want for your home, since you will likely have the system working to keep your family cool for the next 15 to 20 years.
Fortunately, you don’t have to make the decision on your own. You should always work with professional HVAC installers, and they will guide you toward the ideal air conditioner to match your cooling and budgetary considerations.
Below are some of the options you have when it comes to new air conditioning installation.
Essentially, a heat pump is a type of air conditioner that has the ability to reverse the direction that it operates. It can both remove heat from a home a deposit it outside, or it can draw heat from outside and deposit it inside a home. With a heat pump, you have your needs for cooling and heating taken care of with a single installation.
Ductless air conditioning
For homes that lack the space for a large ventilation network, going ductless is a good alternative to the standard split system central AC. These ductless air conditioners are also an excellent choice for new home construction. Other benefits include better indoor air quality and increased energy efficiency.
Solar air conditioning
In a place like Phoenix, where the sun shines down most of the year, a solar-powered air conditioner is an effective money-saving option. Solar air conditioners use roof-mounted PV panels to capture the sun’s radiant energy and convert it into useable alternating current electricity for the air conditioner. Because the power of the sun is basically free, a solar air conditioning system will rapidly pay for itself.
