Choosing the Right Air Conditioner for Your Home

As Aledo, Texas, experiences increasing summer heat, there are several ways you can beat the rising temperatures inside. But picking the right air conditioner isn’t easy. Read on to learn which type of air conditioner will help you lower your indoor air temperature, improve energy efficiency and keep the air clean.

Central Air Conditioners

Central air conditioning systems are the most energy-efficient and provide the most cooling power. They’re the most effective mat getting cool air to every room of your home. They can also help improve your indoor air quality when you use HEPA air filters. Other than ductwork, these systems don’t take up any space inside. They’re also simple to operate. You can also add a programmable thermostat to this type of system to further increase cost savings and energy efficiency.

Ductless Mini-Splits

Ductless mini-splits can cool several rooms without the need to install additional ductwork or manage multiple window units. You may find these to be a cost-effective and energy-efficient option that can save you up to 30 percent on your energy bills.

You may also find that your indoor air quality improves with ductless mini-splits due to multi-stage filtration that can reduce the dust, bacteria and other particulates in the air.

Heat Pumps

Many Texas homeowners prefer the energy-efficient capabilities of heat pumps. Properly designed and installed systems can reach 300 percent efficiency. Heat pumps also combine cooling and heating into one system, which means they require fewer maintenance requirements than do two separate systems. Ground-source heat pumps are also better than air conditioners at dehumidifying your home’s air.

Cooling off your house isn’t easy, but researching the pros and cons of each unit can simplify the process. If you have questions about which unit is best for you, contact Performance Heat and Air at (469) 557-4455. We’ll help you evaluate your options and make the right choice.
