What Kind of AC Works for You?

Let’s take a second to fix a misconception that you might have about air conditioning. Stop worrying about whether or not you’ve got an air conditioner that works, and start thinking about whether it works for your home. What we mean by this is that all cooling systems are not as equal as you might think.

For instance, a central air conditioner that’s brand new in a home with faulty, leaky ductwork is never going to work well. Homeowners might think about having it constantly repaired or replaced, but unless your ductwork is addressed, the problem is never going to get better.

It’s time to change your perspective. What if we told you that an air conditioning installation in Palm Bay didn’t need air ducts to keep your home cool? If you’re scoffing at that sentence, or you’re starting to revert back to “well, my central AC still works,” then keep reading.

Thinking Outside the Box

When you think of “air conditioning,” what is the first thing that comes to mind? Is it the central AC system you’ve always been using? Is it the nice breeze you feel on a hot summer day that wafts in through your air vents? While these all might be nice things to remember, they’re not the whole story. There are air conditioning systems that don’t function conventionally, but that are perfect for some homes. If you don’t even recognize that they exist, then you’re not getting a fair shake. Let us explain the different kinds of AC systems.

Consider a Ductless Mini Split

Did you notice the word “ductless” above? No, there’s no catch and it’s not a joke. There are air conditioners that function without ductwork, meaning the cooled air comes directly from the system into your home. Ductless air conditioners are not only a wonderfully effective alternative for cooling without air ducts, but they’re also extremely efficient as well. This efficiency makes them better for a lot of homes than a standard central AC system.

Ductless mini splits are also heat pumps. This means they can work to cool your home during the summer and heat it during the winter. The cooling process can be reversed into a heating process, which is especially convenient during our mild winters here in Florida!

Look at Your Options

You don’t just have to decide between a central air conditioner and a ductless mini split. We also perform installations for systems like heat pumps that can work with ductwork to provide heating and cooling year-round. There are also inverter air conditioners, which are central AC systems that have multiple different modes of cooling. That means you’re getting a much more efficient cooling system that knows when to slow down or speed up depending on your home’s temperature.

What we’re basically telling you is this: don’t pigeonhole yourself. Remember that there are other alternative cooling solutions for homes in our area. You don’t need to sign up for a decade’s worth of “mediocre” cooling because it’s what you’re used to. Call us today to explore all the different modes of cooling and to see which one is right for you.
