What Are My AC System Options?

In last week’s blog post, we shared with you some signs that indicate you may need a new air conditioner. Your instinct may be to go out and replace your system with a newer version of what you already have. But are you aware of all your options? While one type of AC system may work great for one person, your home and your family may have different needs. We’ve listed various AC system options below, to help you make an educated decision.

Central Air Conditioning

Still one of the most popular choices for air conditioning today, central AC is ideal if you already have ductwork installed in your home. This allows for whole-home cooling rather than you relying on window units and/or ceiling fans, which don’t have the capability to efficiently cool your home by themselves.

Heat Pump

Heat pumps are among the most useful types of cooling systems in Sugar Land, TX, given the relatively mild winters we experience. Similar to a traditional AC unit, a heat pump circulates refrigerant between two sets of coils, one inside and one outside. The refrigerant absorbs heat from one set of coils and releases it through the other, reversing the process in the winter to provide you with year-round comfort.

Ductless System

As the name implies, a ductless system uses no ductwork. Similar to a heat pump, a ductless system can cool your home in the summer and warm it in the winter, making it an efficient and versatile choice. This system is idea for a home that is small in size, taking up minimal indoor space.

Dual Fuel System

A dual fuel system is a two-in-one cooling and heating system. A heat pump, while it is a very efficient HVAC system, has its limitations with very cold temperatures. So, a furnace would be needed. A dual fuel system gives you the best of both worlds, switching from the electric heat pump to the gas furnace automatically as needed.
