How to Pick the Right Air Conditioner for Your House 

Building a new house? Upgrading your current equipment? Regardless of why you’re looking for an air conditioner, you may quickly learn you have more possibilities than you first thought. Follow this information to help you measure four different kinds so you can find the best air conditioner in Hilton Head Island. 

Central Air Conditioning 

This is what most people bring to mind when they imagine air conditioning for the total home. Central air conditioning moves air to every room with a system of ducts and registers. 

This might be great for you if: 

  • Your house has ductwork. 
  • You already have a furnace or air handler. 
  • You’re looking for nearly silent, convenient air conditioning. 

Air-Source Heat Pump 

In warm weather, heat pumps operate much like central air conditioners. Some models can also deliver heat when it’s cold. 

This could be ideal for you if: 

  • Your house has ductwork. 
  • Your home is in a location with temperate weather during the winter. 
  • You’re looking for one piece of equipment for full-year heating and cooling, in lieu of a regular furnace and air conditioner. 
  • Your house doesn’t have (or you don’t need) natural or propane gas. 
  • You’re looking for quiet, energy-efficient heating and cooling. 

Geothermal Heat Pump 

The ground below your feet remains at an even 55 degrees throughout the year. A geothermal heat pump uses this continuous supply of energy with underground loops for fantastic heating and cooling efficiency. 

This might be ideal for you if: 

  • Your house uses ductwork. 
  • You desire one piece of equipment for energy-efficient heating and cooling. 
  • You have ample land around your house for the buried loops. 

Ductless Mini-Split 

This is an additional kind of heat pump. With ductless mini-splits, an outdoor unit connects to an interior blower unit mounted to a wall or ceiling. This doesn’t call for any ductwork and keeps your windows protected. 

This might be good for you if: 

  • Your house, or an immediate expansion to it, doesn’t include ductwork. 
  • You’re looking for an energy-efficient approach for heating and cooling separate spaces. 
  • You’re seeking to install zoning in your house.
