types of air conditioners

You turn on your air conditioner, but it doesn’t take you long to realize that your system has gone kaput. All the while, your home is starting to warm up, and the heat is unbearable.

Time for a new air conditioning unit.

The question is, what type of air conditioner should you choose for your home? Here’s a rundown on three different types of air conditioners you should know about before adding a new unit to your home this summer.

Let’s get started!

1. Types of Air Conditioners Include Split Systems

A mini-split system, also known as a ductless system, provides cooling to various zones in your home without the need for ductwork.

No ductwork is needed because this type of system has a heat pump or air conditioner outside that is connected to the unit inside your home. The inside unit handles the cooling that is pushed into it from outside.

With this type of system, you can easily control a single room’s temperature or the entire home’s temperature by controlling air handlers located in specific areas.

2. Heat Pumps

This split system allows cold air to move throughout your home in the summer. Then, it provides hot air when the weather gets chilly.

A popular type of heat pump is an air source pump. This type of pump releases heat from inside and into the outside during the summer.

Meanwhile, a geothermal pump — another option — releases your home’s heat into the ground to cool your home.

3. Geothermal Cooling Systems

A geothermal cooling system is another in-demand type of air conditioner.

This system, which features an underground loop, features a blend of water and refrigerant, or water by itself. This liquid transfers heat from the house into the ground during the summer. Then, cool water returns to your system to keep your home cool.

4. Zone Control Systems

This type of system is designed to cut down on arguments by allowing family members to enjoy different temperatures in various parts of the house. That’s because the system comes with multiple thermostats for various zones or rooms.

A major benefit of this system is that it can reduce your utility bills. After all, you can simply turn off your air conditioner to an area that will not be used on a given day. In addition, you can target particular areas that are hard to cool down, so the system can run longer in these areas but not in other areas.
