High Velocity Air Conditioners
A high velocity AC is an excellent choice for homes that lack sufficient room for large ducts, and they also supply cooling that’s extremely energy-efficient and effective. These systems use small ducts and high-pressure airflow that distributes cooling rapidly throughout a room.
The standard heat pump that hooks up to a ventilation system is a great option for replacing an old air conditioner because it solves two problems at once: it delivers cooling and heating using the same process. Heat pumps use less energy in heating mode than most electric and gas furnaces and boilers, and they provide a great way to lower your bills while keeping a home comfortable throughout the year.
Ductless Mini Splits
This is another choice that works well for homes that lack room for ducts. But they are also excellent for remodeling, new home construction, or if you have concerns about indoor air quality. Instead of using standard ducts, ductless mini splits use individual blowers distributed throughout a home to send cooled air directly into rooms. You receive the power of a central AC with the point-cooling ability of window units. They can also be installed as heat pumps.
People sometimes think that geothermal power is only useful for heating. It’s not true! A geothermal heat pump can also supply a home with cooling at a level even more effective and efficient than a standard air conditioner. Geothermal systems also have immense longevity—and they aren’t as arduous to install as you may imagine.
