Since we’re already well into the summer season, we hope that you are equipped with a functional and efficiently operating air conditioning system. However, if you fear you’re in need of a replacement system—or if you know you’re getting a new air conditioner soon—there’s no time to waste. Rushing into a purchase though, can leave you stuck with a cooling system that doesn’t meet your needs, for 10-15 years.
We want to help you make an informed decision about your next AC system purchase. Keep reading to learn more about our Nichols Hills, OK cooling system options and what they mean for you!
Central Air Conditioners
Let’s say you’ve been getting by with window units for now, or perhaps you already have a central air conditioner but it has aged to the point that it no longer works efficiently. Investing in a high-efficiency central air conditioner can be a great option for you.
Central AC systems come with immense energy savings over portable or window units. And by having it professionally installed by experts who are specifically trained in this kind of work, you can rest assured that it will be well matched for your home and will keep you cool for the years to come.
There are a number of benefits to utilizing a ductless system. First off, as the name implies, they don’t require ductwork. This is great if you have a home that won’t accommodate the installation of ductwork, or even if you just don’t want to pay for air ducts to be put in your home.
Ductless systems also solve a common indoor air quality problem. Ducted systems invite allergens like dust and pollen, and even mold and mildew, into your home. This is a threat to your health and overall comfort.
Heat pumps are very similar to conventional central AC systems. They have all of the same parts, and a few extra. Just like central AC, they use refrigerant to transfer heat out of your home to the outside. So, what makes them different?
You can also use them for heating during the winter—that’s right, a heat pump is a two-in-one system ideal for year-round comfort. Ask us too about our dual fuel systems for winter—this combines the efficiency of a heat pump with a backup furnace to ensure that you stay comfortable and save money all year long.
One of the most energy efficient resources there is out there is the ground beneath you. Geothermal cooling—and heating!—systems use an underground loop to provide heat that starts the refrigeration process for both cooling and heating. It’s an investment, but one that pays off over time.
Variable Air Flow Systems
Last, but certainly not least, we have to mention the variable air flow system. A variable-speed blower fan enables the fan within your air conditioning system to run at half speed instead of shutting off, so your home can stay within 1-2 degrees of the thermostat setting without using as much energy as it normally would, thus keeping you cooler at a lower cost.
