Choosing Your Next Air Conditioner


You don’t want to try to get through a summer in our area without a good air conditioner to rely on. So if your AC has been acting up without any improvements, despite maintenance and repairs, it may mean it is time to consider an AC replacement in Farmington, NM. Getting this service ahead of time, before the system completely breaks down, is a far better choice than waiting for it to give out.

Getting a new air conditioner isn’t always as easy as just selecting the same system that you had before. Technology has changed rapidly and the options available for AC systems today are somewhat different than they were 10-15 years ago. To help, we’d like to give you some input on different factors to consider when choosing a new air conditioner.

Ducted or Ductless?

Do you have ductwork you’re tired of battling with? Or perhaps you are just ready to try a different type of system. You can choose a ducted system, such as a central AC or heat pump, or a ductless system.

Ductless systems involve a set-up that uses multiple air handlers installed throughout the home to keep things cool. These are handy to choose for homes with bigger temperature discrepancies or homes with ductwork that they cannot keep up with anymore.

Regulated or Customized?

Are you looking to have a home with the same temperature throughout the area? Or aree you hoping for a little customizability?

If you would want to have a system that can cool one or two parts of the house but not the others, then you might consider a ductless system or even a zone control system. These systems allow you to cool certain areas more or less than others.

However if you want a blanket temperature throughout the house then a central AC is still a great choice.

Only AC or Cooling and Heating?

Are you only on the hunt for a new ait conditioner? Or has your heater been giving you trouble lately too? If you are looking at replacing your AC and your heater, you may find a simple solution in the installation of a heat pump system, which can both heat and cool your home. These systems can be ducted or ductless too so they are a great fit for a good number of homes.
