If you’re in the market for a new air conditioning system, there are a few things to consider: energy efficiency, performance, cost, and your overall cooling needs. There are many brands and different types of systems on the market today, and there is an increasingly attractive range of systems that save you energy and keep you cool. There are also auxiliary considerations such as zone control systems and thermostats. In this post, we’d like to review two of the most popular types: central air and ductless mini split air conditioning systems. The most important aspect of this process, however, is ensuring that your new air conditioner receives professional installation.

- Central air conditioning. This is the most popular type of air conditioning system in the country. Like other air conditioners, it is “split” between an indoor air handler/evaporator and an outdoor condenser/compressor. The lifeblood of the cooling cycle is a chemically designed refrigerant that offers much greater temperature fluctuation than ordinary water. This refrigerant is circulated by the compressor through the system of coils, where it removes the heat from your home, and sends cool air through an extensive system of ductwork.
- Ductless mini split air conditioning. As its name suggests, the ductless system does not use an extensive system of sheet metal or flexible ducts to remove hot air from and distribute cool air to your home. Instead, the compact air handler/evaporator sits directly in the living space, typically suspended high on the wall or recessed in a ceiling. These units connect to the outdoor unit by a relatively small group of refrigerant and electrical lines. They offer some unique benefits. For example, because of the design of the indoor air handler, they offer a built in system of zone control. Each of these air handlers (typically up to four per each outdoor unit) can be individually control, so that you can change the temperature in different areas of your home.
