Here in Orlando, air conditioners are vital. While people come here for vacations to enjoy our scorching hot summer temperatures and moist humidity levels, they can be overbearing for those of us that live here. Trying to get through a year here without an air conditioner would be a feat of extraordinary resilience, which is why our company gets as many calls as it does!
However, oftentimes it’s not repairs we’re called for, but new installations. Homeowners want the same old central air conditioner year after year, and even though there are amazing new systems on the market that could be better for their home, people just aren’t informed enough to make that decision. That’s where we come in!
Today, we’re going to talk about the different types of systems to invest in when it comes to HVAC in Orlando, FL. From ductless systems to the standard central air conditioner—there’s a cooling solution for every type of home.
Central Air Conditioning: The Gold Standard
We’re going to start off with the most obvious choice of central air conditioners. We know they’re nothing special, but they get the job done. Many homeowners don’t want to learn about the newest technology on the market, or the most expensive, high-efficiency systems they could use, because they just want something that works.
We absolutely get that mentality. Many homes have the right amount of ductwork and a heating system that’s in good condition, so a central AC is an obviously optimal choice. If a central air conditioner has worked just fine in the past, then it’s fine to stick with this system for your next installation.
Heat Pumps: Comfort Every Season
If you’re one of the few homeowners in our area that isn’t well-versed on the subject of heat pumps, then we’re very excited. Heat pumps are an incredible cooling system that can become a year-round comfort system for homes that need a heater and an air conditioner.
Heat pumps work similarly to central air conditioners. They use refrigerant to transfer heat from the inside of your home to the outside, cooling things off during the summer. However, there’s a major difference that makes heat pumps such sought after machines—they can reverse the flow of refrigerant and draw heat into your home.
If you’ve been following with us so far, that reversal of refrigerant means you’ve got access to a heater during our mild Orlando winters. Want to kill two birds with one stone this year by purchasing both a heating and cooling system in one? Dive into heat pump technology by calling us!
Ductless Heat Pumps: Versatile and Efficient
Heat pumps can run with your existing air ducts, but there are heat pump systems that don’t need ducts! Ductless heat pumps, or ductless mini splits, can heat and cool a home using air handlers instead of a ductwork air distribution system. These systems are so convenient, that you can customize which rooms they’re installed into so that certain rooms are warmer or cooler than others.
These are some of the most efficient, effective, and versatile heating and cooling systems on the market. They work incredibly well, so if you’re looking to invest in heat pump technology but were afraid that your home’s lack of ductwork would be a dealbreaker, call us today!
