If you have experienced the blazing hot summer in Texas, you sure well know how brutal the heat can be, and an air conditioner is not a luxury on these sides but a necessity.
If you don’t have one, you’re due for a much-needed upgrade right now before summer season rolls in. It’s important to note that investing in a new air conditioner is a big deal. You need to consider which type of air conditioner will best suit you and your family’s needs.
Here are some of our top picks:
- Central AC systems
These can cool each room in your home simultaneously, they also work so quietly, and their energy efficiency ratings are great.
They are actually made of two units; an outdoor condensing unit responsible for generating cool air propelled by the second unit, which is the evaporative unit usually located next to the furnace.
The evaporator uses the furnace duct system to push the cool air throughout the home. However, not all homes are viable for a central air conditioner installation. You can only install this unit if:
- Your home is a new construction
- You’re considering a complete remodel, meaning tearing down walls
- You have already existing heat ducts
- Ductless Mini-split systems
These are perfect if you want the feel of a central AC without the hustle of ductwork. However, they are large and not hidden since you’ll have to mount them on your wall.
If you don’t mind its size and looking at it all year long, it’s a convenient unit since you can control the temperatures of each room instead of relying on a central thermostat.
As a bonus, the lack of ductwork makes it highly efficient since air doesn’t necessarily have to flow through your walls to get to your home.
- Window Air conditioners
These are self-contained units. As the name suggests, they are typically placed in a window; however, they can also be installed by creating a hole in the wall of an exterior room.
They are recommended for single-leveled homes and apartments. Their effectivity relies on the size; the bigger the unit, the cooler air it generates.
- Portable Air conditioners
As you guessed already, this is easily movable and can be wheeled into a room and placed in any position. They are just as efficient as the window units. So, if you don’t have a window to install a window unit AC, a portable AC is perfect.
Ultimately the best air conditioner heavily relies on your living condition, the size of your room, how much comfort you desire, and your budget.
