When it comes to heating and cooling our homes, there are so many choices of equipment on the market.
They range from primitive devices like box fans and space heaters to more complex ones like heat pumps and geothermal HVAC systems.
So, it’s hard to decipher which one is the best for your home. Prior to investing in a heating and cooling method for your house, you will need to determine the size of the machine needed to properly keep your home comfortable. If the HVAC unit is too big or too small for your home, you will have issues keeping it comfortable. Once you determine the size of the unit based on the square footage of your house, you can select the HVAC unit that will work for you. If you currently have no central air conditioning installed then you already have ductwork in your home, so you should consider getting one of the HVAC units that require the use of ductwork. If you don’t have ductwork, installing it can become an expensive task, so it’s best to consider getting a ductless mini-split system. Ductless mini-split systems are becoming more popular because they are easier to install and are more efficient than the typical HVAC unit. A ductless system has two main components: an indoor air handler and an outdoor condenser as well as drain and refrigerant lines. Some units come with up to 4 air handlers, which allow you to cool multiple areas in your home. But the best part about the ductless mini-split system is that they are cheaper than the traditional HVAC unit and they will save you money on your energy bill because of how efficient they are.
