Different Air Conditioner Systems in Texas
You have several options for choosing an air conditioning system for your home in Texas. Whether you are looking to install an air conditioner for the first time or need a replacement, the experts at ABA Austin are there to help. Not sure if your current unit needs to be repaired or replaced? Please read our article for some helpful tips. Here are examples of common air conditioning systems for homeowners in Texas:
Central Air Conditioning Systems
Central air conditioning systems are common in residential homes and are sometimes called ducted systems. Central air conditioning is controlled by a thermostat communicating with the system inside and outside the building. Central air conditioning uses ducts to pass air from the outside, which is cooled, filtered and then blown back into the home through the ducts. This system is quiet, effective, requires minimal maintenance, and can keep your home at a consistent temperature year-round. If your home in Texas does not have existing ductwork, you’ll need duct installation to use a central air conditioning system.
Heat Pump Systems
Heat pump systems are also referred to as hybrid systems, split systems, or dual-fuel systems. Hybrid air conditioning systems can heat and cool your home. This kind of split system is energy efficient and powered by electricity. A heat pump system will pull in heat during cooler months and push warm air out during warmer months. This kind of air conditioning system makes managing the temperature in your home in Texas simple.
Ductless Mini Split System
A ductless mini-split system does not require ductwork, as the name suggests. This kind of air conditioning system works similarly to central air conditioning systems. The blower will suck air from a room, cool it and absorb moisture, and then blow the cooled air back into the room. Mini-split systems are quiet, efficient, and use limited space. These systems are usually installed on walls in individual spaces, not meant to control the temperature of an entire home.
Packaged Air Conditioning Systems
Packaged air conditioning systems are very popular. These cooling systems include all heating and cooling components in a single unit. These units are usually installed outside the home, but compact designs can be installed in a smaller interior space, like an attic. These units work as alternatives to split and hybrid-split systems, are relatively low-maintenance and suitable for warmer climates.
