What Are My Air Conditioning Options?


We totally understand that finding the perfect air conditioner for your home can be a tad overwhelming. There are just so many great options to choose from, so how do you know which is going to be best in your home?

To make things a bit easier for you, we have listed some of our favorite air conditioning systems down below. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more, and then to call us for your air conditioning installation in Killeen, TX.

Let’s Get Started!

Here are some of the awesome systems we offer here at Alltek Services Heating & Air Conditioning:

Central Air Conditioners

When you hear the word “air conditioner,” the first image that likely pops into your head is that of a central air conditioner. These are by far the most common option in residential cooling. These forced-air systems are reliable, efficient, and quite effective.

Central air conditioners rely on a network of ducts to circulate cool, conditioned air all over your home, so if your home currently has ductwork in place, a central AC might be your best option.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are becoming quite popular for their ability to provide year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch! Heat pumps work much like a standard AC, relying on the flow of refrigerant to keep your home cool. But unlike a standard AC, a heat pump comes equipped with a reversing valve. This valve is used to reverse the flow of refrigerant, allowing for home heating in addition to cooling!

Heat pumps come in both ducted and ductless models, so no matter the layout of your home, there is a heat pump for you!

Ductless Systems

Ductless systems, as the name implies, are air conditioners that do not rely on a network of ducts, making them a great alternative for homes that do not have the space for ductwork. Instead, these systems rely on one outdoor condenser unit and multiple indoor air handlers to deliver cool air to your home.

And, because ductless systems are a type of heat pump, they work as both a heater and an air conditioner, allowing for year-round comfort!

Evaporative Coolers

Unlike a central air conditioner, which uses refrigerant, an evaporative cooler simply uses water evaporation to cool your living space. This type of cooling requires much less energy than a traditional air conditioning system, making it a cost-effective, efficient, and affordable option for homeowners!

Ask a Professional First!

When the time comes to schedule your air conditioning services, make sure that you hire a professional. Only a professional HVAC technician has the training and experience to match you with the air conditioner that is going to best meet your unique comfort and budget needs.

And yes, while there may be plenty of amateurs willing to help you find the AC of your dreams, don’t let them! You see, sometimes an attempt to save money could end up costing you much more in the long run!
