What to Know When Installing a New AC

You need a good air conditioner to get through the summer season out here. So if you are in the market for a new AC unit or you are looking to ditch the window unit, it means you’ll need to take time to figure out which system is the right choice for your home.

When you are in the process of organizing an air conditioner installation in Killeen, TX you will need to figure out a few different factors. The first is who you want to go to for your installation service. The second is what system you want to install.

Our team can provide professional installation and help you select the best air conditioner for your needs.

Questions to Ask When Choosing Your AC System

There are several things you will need to figure out when choosing a new air conditioning system. Here are some questions that you’ll need to answer (which we can also help you with).

  • How much space do you have for the system? How much square footage is available for the physical indoor and outdoor units?
  • How much space do you need to cool? This is going to impact the “size” of your AC and takes into account your square footage, floors number of rooms, number of windows, etc.
  • Do you have ductwork already? If you have ductwork that is in good condition, the sky is the limit for your system choices. If not, there are ductless systems available.
  • Do you need a heater as well? It seems strange to be thinking about heating at this time of year BUT it is pertinent. This is because if you need a heating system as well as an AC unit, there are options that can provide both.

What your AC System Options Are

So, depending on what your answers are to the questions above, you may be able to better narrow down which system is the best fit for your home. Here are some of the options that you can choose from.

  • Central air conditioners: These systems are the standard option that many people think of when they picture an AC unit. These systems use ductwork to deliver the cold air they create and can come in different variations such as inverter systems or versatile systems.
  • Heat pump mini splits: Heat pump mini splits replace the indoor unit with an air handler and can provide cool air in an extremely efficient manner. These systems take up less space and can also provide your home with heat in the winter thanks to their ability to reverse their flow of refrigerant.
  • Ductless air conditioners: Lastly, you can also look into installing a ductless air conditioner, otherwise known as a ductless mini split. This is a type of heat pump that doesn’t require any ductwork to get the job done. Instead, you will have multiple air handlers that deliver cool air throughout your home (or warm air in the winter, of course).

Whether you know exactly what you are looking for or you need help narrowing down your options, you can come to us for service.
