Should You Install a Central AC or a Heat Pump?


It is important to make sure you have a trustworthy air conditioning system when you live around here. If you don’t have an air conditioning system that can keep your home cool throughout the summer just yet, it is a great idea to contact us to discuss an AC installation in Raleigh, NC. Our team can offer you great options for efficient AC systems and provide the installation services you need to ensure the installation is done right.

When you are in the process of finding a new air conditioner for your home, you should consider all of the available options. We can help to install central air conditioners or heat pump systems. Here’s some information on these options to help you choose between them.

When to Consider a Central AC Unit

Are you looking to install a central air conditioner in your home? If so, you will be glad to know that they are extremely effective and efficient options. Central air conditioners are incredibly efficient nowadays, especially compared to 10 years ago.

These systems are a great match for anyone who is looking to get regular temperatures throughout their entire house. They are also ideal for anyone looking to invest in a ducted system or someone who already has one ducted system in the house, such as a furnace.

Central AC units are pretty powerful overall, so if you are hoping to get a strong cooling system, this may be the ideal option.

When to Opt for a Heat Pump

Central systems aren’t your only option, of course; heat pumps are another possible system you can consider.

Heat pumps work similarly to central AC systems through the use of heat transfer. However, they are able to do so with a little bit more efficiency than central systems are. They also take up less space in your home because of their setup.

Heat pumps may be an ideal fit for anyone who is looking to save some space and save a little more money when cooling their home. What’s more these are great for anyone who needs an air conditioning system along with a heating system. This is because heat pumps can reverse their flow of refrigerant to warm the home as well. Heat pumps can operate with the use of ductwork or they can also work as ductless heating and cooling systems (a.k.a. ductless mini split heat pumps).

If a central air conditioner is not the right fit for your home a heat pump likely is.  

Why Rely on Professional Installation

Whatever system you select, you need to make sure that it is installed by a trained professional technician. Only someone with the appropriate training and expertise is going to be able to perform this vital service properly in order to provide you with the comfort you need. We can work with you to get your best possible AC system selected for your house.
