Should You Upgrade to a High-Efficiency A/C System?

Are you suspicious of your current A/C system? Do you ever feel annoyed about high energy bills or that your A/C repair person has become your best friend? Then, before the warmest months hit us here in Pennsylvania and Delaware, it might be time to consider upgrading to a new, higher-efficiency system. Below, we break down some of the biggest benefits of upgrading and give you a rundown of which A/C system might work best for you.

Benefits of Upgrading Your A/C System

Newer, high-efficiency A/C systems are designed to keep you comfortable while also saving you money. They do this by using less power and cooling your home with a more advanced power management system. This means your home stays cool year-round while your energy bill goes down. There are additional benefits too:

  • Fewer visits from the repair person means reduced maintenance costs.
  • More consistent performance and comfort.
  • Efficient energy use is better for the environment.

If those benefits sound good, then the next question is which kind of new system would be best for you.

Central Air Conditioning vs. Ductless Air Conditioning

Central and ductless air conditioning are two of the most common types of A/C systems. Each offers its own set of benefits. We’ll get started with central air.

If your home already has ductwork in place for your heating system, adding central air is a breeze. Some of the key benefits of central air systems are:

  • Complete, even cooling distribution throughout your entire home
  • Seamless integration with your heating system’s ductwork
  • Compatibility with programmable thermostats for maximum control
  • Many ENERGY STAR® rated models available

If your home isn’t already set up with the ductwork needed for central air, ductless A/C systems offer a ton of benefits without the same hassle associated with traditional window A/C units. These systems can save you the hassle and expense of having to add any ductwork. They also come with some other substantial benefits, such as:

  • Compact, discreet, and adaptable for any living space
  • Great for homes with or without ductwork
  • Individual zoning to better control your cooling room by room
  • Quiet, effective operation
  • Highly efficient with ENERGY STAR® ratings
