Helping You Choose the Right AC System for Your New Construction Project
Here’s more information on the types of cooling (plus combined heating and cooling systems) we can design and install on your behalf:
- Central air conditioning. While over 1,000 window air conditioners were sold in 1953 alone, central air systems didn’t become the norm in new home construction until the late 1960’s. Central air, in its most basic form, involves the process of cooling and dehumidifying air before it circulates it throughout a home or building through a network of ducts. The outside condensing unit uses refrigerant that is pumped by its compressor to move hot air from inside to outside the building. Then, a coil inside your home in the heat exchanger releases cool air, and thus the cycle repeats itself.
- Ductless air system. Ductless air systems are an excellent choice when adding conditioned air (heat and AC) to an existing room or new addition to your home. As the name implies, no ductwork is required. Instead, an outside condensing unit connects directly to one or more wall blowers that serve as heat (or cool) and distribute the air at the same time.
- Ground source (geothermal) heat pump. Ground source heat pumps rely on the sun’s energy to heat and cool your home, and generally are considered the most energy efficient home comfort system of all. They employ an underground system of pipes (called a loop) through which water circulates between your home and the heat pump to deliver heating and cooling efficiencies up to 600%.
- Air source heat pump. Air source heat pumps are electrically operated and use the difference in temperature between inside and outside your home to heat and cool it. This process takes the place of burning fossil fuels which leads to significant reductions in energy consumption and lower energy costs.
- Hydro-air system. This is another combination heating and cooling system. It includes a hot water boiler to provide heat by sending hot water from the boiler to an air handler which then distributes warm air into your home. The same air handler includes cooling coils to provide cool air during the warm-weather months.
