Central AC, Heat Pump, or Mini Split Installation?

When it’s time to replace or install an air conditioning system, you’ve got a big decision to make. Not only do you need to choose which type of system to get, but once you narrow that down, you need to decide on a make and model. We understand how important these decisions are which is why we want you to know what your options are.

Installation day is the most important day in the life of an AC system. So no matter what system you choose, let us be the HVAC company that installs it for you. Our NATE-certified technicians embrace our motto of “Bringing comfort to America, one home at a time.” That means we focus on our customers for every HVAC Service in Lawrenceville, GA we provide. 

Central Air Conditioning

Central air conditioners remain the most popular system across the US. In Georgia, homeowners often choose central AC because these systems can quickly and powerfully cool down a home. 

The efficiency of a central AC system is measured by its SEER2 rating. Here in Georgia, the minimum rating for our region is 14.3. However, SEER2 ratings go much higher. Although a system with a higher SEER2 rating will cost more, you’ll save money on utility costs for as long as you own the system. The lifespan of central AC units is 10-15 years.

Not only will we install your new air conditioner perfectly, we can also help fit you with the right type of air conditioner. We can recommend the top-of-the-line brands within your budget. Next, we’ll assess your home to make sure the system is sized correctly. We can even evaluate your ductwork to make sure it’ll be a great support system for your new central AC. After all, your system relies on ductwork to deliver the conditioned air throughout your home.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are a great option for homeowners who are looking for an all-in-one HVAC system. Heat pumps rely on refrigerant to provide heating and cooling. A component called the reversing valve allows a heat pump to easily switch between heating and cooling modes. 

Heat pumps use electricity and are considered extremely energy efficient compared to central AC. That’s because they simply transfer heat instead of generating heat. Just like with central AC systems, heat pump efficiency is measured by SEER2 for cooling.

Ductless Mini Splits

Ductless mini splits are also heat pumps. However, the only difference between the two systems is that they don’t require ductwork. When central AC isn’t right for your home, a ductless system is a great alternative. 

Ductless mini splits can solve a number of issues for homeowners with older homes with problematic ductwork that would render a ducted central AC or heat pump ineffective. Because they don’t use ductwork, they’re ideal for homeowners who are concerned about poor indoor air quality.

Ductless systems also provide amazing customization with the ability to change the temperature in a single zone or room in your house, adding to their already low energy consumption.
