What Type of Air Conditioner Is Best for Your Home?

Looking to invest in a new air conditioning system? Learn more about the different types of air conditioners available to you and your family.

Types of Air Conditioners

  • Central – Central AC units circulate air throughout your home by using a system of ducts. It provides the most even cooling and if you already have duct-work in place, it can be a cost-effective option for your home.
  • Room – This is the most popular type of air conditioning system. It provides spot cooling and can be either placed in a window or used as a portable unit.
  • Ductless Mini-Split – Mounted onto a wall, this ductless, mini-split air conditioner provides zoned cooling to a room without the ductwork.
  • Evaporative Cooler – An evaporative cooler cools outdoor air by using evaporated water and circulates it throughout the house.
