Whether you’re building a new home in Central Jersey or making a major heating and cooling upgrade, you may be wondering: what is the right HVAC system for my home? There isn’t a one-size-fits-all option for home heating and cooling, which is why there are multiple options.
Here are four of the most common systems and how to tell if they’re right for your home:
The most common type of central heating and cooling in the U.S. is the traditional air conditioner and furnace combo. These systems work well together because they share a blower motor. They also both rely on ductwork to distribute heated and cooled air. This could be the right HVAC system if ductwork is already installed in your home.
This unique piece of equipment can both heat and cool your home. It functions the same as an air conditioner in the summer and an AC in reverse during the winter. A heat pump could be the right HVAC system for your home if ductwork is already installed and electricity is your only fuel option.
Boilers work by heating water and sending it through radiators or baseboard heaters. This could be the right HVAC system if your home doesn’t have ductwork and you plan to keep cool with window air conditioning units.
Like mini heat pumps that mount to the ceiling or wall, ductless mini-splits can provide year-round heating and cooling. A built-in air handler means no ductwork is required. This could be a good HVAC system if your home doesn’t have ductwork and you want a more convenient cooling option than window AC units.
Deciding on the type of HVAC system to install is just the beginning. You must also consider brands, efficiency ratings, fuel type, system size, and more. The best way to ensure you end up with efficient, functional equipment is to collaborate with an HVAC contractor.
