Types of Cooling Systems

Mountaineer Mechanical Installs Various Types of Air Conditioning

When you’re looking to install air conditioning in your home, you probably already know the various types of cooling systems. You might have a window unit, but you’re looking to upgrade to central air conditioning. Homeowners have to consider how much they’ll use the air conditioning. In this blog, our experts at Mountaineer Mechanical are writing about the types of cooling systems, including:

  • Central Air Conditioning
  • Ductless Air Conditioning
  • Mini Split
  • Multi Split
  • Heat Pump
  • Window Units

Homes and Businesses Mostly Choose Central Air Conditioning

Central air conditioning is a popular option for many homes in and around Parkersburg, WV. It works in combination with furnaces to provide superior cooling throughout your home. This cooling system type is convenient because it uses existing ductwork, and provides comfort throughout your home. Refrigerant circulates your supply ductwork to remove heat from the air in your home. It then provides cool air throughout your home, not just in one room.

Ductless Air Conditioning Works for Homes Without Ductwork

Ductless air conditioning systems are perfect for homes and business establishments without ductwork. These systems can enhance a current cooling system without adding ducts to your home or building. They are also great ways to keep specific rooms cool. Mountaineer Mechanical’s technicians can install them anywhere, including bedrooms, kitchens, dens, living rooms, offices, and waiting rooms.

Mini splits Systems Provide an Alternative to Window Units

A small mini split provides an alternative cooling system to the window unit. There are many quality designs to a mini split system. They can control the air temperature in individual rooms.  They don’t, however, cool your entire home, and homeowners often use them for homes without existing ductwork.

Multi split Systems Can Cool Multiple Rooms

For those who want cooling in multiple rooms without having more than one outdoor unit, a multi split is ideal. A multi split system provides for individual room control, as well as being able to cool the entire home. One consideration to this cooling type is there are limitations on the length of refrigerant piping.

Heat Pumps Can Provide Heating and Cooling

Heat pumps provide both heating and cooling, which makes a good choice for any season. They can change the flow of refrigerant, so it can either heat or cool a home, making them versatile. What happens is air blows over an evaporator coil, transferring heat from the air to the refrigerant.
