Living in the Northwest we wait a long time for the arrival of warm weather and want to make the most of it. As temperatures start to climb, having an effective cooling system provides more than just temperature control. Being able to keep windows closed defends against safety risks, exterior noise and air contaminants.
Did you know that 75% of the homes in America have air conditioning? The most common type of system pairs an exterior air conditioner with an interior air handler or furnace, which works in tandem to circulate cool air throughout your home. Matching your air conditioner with a compatible air handler or furnace will generate optimum efficiency and ideal system performance.
If you want air conditioning and have a gas furnace you can still take advantage of the energy saving you get with a heat pump. Known as a dual fuel system it will alternate between the electric heat pump and the gas furnace based on outdoor temperature for maximum efficiency and comfort. During the heating season the electric heat pump is used if the outdoor temperature is above 40 degrees. (85% of the time) When the temperature drops below 40 degrees the gas furnace kicks in when it becomes the most efficient option. During the summer the heat pump switches to air conditioning to keep you cool.
Gaining popularity is the mini-split style system. These systems do not require ductwork and are an excellent choice for homes with radiant floors, hydronic and electric baseboard or wall heaters and remodels. Whichever system you have installed, make sure to verify that the system recommended covers not only your heat gain load but also that your currency or new duct system is properly sized, if required.

Ductless Air Conditioning
What is referred to as “Ductless Mini Split Air Conditioning Systems” do not rely on ducts to distribute treated air throughout the building. This makes them ideal for rooms where adding ducts is impractical, such as a garage or exercise room. Ductless systems are ideal for homes with radiant floor heating, as they are far less expensive to install. Both ductless and a central forced air systems are referred to as split-systems, with an indoor air handler or blower unit and an outdoor condenser unit. With proper design and installation either option will provide cool comfort all summer long.
