Choosing the Right A/C for Your Rhode Island Home

Hot weather is right around the corner, and soon the dog days of summer will be here. You’re probably wondering the best way to stay cool this hot season, and you know that clunky old window unit isn’t going to get the job done. So, when it comes to air conditioning systems, you have two choices for your Rhode Island home: ductless mini-split air conditioning and central air conditioning systems. Both are excellent sources for keeping your home and family cool during the hottest days of the season, but it can be tough to narrow down the HVAC equipment that’s best for your home and budget. When it comes to choosing the right A/C system for your home, trust the experts at Hope Energy to lay out the choices and benefits of each.

Central Air Conditioning Systems

These air conditioning systems are perfect for homes that already have preexisting ductwork in the home from your heating system configuration. If your home already has ductwork, your central A/C installation could be half the cost compared to installing it in a home that doesn’t have ducts.

  • Enjoy even cooling distribution throughout your entire home
  • Unobtrusive vents won’t conflict with your interior décor or use of space (unlike conventional wall or window units)
  • Achieve maximum control of how much your cooling system operates with a compatible programmable thermostat
  • Choose among ENERGY STAR–rated models!

Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Systems

These systems are a great option if you don’t have ductwork in your entire home. Much more efficient than old window units, these air conditioning systems allow you to cool select rooms of your home at a time by individual zoning, or you can choose to cool your entire home. Whether you have ductwork or not, ductless mini-split A/C systems offer a full range of benefits.

  • Save money and energy with high-efficiency equipment
  • Don’t worry about having ductwork in place to achieve whole-home cooling
  • Control temperatures room by room
  • Enjoy quiet, effective operation for your comfort and convenience
  • Choose among ENERGY STAR–rated models!
