When you’re considering installing new air conditioning in your Rockland, NY home, you want to know all about the different options available to you.

We offer a variety of home cooling solutions that can help you stay comfortable all summer long.
The Department of Energy offers information that can help homeowners in Rockland, NY uncover the best cooling products for different home scenarios. They discuss the different types of AC and what circumstances for which each is best suited:
- Central Air Conditioning: A central air conditioner will circulate cool air through your Rockland, NY home using a system of ducts and registers. Central air conditioning tends to provide the most even cooling throughout the entire home. If you have available ductwork, it can be a cost-effective choice for your home cooling needs. Central air conditioning is generally quiet and easy to operate, and is far more efficient than a window unit would be to cool your home. Today’s central air conditioning systems are much more energy conscious than their older counterparts, and modern AC uses a non-ozone depleting refrigerant that is better for the environment and allows your air conditioner to operate in a more efficient manner.
- Ductless Air Conditioning: If you have a space in your home that could benefit from cooling, but where ductwork is impossible or impractical, you may want to consider ductless, or mini-split, air conditioning for your Rockland, NY home. Ductless systems are mounted on a wall or on (or in) the ceiling, and provide homes without ductwork zoned cooling. Some systems function as both cooling and heating systems as well. They are very efficient and effective for all climates. They are simple to install, as your cooling technician will only have to make a small hole, rather than install ductwork throughout your home. Your system will be up and running quickly with minimal construction mess.
- Heat Pumps: Not only can a heat pump complement your furnace or boiler to help you stay warmer during the winter months, it can also provide you with the home cooling you need in your Rockland, NY home during the summer months as well. According to the Department of Energy, “heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer.” This means that that during the warmer months, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warmer outdoors. And, heat pumps are efficient – the DOE says they can provide equivalent space conditioning at as little as one-fourth of the operating costs of conventional cooling appliances.
