Here at GRmetro Heating and Cooling Inc., we install a variety of great air conditioning systems, and below, we have highlighted a few of our favorites. All you have to do is keep reading to find out more, and yes, remember to call us for your AC services in Grand Rapids, MI. 

Let’s Get Started!

There are plenty of great air conditioning options to choose from. Here are a few of them:

Central Air Conditioners

When you hear the word “air conditioner,” the first image that likely pops into your head is that of a central air conditioner. These are by far the most common option in residential cooling. These forced-air systems are reliable, efficient, and quite effective. Central air conditioners rely on a network of ducts to circulate cool, conditioned air all over your home, so if your home currently has ductwork in place, a central AC might be your best option.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are becoming quite popular for their ability to provide year-round comfort with just the flip of a switch! Heat pumps work much like a standard AC, relying on the flow of refrigerant to keep your home cool. But unlike a standard AC, a heat pump comes equipped with a reversing valve. This valve is used to reverse the flow of refrigerant, allowing for home heating in addition to cooling! Heat pumps come in both ducted and ductless models, so no matter the layout of your home, there is a heat pump for you!

Dual Fuel Systems

A dual fuel system is the combination of an electric heat pump and a gas furnace. Heat pumps are super effective at providing year-round comfort, however, they can become significantly less efficient when the weather becomes a bit too extreme. When temperatures become too cold, the furnace will automatically kick on, as it becomes the next, most efficient option. As the temperature rises, the heat pump no longer needs the assistance of the hybrid heating system, so the furnace will shut off and the heat pump will take over again.

Call in a Professional!

When the time comes to schedule your air conditioning services, make sure that you hire a professional. Only a professional HVAC technician has the training and experience to match you with the air conditioner that is going to best meet your unique comfort and budget needs.

And yes, while there may be plenty of amateurs willing to help you find the AC of your dreams, don’t let them! You see, sometimes an attempt to save money could end up costing you much more in the long run! It is always better to call in a pro and get the job done right the first time around.
