The Best AC Units for South Carolina

Charleston is well known for its humid climate with hot days and warm nights. Most homeowners in the city are used to having a central air conditioning system to keep them cool. And that’s for a very good reason: these cooling systems are great and proven to keep you super chilly even during the hottest summer months. But not every space in every home may have the proper setup and if you are looking for other options, we can tell you all about them.

Blanton & Sons can analyze your home and calculate the specific needs of the spaces in your home. From there, we can point you in the direction of some great air conditioning options.

Types of Cooling Systems

Central Air Conditioners: Central AC is “the standard” for homeowners across the country. These systems are great because they cool an entire building efficiently. They work on a split system with an outside unit and an inside unit. If your house hasn’t had updated air conditioner in 10 years, then it’s time to upgrade. A high SEER rating (Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) simply means you have a better system. Contact us to find out where you stand with your central air.

Heat Pumps: A heat pump is a climate control system that can heat and cool from the same unit. This central air conditioning system works just like an air conditioner when it cools but what separates this system from other systems is its ability to reverse the flow of the heat exchange and heat your home. If an energy-efficient system that’s easy on the earth and your wallet is important, then ask us if a heat pump is your best option.

Ductless Air Conditioning: Is the ductwork in your home ancient, damaged or has it built up with mold? A lot of older homes struggle with problems in humid climates like ours. If you are looking for an answer and don’t want to go the same route by replacing your ductwork, then maybe it’s time to go ductless. You can even “zone” your home with a ductless unit such as focusing more cool air in your bedroom or kitchen. At Blanton & Sons, we have been installing these “next-gen” air systems since they became popular in the states. Let us tell you more about ductless air with a mini split system.

Solar AC: What’s more abundant than sunlight? Sunlight is clearly known as the best renewable resource for your home. We can match your home with the best solar AC system available alongside with a battery and a backup electrical resource to power your cooling system.
