What Are My Air Conditioning Options?
Living in Florida, air conditioning is our best friend. But when looking to buy a new air-conditioning system, which one is right for you? When it comes to air conditioning, there are numerous ways that we can cool our homes. From window units to central air conditioning, learn about just a few of the options, here:
Window units are a viable option to provide cool air to your home. Window units are situated in a window of your home and contain the important parts—the compressor, condenser, expansion valve and more—all in one box. While window units can cool your home, they do come with certain disadvantages. Because the cool air is dispersed from one location, the cool air will be in that location and only that local, meaning, if you want your entire home to be cool, you’ll need multiple window units. Another disadvantage of window units is that they can be noisy since they are located partially inside.
Wall units are relatively similar to window units, except they are positioned on a wall rather than in a window. Wall units can be complicated because they have to be mounted into a hole in the wall. This requires drilling a hole in the wall and avoiding pipes, wires, and the like. While this may seem like a disadvantage for some, one advantage of wall units is that they provide significantly more cooling power than window units.
A ductless air conditioning system provides cool, conditioned air without the intricate series of ductwork. Instead of ductwork, hoses run from the inside of your home to a condenser unit outside. Ductless systems are a good option for those who live in hot regions (ahem, Florida) and are looking to cool a larger area in their home. Ductless systems provide the most central-AC-like cooling power.
Central Air Conditioning
While there are lots of other cooling options out there, central air conditioning typically takes the cake. While having a central air conditioning system installed may seem expensive now, it will provide the most comfort for your money. Central air conditioning systems contain a unit, which is located outside of your home. A series of ductwork to deliver cooled air to each room, and a thermostat inside to control the comfort settings. Overall, central AC touts serious advantages including superior comfort control, little to no noise level, and more.
