Surviving the hot periods without a functional air conditioning system is next to impossible. And a lot of Americans share this sentiment. According to Energy Star, the typical American household spends 13% of her annual utility bill on cooling. If you’re looking to buy an AC unit for your home, you must make the right choice from the beginning. Here is a quick summary of the different types of units you can hire a professional AC installer to help you fit in your home:
Central Air Conditioning System
The central system is ideal for large homes with multiple rooms. However, you’d require the full service of AC install professionals. They have to break walls to install the cooling ducts and vents. This may be difficult to achieve if you’re living in an older house.
Window Air Conditioners
They are small, light, and relatively inexpensive but the capacity of even the largest window units is usually limited to less than 700ft. If you have a bigger room, you’ll be better off considering other options. Plus, they can only cover one room at a time.
Split Ductless AC Units
They are more expensive than window units, they can cover a larger area of space, and their installation process does not require opening up walls, unlike central air systems. They are the perfect choice for homes with a few rooms.
Portable Air Conditioners
These are perfect for homes whose window configurations or building regulations do not support installing window or central units. Unfortunately, they are often noisy and they do not achieve effective cooling.
Factors to Consider When Choosing an AC unit

- Score on the noise test
- Location of your window
- Location of filter
