Without a functional air conditioning system in your home, surviving the summer months would be next to impossible. That’s why it comes as no surprise that a lot of people are wondering if the air conditioning unit in their home is the best for them.
Whether you’re moving into a new home or planning to improve your old one, its important to know the different types of AC Unit. With this, you can determine which is best for your home before inviting AC installation professionals.
This type of AC unit features one big compressor that pumps cool air to every room in the house via a ducted system. The compressor would be located outside and vents would be located at strategic points within the home. They are a good option for people living in relatively new houses. If you’re living in an older house, retrofitting a central air unit could be incredibly difficult. Plus, the installation cost could prove expensive.
Ductless Mini Split System
This type of AC unit is not as expensive as central air. If you are unable to install central air, perhaps due to a lack of space or difficulties installing a ducted system, the ductless mini-split system would be a smart choice. The unit is highly efficient and there’s the added advantage of being able to control the temperature of each room.
Window Air Conditioners
This AC installation does not require permanent modifications such as installing ducts of cutting walls. This makes the unit the perfect choice for renters. The unit is quite efficient but can only work for a small space. You’d need multiple window units for a house with more than one room.
Portable Air Conditioners
This type of AC unit is the least efficient when it comes to cooling and temperature control. However, it could still be a good choice for renters who do not stay in a place for too long. You should also consider the unit if your window cannot support a window air conditioner.
