When it comes to new air conditioning installation there are many options available. Homeowners should consider which option is best for their home before making the plunge. Certified technicians will be able to help you decide which unit is best for you after visiting your home and finding out your cooling needs.
A popular installation choice is the central unit. This type of unit can be expensive but is well worth the money. A central air conditioning unit will cool your home and newer models are now more energy efficient to help save you money while helping the environment.
This unit has two parts: one on the inside and one on the outside. The outside portion is connected to the inside via a series of ductwork which will push the air throughout your home. On the inside of your home you will have a return which will hold your air filter. The air filter filters the air to keep the air quality in your home fresh and healthy.
A central air unit uses a thermostat so homeowners can set the temperature in the home. With this option, homeowners will be able to choose the coolness of their home which is a great luxury. With this type of installation, homeowners can add items such as a programmable thermostat to be able to set the temperature in the home while they are away. This is an added expense but will help homeowners save money as they can program the thermostat to turn up during the day while they are at work or just out of the house.
The central air option is great for homeowners who have any type of home but especially for older homes. This option cools the entire house instead of just individuals rooms like the option we will discuss next.
The next option is room by room cooling which comes in the form of a window or wall air conditioning unit. This unit is a small box type option which can be placed in a window or on the wall. This option cools individual rooms and is very cost effective. This option is good for homeowners with small homes or those who need to install a unit that will cool just one room or a small area. This option is also good for those who do not have the funds to install a full central unit option.
