With our A+ BBB rating and 5-star customer reviews in Yelp, Google and Yahoo, Airmakers would like to assist you in choosing the best AC unit for your home. The kind of model you’ll need for your house depends on a number of factors, but probably the most important is climate.
Fortunately, Bay Park is close enough to the ocean that it doesn’t get the extremes like many of the inland communities in San Diego County. The weather is usually pretty moderate, much like it is in Clairemont and Pacific Beach, it’s neighbors to the east and west, respectively. So let’s take a look at a few units that may be best for your home if you live there.
There are many types of cooling systems for your Bay Park home. Because of the moderate temperatures, you may not need a system as robust as they need in other parts of the county such as El Cajon, Fallbrook and Poway.
Central Air Conditioning usually incorporates a primary unit, which is located outside the building because noise is generated during the refrigeration cycles that cool the air and extract the moisture. A large blower inside the unit pushes air through ducts within the structure which will consistently cool the whole building. Although it sounds noisy, many of the units we use today are almost noise free and produce very little sound.
The home is generally fitted with return air ducts that pull air through filters, eliminating pollution and restoring indoor air quality. A by-product of this process is that by pushing air out of the building it eliminates excess moisture and heat.
Central AC cools homes evenly and quickly and can often be set to keep a consistent and ideal climate, keeping the entire home comfortable, even while temperatures outside your home skyrocket. The air filtration system pushes air throughout the home and is much cleaner and healthier for your family.
A centralized air product such as a heat pump can combine heating as well, providing a central unit that performs as an all-in-one heater and A/C system.
You cannot install central air conditioning yourself. You must call a licensed professional like Airmakers Heating and Air. Therefore, it is the most expensive AC unit available and installation will likely run a few thousand dollars. Call Airmakers Heating and Air at 858.530.1822 for an estimate.
Window Air Conditioners – single room units that fit nicely in a window of any room in your hose. They are economical, but very limited in the area they cool (one unit per room).
Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Units – The new kid on the block, ductless min-splits can cover more area than window units, are more economical and perform better overall. They still are not a good option for cooling an entire home, but their low price makes them a very affordable option.
Heat Pumps – As indicated earlier, heat pumps are an all-in–one system, producing both cool air during the summer and hot air during the winter. They are very common in households throughout San Diego and are one of our biggest seller. They require professional installation, but will save the home owner thousands of dollars throughout the life of the unit, which can be 20 to 25 years if the system is ENERGY STAR compliant.
Portable Air Conditioners – Portable units are fine for very small areas, but not effective for homes. We use portable AC units to cool small rooms or garages and perhaps even a tent while camping. Airmakers does not sell or install portable air conditioning units.
