Central Air Conditioning

Central air is a procedure of cooling an internal area in which a common component cools and dehumidifies air before distributing it throughout the building. It always incorporates a principal unit, which is situated outside of the building because noise is created throughout the refrigeration cycles that cool the air and eliminate the humidity. A substantial blower inside the system drives air through duct tubes in the structure that can evenly cool an entire building.A system of air ducts is fitted throughout the household with filters that can clean the air as it circulates. The outside unit and the household ductwork make central air a “split” process. The air conditioning unit also vents to the outdoors, eradicating excess moisture and heat.

Is choosing a central air conditioning unit a very good choice for Camp Pendleton residents?

Certainly, there are a lot of benefits of centralized air. It can cool a home evenly and quickly and will normally be controlled to hold an even and desirable temperature, keeping your home comfortable, even as outdoor air temperatures increase. Noise levels are minimized greatly as well since the principal unit is located outside.

Better Air for You and Your Family

Because of its air filtering system, air in the home will be a lot cleaner and healthier for your family. Though we’ll get into in a bit, a centralized A/C unit commonly integrates heating as well, delivering an all-in-one solution.

Having an HVAC Company Put in Your Air Conditioning Unit

We will not think of it as a disadvantage, but you will not be able to set up your system yourself. You’ll need to hire an authorized HVAC professional. After you include parts and installation, a central air conditioner will probably be your most expensive option for Air conditioning.To get a quote, call Airmakers at 858.530.1822 for some of the best prices for Camp Pendleton homeowners.

Window Air Units

Window air conditioners are usually simple systems that fit within windows or holes through a wall in your home.They are self-contained units that draw air from the outside and force it towards a specified room.

A Better Option for Just One Room

Window versions provide a much more affordable option for those on a budget. Their cost varies from $100 to $300 or more, but they can’t cool more than a single room at a time. If you have lots of rooms, multiple units will get expensive. It is possible to install window air conditioning units yourself, but it will usually require an HVAC professional depending on the system and its location.

How easy are window air conditioners to use?

Once set up, window units are usually quite simple to use. Many units even come with a remote control device. Trying to get every room at the perfect temperature is the hard part. Contrary to central air, which can be adjusted from one thermostat in your home, each window unit in each room has to be turned up or down separately.Compared with central air conditioner units, you won’t get the all-in-one cooling and heating with these systems. You’ll have to find another option for the winter months such as a furnace, portable radiator or space heater.

Ductless Mini-Split Systems

Ductless air conditioners are getting to be more popular than ever and is an excellent choice if you’re on a tight budget. Just like central air, the system is “split” into an outdoor condenser and an indoor handling unit. The two parts are linked by a conduit that only takes a small 3 inch hole unlike the full window opening or large hole of a window unit. These units are good for air conditioning just one room and come with a handheld remote control.

The Pros and Cons of Ductless

The advantage of ductless is that they do not require the broad duct work and setting up of a central air conditioning system. You may require assistance from an HVAC specialist depending on how wide-ranging your preferences are. They may not be suitable for large homes, but can be a good option for room additions.Ductless mini-split models are cheaper than central air units (usually), though more expensive than window air conditioners. An effective mini-split unit might run between $300 and as much as $3000, depending on the location being cooled. Like window units, ductless systems will not incorporate a heat element.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are the all-in-one system mentioned earlier. They give you cold air in the summer and warmth in the winter. It’s a mechanical refrigeration technique which can be reversed to either heat or cool a regulated space. The primary housing of the split unit is installed outdoors and utilizes ductwork to disperse hot or cold air throughout your household.

A Fantastic Alternative for Camp Pendleton

Heat pumps have proven to be our greatest sellers in the Camp Pendleton area. Their ability to manage climate over summer and winter along with their energy saving characteristics make them a wonderful choice. Heat pumps have got all the same benefits of other central cooling models and require the help of an HVAC contractor for installation. With parts and labor, you will likely invest a few thousand dollars on these units, based on the size of your home. Contact Airmakers for an estimate at 858.530.1822. We’ve got the best prices in town on heat pump installation.

Portable Air Conditioners

Portable units are the least expensive air conditioners available. Though they’re very small as opposed to other air conditioners, these units can output plenty of cool air if applied to a small area and can be put in any room that has a power outlet. You can get them at most hardware and big box outlets and usually run between $100 and $300.

Is this really the best choice for Camp Pendleton residents?

Portable air conditioners normally use a lot of energy and can add considerably to your power bill, especially during June through September. We really do not see them as a sensible alternative if you want to cool an entire home.
