When the time comes to replace your old air conditioning unit, how can you determine which type is right for you? With over 2 decades of experience and some of the finest customer reviews of any HVAC professional, 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. Area, space, durability and budget are all necessary criteria. Most important, however, is the local weather and temperature range of the living area you want cooled.
Chula Vista is one of San Diego’s largest communities and with some of the recent development, it has become one of the most diverse as well. Temperature ranges vary almost as much as the unique neighborhoods so an HVAC contractor must be prepared with a variety of options for their customers. Given that diversity, let’s take a look at a few units that may be best for your home.
Central Air Conditioning is a method of cooling an indoor location in which a centralized component cools down and dehumidifies air before distributing it throughout the building. It 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.The structure, or home, is generally equipped with return air ducts that pull air through filters, eliminating pollution and restoring indoor air quality. The air conditioning unit also vents to the exterior, eliminating excess moisture and heat.
These are single units that fit into windows or holes through a wall in your residence; they are self-contained units that take air from the outside and force it into a individual room.
Going ductless could be an good choice for anyone who can’t afford a new central air conditioning system. Just like central air, the system is “split” into an outdoor condenser and an indoor handling unit. A conduit joins the two components. These types of units cool only one room at a time, much like window air conditioners and usually include a handy remote control to adjust settings.
Notwithstanding their name, heat pumps are a kind of central air conditioning unit that also incorporates heat. This is the all-in-one unit mentioned previously. It’s a mechanical cooling system that can be reversed to offer hot as well as cold air to a regulated room. The main housing of this split system is positioned outside and uses ductwork to pass on cold or hot air around your home. These units are our leading sellers due to their capacity to control temperatures and energy usage.
These will be your cheapest alternative for cooling, though they’re best used for small spaces and as temporary remedies. Not a practical choice for cooling large areas, portable air conditioners aren’t a bad alternative for small living spaces, garages on hot days or to provide temporary relief from the heat in small room.
