In the event you are considering an air conditioning unit for your home in La Jolla, the best thing to do is to get in touch with an authorized HVAC expert. To determine the optimal unit for your home, you’ll want the guidance of someone who knows the industry. A good pro will consider every factor to figure out which is the appropriate unit for your home, including the environment and temperature fluctuations of your area.

With it’s location right on the coast, you wouldn’t think La Jolla residents had much need for air conditioning. Many homes don’t, but nonetheless, Airmakers crews seem to spend a lot of time there anyway servicing some of the older units. We also do a lot of HVAC change outs because the older air conditioning and heating units just don’t run as efficiently as the newer models and end up wasting a lot of energy for the homeowner.After one of our HVAC techs has finalized an assessment of your home, they will probably have a good recommendation for you for central heating and cooling, but necessarily. Not every home is alike and some of them have different heating and air requirements. Let’s take a look at a few of the different units.



Central Air Conditioning

Central air is an approach of cooling an inside area in which a central component cools and dehumidifies air before disbursing it through the building. Generally, the air will be produced by an exterior unit fitted with a blower or fan that pushes cool air all through the household.A system of air ducts is fitted through the entire household with filters which clean the air as it circulates. The outdoor unit and the interior ductwork make central air a “split” process. The air conditioning unit also vents to the exterior of the building, removing excess heat and moisture.

Is going with a central air conditioning unit an intelligent choice for La Jolla residents?

Certainly, there are a lot of advantages of centralized air. It can cool your house evenly and quickly and will often be regulated to sustain an even and desired temperature, keeping your home comfortable, even while outdoor air temperatures increase. Since the main component is positioned outside the house, the indoor noise level is quite a bit lower than other air conditioning units.

Enhancing Indoor Air Quality

Because of its air filtering process, air throughout the home is considerably cleaner and healthier for you and your loved ones. A central air system will likely merge heating as well, making you’re system an all-in-one heater and air conditioner.

Installation of Your Air Conditioning Unit

The problem with central air conditioning could be that it requires the help of a reliable HVAC contractor to set up. You cannot install this system on your own. Because of this, it is the costliest air conditioning alternative for your home and installation is likely to run a few thousand dollars.To get a quote, contact Airmakers at 858.530.1822 for some of the best prices for La Jolla residents.

Window Air Units

Window air conditioning units are single systems that fit inside window openings or holes through a wall in your home.They’re self-contained devices that draw air from the outside and force it towards a specified room.

A Better Option for Regulating Just One Area

Window Air Conditioners are typically much cheaper than central air. Their price varies from $100 to $300 or more, but they can’t cool more than one room at a time. If you have lots of rooms to keep cool, several units can get costly. It is possible to put in window air conditioning units yourself, but it will usually require an HVAC expert depending on the system and its location.

Easy to Use

Once set up, window units are usually quite easy to use. Nearly all models even come with a remote control device. Getting every room at the right temperature is the difficult part. Since each room has to be adjusted individually, it can be a challenge going from room to room setting air temperature.Window air conditioners usually do not integrate home heating selections. You’ll have to find another option for the cold weather such as a furnace, portable radiator or space heater.

Ductless Mini-Split Systems

Ductless mini-split air conditioners can be excellent alternatives for anyone who cannot afford a central air conditioning system. Like central air, the unit is “split” into an outdoor compressor as well as an indoor handling unit. A conduit links the two components. These systems cool just one area and generally come with a handy remote control to change settings.

Convenience and Uncomplicated Installation

The installation of ductless mini-split models is comparatively easy and does not need extensive duct work. You may require the help of an HVAC contractor depending on how extensive your requirements are. They might not be ideal for large homes, but could be a good option for room additions.Ductless mini-split systems are cheaper than central air units, but more expensive than window air conditioners. Some units are as cheap as $300 while full systems can be as high as $3000.

Heat Pumps

Despite their name, heat pumps are a kind of central air conditioning that also incorporates heat. This is the all-in-one application cited above. It’s a mechanical refrigeration technique which may be reversed to either heat or cool a monitored space. The principle housing of the split unit is placed outdoors and utilizes ductwork to send hot or cold air throughout your home.

Heat Pumps Work Well for La Jolla Residents

Heat pumps are our best sellers in La Jolla. Their ability to manage temperatures all year long along with their energy saving characteristics make them an attractive solution. As a central cooling system, heat pumps necessitate the help of an HVAC contractor for installation. With parts and labor, you’ll likely invest a few thousand dollars on these units, depending on the size of your house. Airmakers installs a lot of heat pumps in La Jolla and our pricing is among the lowest in the business. Call us at 858.530.1822 for an quote.

Portable Air Conditioners

Portables are the least expensive air conditioning units on the market. They’re more compact and more light weight, but pack a reasonably powerful punch for their size. You can purchase them at many hardware and big box outlets and will likely run between $100 and $300.

Think Twice, La Jolla

Because they do not cool a large area very well and use a lot of energy, it’s hard for us to endorse portable air conditioning units. We don’t see them as a practical solution if you need to cool a complete home.
