We’ve been servicing La Mesa homeowners for many years. If you want a new air conditioning unit, we’re the ones to ask. With the diversity of homes in the neighborhood, there could be several different types of air conditioning units suitable for your needs. Lets have a look at the most common.

Airmakers Heating and Air will help you figure out which is the best unit for your home. Your technician will consider all the elements of your home, your needs, the climate and your budget to get you the perfect fit.

In addition to having some of the best prices for air conditioning installation in the county, Airmakers central cooling systems maximize output without maxing out your energy bill.



Central Air Conditioning

Central air is an approach of cooling an interior area in which a common unit cools and dehumidifies air before circulating it within the building. Normally, the air is generated from an exterior unit fitted with a blower or fan that drives cool air all through the house.A system of air ducts is fitted within the household with filters that will clean the air as it circulates. The outside unit and the indoor ductwork make central air a “split” system. Excess heat and moisture will also be extracted by way of vents which lead outdoors.

Why You Should Choose a Central Air Conditioning Unit for Your La Mesa Home

Certainly, there are numerous benefits of centralized air. It is the most effective way for cooling an entire house and temperatures all through the house can be controlled from one location. Since the primary component is situated outdoors, the indoor noise level is significantly lower than other air conditioning units.

Clean Air for Your Loved Ones

The air moving from the ducts and through the filters render cleaner air for your family. A central air system will include heating as well, making you’re system an all-in-one heating component and AC system.

Use a Skilled HVAC Contractor

We aren’t going to call it a disadvantage, but you will not be able to put in your system yourself. You’ll need the aid of a professional HVAC professional. After you add parts and installation, a central air conditioning unit will probably be your most expensive alternative for AC.To get a better idea of the cost, contact Airmakers at 858.530.1822 for the best prices for La Mesa residents.

Window Air Units

You probably notice these units more than any other heating and air system. That’s because they are very visible as they project from home windows.They are self-contained systems that extract air from the outside and force it into a particular area.

Less Expensive than Central Air

Window units provide a much more economical choice for those on a budget. Quality units can range from $100 to $200, but generally only cool one area. For those who have lots of rooms, purchasing a lot of units will get expensive. Small window units usually can be set up by anyone, but large, heavy units might require an HVAC specialist.

Ease of Use

Once fitted, window units are very simple to use. Virtually all models even come with a remote control device. The difficulty is trying to regulate an entire residence. Contrary to central air, which allows all rooms to be adjusted from a single location in your home, every window unit in each room has to be turned up or down individually.Unlike central air conditioner units, you won’t get the all-in-one cooling and heating with these systems. To enable heat, you’ll need to look at space heaters or separate furnaces.

Ductless Mini-Split Systems

Ductless air conditioning units have gotten more and more popular and is a good option if you’re on a budget. Like central air conditioning, the unit is “split” into an outside compressor/condenser and an indoor handling unit. The two parts are connected by a conduit that only requires a small 3 inch hole unlike the entire window opening or large hole of a window unit. Dutless systems cool just one room and always come with a handheld remote control to change configurations.

The Advantages of Ductless

The advantage of ductless is that they don’t need the intensive duct work and installation of of a central air conditioning system. You may require the aid of an HVAC specialist depending on how intensive your preferences are. They might not be well suited for large homes, but can be a good option for home additions.Ductless mini-split models are cheaper than central air units (usually), though more expensive than window air conditioners. Some units are as low as $300 while full models can be as high as $3000.

Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are the all-in-one application mentioned earlier on this page. They provide cool air during the summer and heat in winter. By applying reversed air flow, the unit can produce either cold or hot air, based on the direction of the flow. The primary housing of the split system is placed outside and makes use of ductwork to send hot or cold air through your home.

This might be the best preference if you reside in La Mesa.

Heat pumps are actually our best sellers in La Mesa. Their ability to regulate climate over summer and winter in addition to their energy saving features make them a great choice. As a central cooling application, heat pumps necessitate the help of an HVAC contractor for installation. They will run a few thousand dollars for installation, based on the size of your household. Airmakers installs many heat pumps in La Mesa and our pricing is among the best in the business. Call us today at 858.530.1822 for an quote.

Portable Air Conditioners

This is your least expensive option for cooling. They’re more compact and more light weight, but pack a rather powerful punch for their size. You can purchase them at hardware and big box outlets and will run between $100 and $300.

Not Really a Top Solution for La Mesa Homes

Mobile air conditioners often use a lot of electricity and will add significantly to your power bill, especially during June through September. We don’t see them as a handy method if you need to cool a complete home.
