Leucadia is a great, laid back community that we enjoy working in very much. We’ve installed our share of HVAC systems there over the years and many of our crew take their surfboards with them on their jobs. If they finish early enough, they’ll head to Beacon’s for a quick surf before their next job. That’s the Leucadia lifestyle. If you want a new air conditioning unit, we’re the contractor to ask. Below are some suggestions.



Central Air Conditioning

The standard cooling system for Leucadia properties, central air conditioning is a form of cooling method that circulates cool air through a complete structure such as an office, store or home. Normally, the air will be generated from an exterior unit fitted with a blower or fan which drives cool air all around the residence.A system of air ducts is fitted within the home with filters that will clean the air as it circulates. The exterior unit and the indoor ductwork make central air a “split” process. Excess heat and moisture is also extracted by way of vents which lead outdoors.

The Case for a Central Air Conditioning Unit for Your Leucadia Home

We believe a central air unit is an excellent option. It is the most effective way for cooling an entire house and temperatures throughout the house can be regulated from one location. Because the central unit is positioned outside the house, the indoor noise level is a lot lower than other air conditioning units.

Improving the Quality of Your Indoor Air

Because of the air filtering system, air within the home is significantly cleaner and healthier for you and your loved ones. Though we will go into in a moment, a central air system often combines heat as well, giving you an all-in-one solution.

Work with a Skilled HVAC Company

We will not consider it a disadvantage, but you will not be able to install your AC unit yourself. You’ll need the aid of a professional HVAC specialist. As a result, it is the most expensive air conditioning product for your home and set up is likely to run a few thousand dollars.To get a quote, call Airmakers at 858.530.1822 for the best prices for Leucadia homeowners.

Window Air Units

You probably see these units more than just about every other heating and air system. That’s because they are so apparent as they protrude from the side of some Leucadia homes.They are self-contained devices that extract air from the outside of the home and force it towards a particular area.

Great for Just One Area

Window air units are generally a lot less expensive than central air. Their cost varies from $100 to $300 or more, but they can’t cool more than a single room at a time. For those who have a lot of rooms, multiple units can get expensive. It is possible to install window air conditioning units yourself, but it will likely require an HVAC expert depending on the system and its location.

Ease of Use

Once fitted, window units are quite easy to use. Many units even come with a remote control device. The problem is trying to regulate an entire residence. As opposed to central air, which can be adjusted from one location in your home, each window unit in each room must be turned up or down separately.Unlike central air conditioner units, you won’t get the all-in-one heating and cooling with these systems. For heat, you’ll need to look at space heaters or separate furnaces.

Ductless Mini-Split Systems

Ductless mini-split air conditioners can be exceptional selections for anyone who cannot afford a central air conditioning system. Like central air conditioning, the unit is “split” into an outside condenser and an indoor handling unit. The two elements are linked by a conduit that only needs a small 3 inch hole unlike the whole window opening or large hole of a window unit. These systems cool only one area and typically come with a remote device to change settings.

The Main Benefits of Ductless

The installation of ductless mini-split air conditioners is relatively basic and doesn’t involve extensive duct work. You may want the aid of an HVAC contractor depending on how detailed your needs are. Dutless systems are great for retrofitting projects and room additions.A ductless unit can be very inexpensive if you have only a small area to regulate and if you know how to put it in yourself. A few brands are as cheap as $300 while full units can be as high as $3000.

Heat Pumps

In spite of their name, heat pumps are a form of central air conditioning that also produces heat. This is the all-in-one application cited above. It is a mechanical refrigeration technique which may be reversed to either heat or cool a controlled space. Mainly because it requires extensive duct work throughout your home as well as an external processing unit, heat pumps are considered a split system.

A Good Solution for Leucadia Residents

Heat pumps have been our best sellers in the Leucadia area. Their ability to manage climate all year long in addition to their energy saving qualities make them a wonderful choice. As a central cooling application, heat pumps necessitate the help of an HVAC contractor for installation. With parts and labor, you’ll usually spend a few thousand dollars on these units, depending on the size of your home. Contact Airmakers for an estimate at 858.530.1822. We’ve got some of the best prices in the area on heat pump installation.

Portable Air Conditioners

This will be your least expensive choice for in-home cooling. They’re more compact and more light-weight, but pack a rather powerful punch for their size. You can buy them at hardware and big box outlets and usually run between $100 and $300.

Not an efficient Choice for Leucadia Homeowners

Since they don’t cool a large space very effectively and use a lot of power, it’s hard for us to advise portable air conditioners. We don’t see them as a sensible alternative if you want to cool a complete home.
