It is essential to factor in the climate and temperature range of the local community when putting in a new air conditioning unit – and Pacific Beach may be San Diego’s most moderate climate. It may not get too hot, but the age of some of the homes make many of the current units inefficient and costly. If you still need a new furnace, air conditioner or heat pump, a professional HVAC contractor will be a priceless resource for your groundwork and may discuss with you several of the following solutions:



Central Air Conditioning

The most popular cooling system for Pacific Beach homes, central air conditioning is a type of cooling method that circulates cool air through an entire structure such as a home or office. It usually incorporates a principal unit, which is located outside of the building because noise is created during the refrigeration cycles that cool the air and remove the humidity. A significant blower inside the system drives air through ducts in the structure that can evenly cool the whole building.The structure, or residence, is generally equipped with return air ducts that draw air through filters, removing contaminants and enhancing indoor air quality. Excess heat and moisture is also removed through vents which lead outdoors.

Is a central air conditioning solution a sensible way to go for Pacific Beach consumers?

There are many benefits of centralized air. It is the best approach for cooling a complete house and temperatures throughout the home can be controlled from one location. Noise levels are lowered substantially as well since the primary unit is situated outside the house.

Breath Clean Air

Due to its air filtration process, air in the home is considerably cleaner and healthier for you and your loved ones. Though we will get into later, a centralized AC unit commonly incorporates heating as well, providing an all-in-one solution.

Having an HVAC Company Put in Your Air Conditioning Unit

We will not call it a disadvantage, but you will not be able to set up your system on your own. You’ll need the help 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.Airmakers are Pacific Beach veterans and our prices are among the most affordable in the area so phone us at 858.530.1822.

Window Air Units

You most likely notice these units more than any other heating and air system. That’s because they are very noticeable as they project from home windows.These units require no duct work and use very little wiring.

Less Expensive than Central Air

These units are generally much cheaper than central air. Quality units can range from $100 to $200, but usually only cool a single area. If you have a lot of rooms to keep cool, purchasing a lot of units can get costly. It is possible to put in window air conditioning units yourself, but it will usually require an HVAC technician depending on the system and its placement.


Once hooked up, window models are simple to use. A lot of systems even come with a remote control device. The problem is trying to regulate an entire house. Due to the fact each room needs to be adjusted separately, it can be a challenge going from area to area changing air temperature.Window air conditioners do not provide heat features. You’ll need to find another option for the winter such as a furnace, mobile radiator or space heater.

Ductless Mini-Split Systems

Ductless air conditioners have gotten increasingly popular and is an excellent choice if you’re on a tight budget. Just like central air, the system is “split” into an outdoor compressor as well as an indoors handling unit. A conduit links the two components. These units are great for cooling one room and come with a remote control.

The Advantage of Ductless

The main benefit of ductless is that they do not require the extensive duct work and installation of of a central cooling system. If you’re not very mechanical, you may require the assistance of an experienced HVAC contractor to install these units. Dutless systems are ideal for retrofitting projects and room additions.Ductless mini-split solutions are cheaper than central air units (usually), though more expensive than window ac units. A few models are as low as $300 while full systems can be as high as $3000.

Heat Pumps

Despite the name, heat pumps are a kind of central air conditioning which also incorporates heat. This is the all-in-one system mentioned above. It’s a mechanical refrigeration system which can be reversed to either heat or cool a controlled space. Since it involves broad duct work throughout your home as well as an outside production unit, heat pumps are viewed as a split system.

A Reliable Choice for Pacific Beach Homeowners

These units are our best sellers due to their performance and capacity to regulate temperature. Heat pumps have all the same benefits of other central cooling systems and require the assistance of an HVAC contractor for installation. With parts and labor, you will typically invest a few thousand dollars on these units, based on the size of your house. Call Airmakers for an estimate at 858.530.1822. We’ve got some of the best pricing in the area on heat pump installation.

Portable Air Conditioners

This is your cheapest option for in-home cooling. Though very small as opposed to other air conditioning units, these units can output plenty of cool air if used in a small area and can be used in any room that has an outlet. You can buy them at hardware and big box retailers and will likely run between $100 and $300.

Think Again, Pacific Beach

Portable air conditioners normally use a too much electricity and will add considerably to your energy bill, especially in June through September. We do not consider them as a sensible method if you want to cool a complete home.
