A good air conditioning unit can come in virtually any shape, size, color or brand. Airmakers Heating and Air is among several outfits that frequently provides HVAC services to Bonita homeowners and we have installed air conditioning units for virtually every problem. The type of model you’ll need for your residence depends on many factors. Area, living space, durability and budget are all important variables.

The climate and heat variances of your region also play a major role.Bonita, for example, can get pretty warm in the summer so a good air conditioning unit is important to residents there. Because of the variety of homes, there are all sorts of units and so an HVAC contractor needs to be familiar with the different systems. Given the average temperatures of Bonita, let’s review some systems that could be right your home.



Central Air Conditioning

Central Air Conditioning is a way of cooling an indoor space in which a central element cools down and dehumidifies air before circulating it throughout the structure. It usually includes a principal unit, which is usually placed outside of the building since noise is generated during the refrigeration cycles that cool the air and removes the humidity. A large motorized inflator inside the system pushes air through ductwork within the structure that can equally cool the whole building.The structure, or house, is normally equipped with return air ducts that pull air throughout filters, removing pollution and boosting indoor air quality. The air conditioning unit also vents to the outdoors, removing surplus moisture and heat.


  • It has the ability to cool a home evenly and quickly and can usually be controlled to sustain a consistent and desirable temperature, keeping everything comfortable, even while outside air temperatures fluctuate.
  • Considering the fact that the primary unit is located outside the house, the indoor noise level is much lower than many other air conditioning units.
  • On account of its air filtration system, air flow in the home is much cleaner and healthier for your loved ones.
  • A centralized air device can combine heating as well, making the unit an all-in-one heater and A/C unit.


  • The downside of central air conditioning is it demands the assistance of a capable HVAC specialist to install. You cannot place it yourself.
  • Therefore, it’s the most expensive air conditioning unit for your household and installation will probably run a few thousand dollars. Call Airmakers Heating and Air Condtioning at 858.530.1822 for an estimate.

Window Air Conditioners

Window Air Conditioners are single units that fit into windows or holes through a wall in your residence; they are self-contained devices which pull air externally and force it into a specified room.


  • Window Air units are typically less expensive than central air conditioning. Good quality systems can vary from $100 to $200, but they usually only cool an individual room.
  • After installation, window brands are extremely easy to use. Current models usually come with handheld remote control.


  • If you have a lot of rooms, multiple units could get costly. It’s possible to fit window air conditioners yourself, but be prepared for help because it mght require an HVAC technician depending on the model as well as its placement.
  • Window air conditioners really do not feature heating solutions. For heat, you’ll have to look at space heaters or furnaces.

Ductless Mini-Split Air Conditioning Units

Going ductless is an great option for someone who can’t afford a new central heating and air system. Just like central air, the system is “split” into an outside compressor/condenser and an indoor handling unit. A conduit joins the two components. These models cool only one room at a time, very much like window air conditioners and in most cases come with a remote device to alter settings.


  • The benefit of ductless is that they will not require the considerable ductwork and installation of a central cooling system, nor will they need a window or large hole like window air conditioners. A ductless mini-split system ordinarily only needs a 3 inch hole to attach the inside unit to the exterior compressor, which can be up to fifty feet away. These kind of units are great for retrofitting jobs and room add ons.
  • Ductless mini-split systems are less expensive than central air conditioning units, although more expensive than window air conditioners. A quality mini-split unit will normally run between $600 and as much as $3000, depending on the location being cooled.


  • Mini-split units are only able to cool just one room in your home so if you have a lot of rooms, installation and operation are going to get expensive.
  • Dealing with temperatures in every room will be time consuming and difficult.
  • Similar to window versions, ductless systems will not integrate a heating element.

Heat Pumps

Despite their name, heat pumps are a variety of central air system that also incorporates heat. This is the all-in-one system mentioned previously. It’s a automatic cooling system that can be reversed to either heat or cool a regulated living space. The main housing of this split system is situated outdoors and makes use of ductwork to pass on hot or cold air through your home. These units are our greatest sellers due to their ability to control temperature ranges and energy usage.


  • Heat pumps offer similar features of other central cooling units.
  • These systems could be very efficient when it comes to energy use while delivering powerful output for either hot or cold air flow.
  • Current models are now efficient at regulating individual room temperatures.


  • Heat pumps will run a few thousand dollars for full set up and installation, but it depends on the area you need regulated.
  • Heat pumps are required to be put in by an experienced HVAC contractor. Call Airmakers for a quote at 858.530.1822.

Portable Air Conditioners

Portable AC units will be your cheapest option for home cooling, even though they’re best used for small rooms and as short-term remedies. Not a practical choice for cooling sizeable areas, portable air conditioners may not be a bad alternative for small additions, garages on hot days or to provide short-term relief from the heat in small room.


  • Though very small in comparison to other air conditioning units, portable units can yield a lot of cool air.
  • Portables are small, lightweight and can be positioned in virtually any room with an outlet.
  • Systems like this are usually available at many hardware and big box outlets and typically run between $100 and $300.


  • They generally use up a lot of power and may add significantly to your energy bill.
  • They are not an efficient solution if you want to cool a large house.
