A functional air conditioning system can make your home's interior cool and comfortable when outside temperatures begin to climb. If you don't currently have access to a central air conditioning system, then you are missing out on the cooling properties these systems offer.
Toss out your fans and old swamp coolers and opt to install one of the following central air conditioning systems in the coming spring instead.
1. Split System
The most traditional type of air conditioning system is the split system. Components of a split system can be found both indoors and outdoors. The blower and evaporator coil are housed in an air handler that is installed inside your home. The condenser coil and compressor are located in a metal cabinet installed outside your home.
This split design allows the air conditioner to utilize outdoor air to cool your home. Indoor and outdoor components are connected via a series of refrigerant lines, ensuring maximum comfort throughout the warmer months.
2. Heat Pump System
There are specialized types of split system air conditioners, and a heat pump is one of these. An air handler is installed inside your home when you make the choice to go with a heat pump cooling system, while the pump itself is installed outdoors. The primary difference between a traditional split system and a heat pump system is the capabilities of each.
A heat pump can both heat and cool your home, while a split system requires an additional source of heat. You can opt for either an air or geothermal source of power for your heat pump system, making these types of central air conditioning systems among the most energy efficient.
3. Packaged System
You may have noticed large metal cubes on top of commercial buildings and some residential properties in your area. These cubes are probably packages central air conditioning systems. A packaged system contains all the components needed to cool your home in a single unit.
All components are installed outside your home, allowing you to keep as much open space within your home as possible. The small footprint of packaged systems makes them a great option for smaller homes or properties that are located in close proximity to neighboring buildings.
The right type of central air conditioning system will help you create a more welcome and inviting interior by keeping your home cool during the hottest months of the year. Contact air conditioning installation services for more information.
