Air Conditioning Varieties
With so many makes and models, it can be tricky to select the right air conditioning unit for your home. To make it simpler, we suggest making a list of must-haves. Are you looking for energy efficiency? Do you need it for the whole house or just one room? Are you interested in a standard or smart air conditioner? It may seem like a lot, but asking yourself these questions will only help you get to the answer quicker. Additionally, before taking home a brand new air conditioning unit, remember to properly measure out the dimensions of the room/window/available outdoor space to ensure you have the right size. Once this is completed, finding the right air conditioning unit will be much easier.
To help guide you towards the right unit, here’s a list of some of the most common air conditioning systems:
• Window Air Conditioner: A window air conditioner is one of the most popular options for homeowners who are looking to cool down a specific room. Typically, these units are installed in a built-in slot on the wall or through an open window. Regardless of the way it’s installed, window air conditioning units need to be sealed airtight–ensuring that not cold air escapes and hot air intrudes.
• Packaged Air Conditioner: A packaged air conditioner is an excellent option for those who are looking to cool down more than one room. This type of air conditioning unit is a single-unit setup and typically sits on the side of the house and the air flows through the ductwork. A packaged air condition can also fashion as a heater in the winter months. This is an option that offers versatility.
• Split Air Conditioner: A split air conditioner includes two units–one indoor and one outdoor. The outdoor unit is typically a free-standing unit and is placed at the side of the house. The indoor unit is much smaller than the outdoor and can either be installed on the wall or through a window. However, the indoor unit is much smaller than a window air conditioning unit, therefore, the size requirements for installation will be different.
These are just three types of air conditioning units that commonly installed in homes. However, there are a wide variety of air conditioning units that are conducive to specific residential home types. Once you have the right unit for your home, be sure to call Mid-State Air, Heating, and Plumbing for all of your installation and repair needs.
