Types of Air Conditioning Units

There are two main types of air conditioning available in New Port Richey - conventional air conditioner systems and ductless central air conditioning units. A conventional air conditioning system works by drawing hot, humid air into return ductwork, cooling and dehumidifying it and returning it into the room. Central air conditioning units can be split, meaning there is a condenser/compressor unit outside and an evaporator unit inside, usually mounted on the furnace or an air handler. Ductless central air conditioning units work using an outdoor compressor that serves individual units that contain an evaporator and blower fan. These are usually placed on the top half of a room's exterior walls. The units are large, but relatively unobtrusive. It is often more expensive than a conventional unit, but homeowners can save a lot of money by not having to have their homes fitted with ductwork. As opposed to window units, a ductless system is quieter, doesn’t block your view and will also heat the home.

Size Matters

If you get a central air conditioning unit that is too big, your house will be damp and cold and it will cycle on and off too much. If it's too small, it will not be able to keep up and could freeze. A lot goes into determining the size of the air conditioning unit: size of the home, number of stories, insulation, number and quality of the windows, amount of direct sunlight and even the amount of shade your home gets. Collectively, this is called a cooling load analysis. Our air conditioning New Port Richey services can help you determine what size is right for your home.

Efficiency: Today’s low-efficiency units are as good as high-efficiency central air units made just 10 to 12 years ago. With the price of energy skyrocketing, it’s a great time to replace an old unit. You could save 30 to 50 percent on cooling costs and reduce your home’s environmental footprint.

Filter: If you have a family member who suffers from allergies or asthma, air quality is important. Look for an AC unit with a high Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value.

Price: You can expect to pay a lot for central air conditioning. The price can be anywhere from $3,500 -$7,000, depending on a variety of factors, including the size of your home, what needs to be done and the efficiency of the model you choose. If you need ductwork installed, it can run $8,000-$10,000 or more. Just remember that the expense is so worth it in the long run!

  1. Our experience has always been positive with customers and their feedback on central air conditioners by
    Carrier. Generally customers are extremely pleased with the product, and the real pay off usually comes
    in the long run, with Carrier units being extremely durable! Carrier air conditioning units also tend to
    be extremely energy efficient, with their least efficient model.

  15. Air conditioners are required in order to maintain a cool temperature in your home during summers. Nowadays they have become a necessity instead of a luxury. Air conditioners are now seen everywhere for example; in shopping malls, educational institutions and automobiles etc.
