Tired of dealing with the summer heat and want air conditioning in your home? If so, you have a few options to pick from that will get the job done. Here are some reasons to get central air conditioning over your other options.
One thing that can't be beaten with central air is the overall comfort in your home. When you use other cooling methods, it is not going to evenly cool your home. Window units, ductless units, and heat pumps will all work best in the rooms that they are installed in. If you want to cool down your entire home, it is just not possible to make every part of your home comfortable. Central air conditioning evenly distributes the cool air to your entire home and, when it reaches your desired temperature, cycles the air conditioner on and off to maintain the temperature. It helps product overall comfort that can't be beaten by other cooling methods.
Another nice thing about using central air conditioning is improved air quality. All air going through your vents must pass through the unit's air filter, and it helps remove all the dust and allergens in your home. If you want to decrease the humidity of the summer, you can use a dehumidifier to remove water from the air before it is pushed out through the ductwork. You may be surprised at just how well central air conditioning can actually improve air quality.
Any unit that has the blower in the room you are occupying is going to be loud. You'll find yourself having to compete with the loud noise of the unit by turning up your television or talking louder so others can hear you. This is due to the compressor being located outside your home and the mechanical unit for the blower being located out of the way in your home's basement, garage, or a closet. Since it works so quietly, you won't even be able to tell it is running and producing cold air for your home.
If your home already has a furnace that used ductwork, adding air conditioning to it should be a very simple process. That is because you can use all of that ductwork for the air conditioning as well, minimizing the potential labor involved if all new ductwork was necessary. This should help cut down on labor and lead to a fast installation.
