Last week we looked into making the decision to replace or upgrade your air conditioning system during the spring. If you think that now is a good time to put in a new AC or add upgrades to your current one, we’ve put together some suggestions to consider. Call our technicians to schedule an appointment, and we’ll help you receive the finest air conditioning performance for the coming spring and summer weather.
Packaged units are heating and air conditioning systems that are housed inside a single cabinet, which is different from the standard split system with an outdoor condenser and indoor evaporator. Packaged units are the most common type found in commercial buildings (usually housed up on the roof). However, these systems are sometimes useful for homes, especially when there isn’t sufficient room indoors for the evaporator. We’ll help you discover if a packaged unit is a good option for your home.
Ductless mini split systems
If you want to forgo ductwork entirely (often as part of a home remodel), then you should consider a ductless mini split. These comfort systems have both indoor and outdoor components, like standard split systems, but instead of a single indoor unit they use multiple smaller air handlers mounted in different rooms. The air handlers send cooled air straight into the living spaces, removing the need for ducts.
A new condenser unit
If the outdoor condenser unit in your air conditioner is starting to fail, then you might consider having just it replaced rather than the entire air conditioning system. It’s very important to consult professionals regarding this. Not only will they be able to tell if the condenser should be replaced, but they must make sure that any new condenser you have installed matches the indoor unit. A “mismatched system” can be highly inefficient and ineffective.
